A couple weeks ago, my husband bought me a new camera for an early Christmas present. I choose the Cannon Rebel. I have always grown up using a Kodak or a Cannon. A sweet friend of mine came over, and while our boys played together she showed me some fun techniques. I am really enjoying the challenge of learning how to use this camera and all that it can do. Remember a couple of weeks ago when we went to the apple farm? http://travelingbugwiththreeboys-kelleyn.blogspot.com/2009/10/harvest.html Well, this is just one thing I made with those apples. This is Apple Crisp to the max because it has double the topping. The topping is my favorite part.
8-10 medium size apples. I used Granny Smith and Roma this time, but usually I use a combination of Granny and Gala,1/2 the juice of a squeezed lemon,1/3 cup brown sugar, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/4 cup of slivered almonds -could use walnuts.
Cut apples up in bite size pieces and mix with lemon juice, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Don't have brown sugar then just use white. I just like the richness the brown sugar adds to this recipe. Spread in a square baking dish.
In a bowl combine 1 1/2 cups flour, 3/4 cup sugar, 3/4 cup brown sugar, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1 cup oatmeal, and 2 sticks butter. That's right 2 sticks! Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees F for 1 hour.
