Delicious Dessert: Apple Crisp

Hey Y'all!!! I hope you had a wonderful long weekend!! I know we did - filled with the three 'F's: friends, family, and fun!  More on that tomorrow =)

Yesterday I was charged with the task of making a dessert.  I was going to use my default: chocolate chip cookies or cupcakes.  When I got to the store, I found I wanted something more refreshing - something more in line with summer [read: side of ice cream].  I took to Pinterest - thank goodness for this site, am I right?! Google is great and all, but Pinterest knows exactly what I need.

I came across this recipe by Love, Pomegranate House.
It seemed relatively easy and the ingredients consisted mostly of items I would normally have at home.  The apples were the only item listed that I needed to buy.

Apple Crisp

10 cups apples cored and sliced (I read 10 apples yesterday when I made this!)
1 cup white sugar
1 tbsp flour
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup water (this is not always necessary as sugar makes the apples release juices)
2 cups quick cooking oats
2 cups flour
2 cups brown sugar
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 cup butter softened

{How To}
1. Preheat the oven to 350*
2. Toss sliced apples (I diced mine into squares) with white sugar, flour, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Place coated apples in a 9x13 pan. Pour water evenly over mixture (you don't NEED the water....I did this but found that I would have been fine without.  It made for a runny mixture after it baked)
3. Combine oats, flour, brown sugar, baking powder, and baking soda in a large bowl.  Cut the butter into the mixture - **I actually mostly melted the butter for this step so that I could get the dry mixture wet to create a dough-like mixture.
4.  Crumble evenly over the apple mixture
5. Bake for 45 minutes.  Allow to cool for 10 minutes.
6. Serve with vanilla ice cream*

Number six was MY addition =) It was delicious with a little ice cream! This was such a quick and easy recipe.  What took longest was the baking.   The Husband loved the crumble so much, he suggested we make that piece alone without the apples.

Did you try any new recipes this weekend?
