With all this snow falling, I can’t resist to share this delicious recipe.
It’s so easy and quick to make. I prefer Cortland apples because they don’t turn brown that quickly and they stay true to their shape when baked.
6 – Cortland apples, peeled, cored, cut in wedges
1 tsp cornstarch
1 tsp sugar
1 ¼ cup oats
¼ cup Graham crumbs
¼ brown sugar
½ cup butter, melted
Preheat oven at 350 degrees F. Pierce little holes in the pie crust so it doesn’t bubble and protect the edges with foil paper. Bake crust until golden.
Cut, core and peel apples. Add the cornstarch and sugar to the apples and mix thoroughly to coat them. Sprinkle cinnamon to taste.
Melt butter. In a bowl, mix oats, crumbs and sugar together. Pour the melted butter and mix.
*The delicious smell will tempt you to eat the crisp before putting it on the pie! But don’t! ‘Cause it tastes even better baked!
Place apples in the crust and top it with the crisp.
Bake at 350 degrees F for 30 – 45 minutes or until a dark golden brown.
