The cool weather is slowly creeping up. Yes, it’s that time of the year: Apple Picking.
We have a few apple orchards nearby. Every Fall, we always go to pick our own apples.
They have such a wide variety: Spartan, Liberty, Lobo, McIntosh, Cortland.
I’m sure I forgot a few…They are all delicious.
This recipe is even easier to make than my Apple Crisp. A popular Quebec cook had it on his show, Ricardo and Friends. I used my crisp though because I love the taste of Graham crumbs. Yum!
1 ¼ cup oats
¼ cup Graham crumbs
¼ brown sugar
½ cup butter, melted
6 McIntosh apples*
Preheat oven at 350 degrees F.
To make the crisp, combine the first 4 ingredients in a bowl and set aside.
Wash and core the apples. You can also use a melon baller to remove the core.
Using a paring knife, carefully spiral down the apple to cut the skin only (see picture) and then cut about ¼ inch off the top. (Someone didn’t follow my instructions!!! Spiral down…!)
Place the apples in a Pyrex pan. Fill them with the crisp enough to make a little mound on top.
Bake for 35 minutes and serve with vanilla ice cream.
What a treat!
*A real apple connaisseur will know that the apple in the picture is not a McIntosh…I have no clue which of the ones I listed it is.
For this recipe, McIntosh apples have to be used because when cooked, the flesh turns into a sauce-like consistency which make them easier to scoop up. Yum!!!
