When It's Yucky Outside....

When it looks like this outside:

(rainy & windy with temps in the 40's)

I love to see this in the kitchen:

I made apple crisp this afternoon with some of those delicious apples we picked at the orchard last week.

All I can say is........YUMMY!

Here is the recipe I found on Food if you're interested.

Apple Crisp


5 apples (they recommended Granny Smith but we used Fuji)

peeled, cored & chopped small

1/4 cup finely chopped pecans

3 tbsp all purpose flour

1/2 cup brown sugar

2 tbsp maple syrup

1 tbsp lemon juice


3/4 cup all purpose flour

1/3 cup brown sugar

1/4 tsp ground cinnamon

1/4 tsp salt

6 tbsp chilled butter, cut into pieces

1/4 cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix all ingredients together. Place into casserole dish or ramekins.

Mix topping: flour, brown sugar, cinammon, & salt in large bowl. Blend butter into the mixture until it forms pea size lumps. Stir in pecans & sprinkle over filling.

Bake for 35-40 minutes. Cool 10 minutes before serving.

Oh YUM....I LOVE apple crisp!!! They said we are FINALLY supposed to clear up a bit this afternoon. It seems like we have had rain or drizzle FOREVER which is very unusual around here!
