Bad Apples? No such thing..


Apple Crisp about to go in the oven ^

Today i made my husband lunch to take with him to work. Packing him a apple. He called me saying it was bad and he couldn't eat it. I took one and cut it.. it was a little soft but... i gave it to my daughter who loves apples! she wouldn't eat it so then their was the dilemma... i have 6 and a half bad apples.. what to do??
Make apple crisp of course!! The easiest apple recipe and one that makes a wonderfully yummy dessert! It was very good we all loved it!!

So do you have some apples around that have gone a little soft and the kids or you wont eat anymore?? DO NOT toss them out. Instead make a yummy meal outta them.

Apple Crisp..
I used 6 and 1/2 medium sized peeled and cored apples. I cut them into small pieces (you pick the size) spread them in the bottom of a baking dish. Then mix in a bowl 1 large egg 1 cup white sugar, 1 teaspoon cinnamon and 1 cup flour. Mix together till you have crumbly texture all the way through. Spread crumble mixture on top of apples and bake on 350 for 40 min! Cool and eat. Can be served a la mode... (with ice cream on top)

Applesauce..
You need:
4 apples - peeled, cored and chopped, 3/4 cup water, 1/4 cup white sugar, 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

You do:
In a saucepan, combine apples, water, sugar, and cinnamon. Cover, and cook over medium heat for 15 to 20 minutes, or until apples are soft. Allow to cool, then mash with a fork or potato masher.


Apple Pie..
