Won’t you join me…

One of the routines that I personally enjoy tremendously leading up to the holidays is putting up my spring/summer dishes in early October, and switch them out with my fall/holiday dishes.  I like to do this on a day when I am by myself, and enjoy the beauty of the different plates, cups and saucers etc. as I am switching them out.

Now that that is accomplished, and the weather is gradually getting nippy… won’t you join me for a bit of apple crisp (yes, we still haven’t gotten tired of the countless rounds of apple crisp I have been making, hahaha!) accompanied by something hot to drink, served in a fall theme?

Have a wonderful autumn weekend, everyone.  I will be back on Monday!

Easy Apple Crisp

Much to my delight, my sister-in-law brought me some home grown apples over the weekend. Can you spot my “leaning” Tower of Apples?

I have been making rounds of Apple Crisp with the apples. The recipe is as follows:

5 cups sliced, peeled apples
2 tbs sugar
1/2 cup regular rolled oats
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon each of ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, and ginger
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup chopped nuts (I used pecans)

For filling, place fruit in a baking dish, stir in sugar.

For topping, in a mixing bowl combine oats, brown sugar, flour, and nutmeg, ginger and cinnamon. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in nuts. Sprinkle mixture over filling.

Bake in 375 F for 30-35 minutes. It is that easy!

Serve warm with vanilla ice cream, if desire.
