extra apples? time for apple crisp!

Organic apples have been very affordable lately ($1/lb or less!) and I’ve gotten a little over-excited and bought a few too many.  But they haven’t gone to waste!  I LOVE my simple recipe for apple crisp so much I’ve made it twice in the last two weeks.  It’s not as high in sugar as similar recipes…I’ve even eaten it for breakfast a time or two. 🙂  It’s also a delicious dessert paired with vanilla bean ice cream or whipped cream.

Apple Crisp

  • 1 1/4 c. baking mix (I use a gluten-free mix and it works great…you can also use regular flour)
  • 1 c. rolled oats
  • 1/2 c. brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. ground cloves
  • 1/2 c. butter, melted
  • 5-6 c. peeled, cored and sliced apples
  • 1/3 c. white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/3 c. water
  • 3 T. maple syrup

Preheat oven to 350.  Combine baking mix, oats, brown sugar, cinnamon and cloves.  Add melted butter and stir until crumbly.  Press 1/3 of the oat mixture into the bottom of a greased 9 x 13 baking dish.  Cover with sliced apples.  In a small saucepan, combine white sugar, cornstarch, water and maple syrup.  Cook and stir over medium heat until slightly thickened, about 7-8 minutes.  Pour over apples.  Top with remaining oat mixture.  Bake in preheated oven 45 minutes or until apples are tender.

    You should make a cookbook. Not only are your recipes good (I’m assuming, I haven’t tried them all) but your pictures are amazing. A truly good cookbook has classy pictures. It would sell big. And I’ll only take 10% of the profits for the idea. I’m not greedy.

    I agree with Brittany! You should put all your recipes and pictures together and have them published and call it “Cooking in the Clouds with Abby”!
    And I get another 10% for the title idea! 🙂
    But, honestly, Sis, your recipes and pictures are great! Dad saw this picture and is begging me to make the apple crisp. So, I bought some apples and am anxious to try it!
