Apple Crisp

Easy Apple Crisp,I mean so easy.  Since enrolling in a local CSA I have been trying to use fresh vegetables in fruits in different recipes. I wanted to make an Apple Crisp, only had Macintosh Apples, Even though the recipe says that it tastes great if you use a mix, and next time I will definitely do that.

Ingredients:

  • 6 medium (6 cups) apples, peeled, cored, sliced
  • 3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup uncooked old-fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup cold Land O Lakes® Butter

Instructions:

Heat oven to 375°F.

Place apples into ungreased 8-inch square baking pan.

Combine brown sugar, oats, flour and cinnamon in bowl; cut in butter with pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle sugar mixture over apples. Bake 25-35 minutes or until apples are tender and topping is golden brown.

Serve warm with ice cream, if desired.

Caramel Apple Oatmeal Cookies

These I paired with Sangria, for 3rd Annual Cookies and Cocktails. The recipe came from Bloom Designs Online. I didn’t use the caramel glaze because lack of ingredients, I just used basic caramel sauce. The cookies have the consistency of a oatmeal rather than a crunchy cookie. Which bothered some people.

You need

  • 2 3/4 quick cooking oats
  • 1 1/4 flour
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 salt
  • 3/4 cup softened butter
  • 1 1/4 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 2 apples peeled and finely diced (fuji or granny smith work well)
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 2 tablespoons caramel sauce

Preheat oven to 350. Mix together first six ingredients and set aside.  In a standing mixer with a paddle attachment, cream butter and brown sugar.  Add egg, vanilla and milk.  Mix until combined. Add oats mixture and blend until just incorporated.  Mix in apples.  Drop by the tablespoon onto parchment lined cookie sheet and bake for 11 minutes until lightly browned.  Let sit on cookie sheet until cooled.

For the glaze, whisk together powdered sugar, 1 tablespoon milk and caramel sauce until smooth.  Add more milk if necessary.

Once cooled, drizzle caramel mix over cookies.

Apples in a Blanket

Okay, so I am still working on the name, but they definitely need a name.

So I saw this recipe on pinterest, basically three ingredients, super easy. Lets give it a try.

The directions were super simple and perfect for Tuesday Night Dinners!

Apples in a Blanket

So I bought stop and shop filling, and cut all the apples in half, before placing them onto the rolled out crescent rolls. They were right about a spoonful, you could barely fit any apple on it before it oozing out of everywhere. We decided that next time we should mince the apples. ( I made these at a friends house for Tuesday night dinner)

I also figured out how to roll them perfectly right as the batch was ending. Fold the two corners of the triangle in, and then roll it, from the large part of the triangle until you reach the small part.

I rolled it a cinnamon sugar mixture, but also decided next time we would use more cinnamon. I also wasn’t crazy about the filling, and was going to use name brand next time rather than Generic Brand.

BUT THESE THINGS CAME OUT DELISH. and they were STUPID easy. Then Alyssa the TND host made home made ice cream with my ice cream maker and dessert was delish!!!

Heres the pumpkin version of this:

Pumpkins in a Blanket

UPDATE: Yet another version I have tried. Stuffing not only apples in there- BUT CARAMELS. I rolled the caramels in cinnamon and sugar and rolled into the apples. Tasted great warm!!!! Caramel Apple PIE YUM.

Success!!!
