At this time of the year for our first course I love to make warm Apple Crisp. This is a recipe that I have been using for years and I believe it was found in one of my Bon Appetit magazines. Our guests really enjoy this as their first bite before the main entree. I hope you enjoy it too.
6 medium sized Granny Smith apples; peeled, cored and cut into 1/2 inch cubes
1/4 c. (or more) orange juice
1 T. rum
1/2 tsp. vanilla
3/4 c. firmly packed brown sugar
3/4 c. flour
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. old-fashioned oats
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 c. butter, chilled and cut into small pieces
Set oven temperature to 350 and butter a 9-inch baking pan.
Place cut apples in baking pan. Mix together orange juice, rum and vanilla and pour over the apples.
Combine together the first 5 ingredients of the topping. Cut in the butter.
Sprinkle the topping mixture over the apples.
Bake 30 – 40 minutes until juices bubble.
I like to serve it warm with a nice dollop of vanilla yogurt.
I’ll look forward to seeing you soon,
