Apple Craisin Crisp a la mode

SONY DSCHappy Monday!  This past weekend was a perfect fall weekend. The boys took a fall hike with my sons Boy Scout troop and my daughter and I had a full day of shopping, getting our nails done and seeing a movie. If you are looking for a fun silly movie for this Thanksgiving season I suggest you go see Free Birds. We had a great time watching these turkeys go back into time and get turkey taken off the holiday menu! However, sorry Turkeys, I’m really looking forward to chowing down on you poor tasty things in a few weeks! Yesterday was a perfect day with an always amazing church service then some kick back family time! The weekends always fly by so quickly but we sure do know how to pack them full of fun;-)

Last night I whipped up a new twist on my Apple Crisp. Everyone in my house loves Apple Pie and Apple Crisp so when I told the kids I was adding Craisins into the crisp they were not too happy! The protesting came about yet I added them anyways and they really loved it! I wish it were that easy all the time! The craisins were a perfect mix with the apples and it was just as delicious as it looks! If you are looking for a little twist on your crisp then give my recipe here a try, I bet you will love it! Here is my recipe!



Crisco for coating your 8 x 8 baking dish

6 large apples ( I did 4 granny smith, 2 gala), peeled and sliced (about 1/4 to 1/2″ thick)

2/3 cups granulated sugar

1.5 tbsp cinnamon

1/2 cup packed light brown sugar

2/3 cups rolled oats

1/3 cup all purpose flour

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 cup craisins

4 tbsp soft butter, cut into smaller chunks



Grease your baking dish and preheat your oven to 350 degrees.  In a large mixing bowl mix the sugar, salt and cinnamon together.SONY DSC Add the apples and toss until they are all coated well. Place them in your baking dish then add the craisins and mix in well.SONY DSC In the same bowl you mixed your apples in mix your flour, brown sugar and oats together until mixed well. Add your butter and use your fingers to mix this all together so that it forms chunks. When the mixtures is ready spread it evenly over your apples.



Bake at 350 degrees for about 50 minutes or until cooked well and browned on top. Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top! It’s just fine on its own if you want to skip the ice cream!
