Apple Crisp

Mike's aunt gave us 2 grocery bags of apples that she picked from a friends yard. They are beautiful apples and very delicious. I would love to try to make applesauce but half of the apples are granny smith which would make sour applesauce. However, granny smith make wonderful apple crisp so Charlee and I made apple crisp.

This recipe came from Taste of Home June/July 2005.

5 medium tart apples, peeled and sliced
1 1/4 cups sugar, divided
1 3/4 tsp cinnamon, divided
1 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup cold butter
1 cup water

In a bowl, combine the apples, 1/4 cup sugar and 1 tsp cinnamon. Transfer to a greased 8-in square baking dish. In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt and remaining sugar; cut in butter until crumbly. Sprinkle over apples, pressing down to smooth top.
Slowly pour water over the top; sprinkle with remaining cinnamon. Bake, uncovered, at 400 for 40-45 minutes or until apples are tender. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream, because you cant have apple crisp without vanilla ice cream. :)

I also have another recipe that I have made several times over the past few years. It also came from Taste of Home or one of my other magazines. And you must serve this with vanilla ice cream as well. :)

Apple Dumpling Bake

2 tubes (8 oz each) refrigerated crescent rolls
2 medium Granny Smith apples, peeled and cored
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup butter, melted
3/4 cup sprite

Unroll crescent rolls & separate dough into 16 triangles. Cut each apple into 8 wedges. Wrap a crescent dough triangle around each apple wedge. Place in a greased 13x9 baking dish.
In a bowl, combine sugar and butter; sprinkle over rolls. Slowly pour the soda around the rolls (do not stir). Sprinkle with cinnamon. Bake uncovered at 350 for 35-40 mins or until golden brown. Serve warm with ice cream.
