Ever since I went apple picking a few weeks back, I haven’t really made any recipes that feature apples besides apple fritters and gourmet caramel apples. However, the temperature dipped into the 30’s over the weekend making it the perfect opportunity to turn on the oven. I decided on apple crunch; a sweet and gooey inside like an apple pie with a crunchy cake-like topping, a scoop of vanilla ice cream from Sarris paired with pumpkin carving made for the quintessential fall evening.
4 to 6 medium apples, peeled, cored and chopped
1 cup sugar + 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon; combined
1 tablespoon butter, cut in small pieces
½ cup all-purpose flour
½ cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 tablespoons butter
1. Mix apples and cinnamon sugar mixture together. Place in a greased 8 inch glass baking dish and add at butters pieces.
2. Combine topping ingredeients, stir until blended and spread over apples.
3. Bake at 350 for 30-40 minutes or until topping has cooked. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.
