It’s autumn and that means all thing apple. I was just at a pumpkin carving party and brought an apple crisp for dessert. It was a huge hit, so I thought you all should have the recipe as well. I got the recipe when I bought a piece of stoneware from the Pampered Chef, so credits to them. It is super easy and always a crowd pleaser.
I am not a fan of the one-use kitchen gadget, but I do make an exception for the apple peeler/corer/slicer. It take no time at all to get your apples ready, and that is the hardest part of this recipe. So go ahead and invest in one.

- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 tablespoon good quality cinnamon

- Cut the peeled and cored apple slices in half and place in a 9″x 9″ baking dish.
- Combine all of the remaining ingredients and mix until crumbly. Sprinkle the mixture over the apples.
- Bake for 35-40 minutes or until apples are tender. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
Yield-10 servings. This recipe also doubles easily, just use a 9″ x 13″ baking dish.
I found this recipe in Country Living magazine and it is my go-to cocktail at any autumn party. Last Thanksgiving I made these as the welcome cocktail, serving it to my guests as they arrived. Again, super easy and just delicious.
