There is nothing like warm apple crisp–on any day of the year.  Especially when it is topped with a heavy scoop of ice cream!  I remember my grandmother’s and my mother’s kitchens, during the baking of fresh apple crisp.  It was tantalizing!  I can bring that scent back to my nose at a moment’s notice.  I love the smell of cinnamon as it’s baking and the memories that surface and tend to linger in my own kitchen when I bake a batch of my own.

Food is something that brings people together.  This recipe is one that brought our family together through the years–laughing, talking, reminiscing, and making memories over a serving of the crisp.  May it serve as just that for you and yours!

Gran’s Apple Crisp

4 c. apples (I use Granny Smith), peeled, cored, diced or sliced
2 T. flour
1/2 c. water
1/2 c. sugar
1 1/2 t. cinnamon
Mix as for pie filling.  Put into an 8X8 pan, coated with cooking spray.

Mix the following in a bowl together and sprinkle topping over apples:
3/4 c. brown sugar
3/4 c. Quick Quaker Oats
3/4 c. flour
1/2 c. butter

Bake 50-60 minutes on 350, until edges bubble.  Cool.  Serve with ice cream, or fresh cream on top.

Julie Everett

Cooking was not something that came easy to me. When I first got married, I wasn’t even sure how to boil water! Over the years–with many attempts at trying new things, I have come to love cooking for my family and friends. Cooking is a way to express yourself and the love in your heart. It takes a little effort, but is certainly worth it when you fill the tummies of those who are most important to you.

I like to keep things simple in the kitchen. (The fewer ingredients, the better!) It is my goal to share with you some of my family’s favorites, keeping it simple and requiring little time from you and your already busy schedule.

Along with cooking, I have a profound love of teaching–children and adults alike. I am an Instructional Learning Coach for Kearney Public Schools. I live on a lake along the Platte River with my husband, Jason. We have three children: Brittany, Gordon, and Colvin. I enjoy running, biking, long walks, painting, decorating, hanging on the beach, reading, and of course, cooking and eating!
