Apple Crisp

100_2967Fall is here and apples are ripe. The apple tree outside my bedroom window has dropped it’s apples months ago. They usually land with a big thud (that increases as they get bigger and riper) on my metal roof and roll down then off into the garden. Another apple tree by the mudroom door was full of ripe apples, most of which we picked – these Empire Apples are my favourite. I have one more apple tree in the middle of the front yard which I leave for the other inhabitants of this land: birds, squirrels, deer, etc.
To celebrate the season, I want to share one of my favourite recipes. I love to make this Apple Crisp in the fall when the apples from my trees are ripe and juicy. It’s the perfect dessert for those cooler autumn days.

Apple Crisp
6-8 Apples                                                   1/2 cup wheat germ
1/2 cup raisins                                            1/2 cup butter
1/3 cup water                                             1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup rolled oats                                        2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 cup whole wheat flour

French Vanilla Ice Cream

Place sliced apples in a buttered 9″x13″ pan. Sprinkle with raisins and water. Combine the rest of the ingredients and sprinkle evenly over the apples/raisins. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes or until the apples are soft.
Serve warm with French Vanilla Ice Cream.
