Fall is here...

Remember when I said we went over to Courtney (Trevor's sister) and Eric's on Sunday? Well since they were making dinner, we made dessert, well... I made dessert :)
I was in the mood for fall, so I made some apple crisp. It was my first time making it, and it turned out pretty yummy, if I do say so myself. The only thing I would change in this recipe would be to maybe let the apple slices soak in the cinnamon and nutmeg. Eating this along with some vanilla bean ice cream really got me in the spirits of fall... well that and my jack-o-lantern, pumpkin smelling candle :) yummerz.
 4 medium tart cooking apples sliced (4 cups)
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup Gold Medal all-purpose flower
1/2 cup quick-cooking oats, or old-fashioned oats
1/3 cup margarine, softened
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
cream or ice cream
(FYI I doubled this recipe! I also added some Vanilla Flavoring)
  1. Heat oven to 375ยบF. Grease bottom and sides of 8-inch square pan with shortening.
  2. Spread apples in pan. In medium bowl, stir remaining ingredients except cream until well mixed; sprinkle over apples.
  3. Bake about 30 minutes or until topping is golden brown and apples are tender when pierced with a fork. Serve warm with cream.

Side note:
So I am really into history and facts, which is probably why I am going to school to be a teacher. Anyways, just now writing this blog post, when I wrote about my jack-o-lantern pumpkin candle... the thought came to me, "Why do we call them Jack-o-lanterns? Was there some guy named Jack involved?" So of course I googled it. Scroll down to the "folklore" section. Thought you guys might want to know...
pretty creepy, perfect for Halloween I guess.

  7. My parent's peach tree is overloading with delicious peaches, hence I've been eating a ton of peach crisp. Nothing beats crisps. Except maybe cobblers.
    That jack-o-lantern story was AWESOME. I love it!
