Hi all!  I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!  We had 23 people in our home.  It was a great day.  So much good food was had by all.  I will share some of the recipes and our fun table decor with you over the next few days.  First, I want to share the recipe for apple crisp.  The recipe is award winning after all!!!  You may remember it from my last post {here}.  On Thanksgiving morning my mom, my daughter and I made this yummy treat.

The recipe.

Apple Crisp

7 cups of peeled sliced cooking apples

1 Tablespoon of  lemon juice

2 Tablespoons of water

3/4 cup of packed brown sugar

1/2 cup all purpose flour

1/2 cup rolled oats

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 cup butter

1/2 cup chopped nuts (I used walnuts but it also works with with pecans)

Preheat oven to 375.  Place peeled and sliced apples in a 9″ square of 11×7 pan.  Sprinkle evenly lemon juice and water. (Fresh squeezed lemon juice is always better)  Combine brown sugar, flour,  rolled oats, cinnamon and nuts.  Cut in butter until crumbly.   Sprinkle over apples.  Bake for 40-45 minutes or until apples are tender.  Serve warm with a scoop of ice cream.  Serves 8-10.

While we were making the apple crisp we took a a few photos to show you the process.

First, we gathered all of our ingredients. I hate when you are half way through making a dish and you realize that you are missing something.

I used light brown sugar but the recipe works with dark brown sugar also.

Our bowl of brown sugar, four, rolled oats, cinnamon, butter, and walnuts.

Here is where we cut in the butter. You can use a pastry knife but if you don't have one we are showing you how to use and fork and knife. Literally you use a cutting motin to mix the ingredients. Do not stir.

The apple crisp is ready for the oven!

Yum! Where is that vanilla ice cream?

My mom and Mallory(my daughter) being "hams" for the camera... I guess being a ham on Thanksgiving is acceptable!
