I made apple crisp for the first time. This recipe is so simple and easy.

This is how I grease a pan: a slab of butter on a paper towel. Fancy, right?
One cup brown sugar, one cup rolled oats, one cup flour, 1/2 cup melted butter. Mix it up!
I actually thought it would have more ‘wet ingredients’ but the only component that is keeping the ingredients together is the butter. I think it’s supposed to look like this. Put half of the mixture on the bottom of the pan.
Chop some apples. I chopped up about 2. Some advice, get a good peeler and a good knife!! I had a hard time cutting some apples, go figure. 🙂 Anyway, I end up mixing the apples with some cinnamon. I didn’t measure the cinnamon and it wasn’t mentioned in the recipe, but I thought it would taste better.
Cinnamon apples in the middle and then the rest of the mixture on top.
The original recipe called for 1/2 cup of white sugar on top! A little too much for my taste, so I just sprinkled some on, about 3-4 tablespoons. I also sprinkled some cinnamon on top as well.
I put dollops of butter on top and put it in the oven on the middle rack for 40 minutes or you can wait until it is golden brown. I didn’t get a chance to take a pic of the finished product, but it turned out pretty good! We didn’t have ice cream and I think that would have made it 10 times better. I also liked that it didn’t have a lot of ingredients.
Also, I changed a few things like the white sugar and mixing some cinnamon with the apples. Doing this wouldn’t have changed the recipe a whole lot, even though I have mentioned I try to make baking dishes exact the first time. I also like to read reviews under the recipe. A lot of the times, readers put in their own advice and recipe changes and it sounds a lot better.
