It’s time for another Friday Food Favorite!
I just love old cook books. They just harbor so much charm and personality. My favorite are the good older church cookbooks where the ladies of the church work together to create a collection of recipes of their family favorites. You just know they hold tried and true recipes, many of which have been handed down from generation to generation.
Recently I wanted to make something special for my sweetie. He loves apple pie.
My grandmother and I had made him a special one that I gave him back when we were dating. Making that pie is one of the fondest memories I have of my grandmother.
She was a pie maker extraordinaire, but I didn’t have the time or the patience to make one of those this time. I needed something a bit simpler.
Grandma’s Apple Crisp
As I thumbed through the pages, my eyes fell onto a recipe for Apple Crisp. One of my aunts had submitted the recipe and had entitled it, “Mother’s Apple Crisp”. Well, if it was her mother’s recipe, then I knew it was my grandmother’s recipe and it would be delicious. I didn’t need to look any further.
Grandma’s apple crisp called for the following ingredients:
3 – 4 cups of apples
1 – 1 ½ cups of sugar
3 tablespoons of flour
1 cup brown sugar
1 ½ cups of flour
1 cup of oatmeal
1 cup of butter
1 tsp cinnamon
I began by slicing the apples into thin slices and placing them in a greased 8X8 pan.
Mix together the cup of brown sugar, 1 ½ cups of flour, the cup of oatmeal and the cup of butter.
