Makeshift Monday

Happy Monday, everyone! It’s hard to believe it’s the first day of October, and this upcoming weekend is Thanksgiving (for my Canadian friends)!

Turkey, stuffing, pumpkin pie, apple crisp – yum!

Here is a great apple crisp recipe from Martha Stewart!

APPLE CRISP

3/4 cup all-purpose flour, (spooned and leveled)

1/4 cup packed light-brown sugar

 1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons granulated sugar

 8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, cold, cut into small cubes

1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats (not quick-cooking)

3 pounds apples, such as Empire, Gala, or Braeburn, peeled, cored, and cut into 1/2-inch chunks

 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a large bowl, mix together flour, brown sugar, salt, and 2 tablespoons granulated sugar. Cut butter into flour, using a pastry blender or two knives, until mixture is the texture of coarse meal. Add oats, and use your hands to toss and squeeze mixture until large, moist clumps form. Transfer to freezer to chill while you prepare apples.
  2. In another large bowl, toss apples with lemon juice, cinnamon, and remaining 1/2 cup granulated sugar. Transfer to a shallow 2-quart baking dish, and sprinkle with topping mixture. Place baking dish on a rimmed baking sheet, and bake until golden and bubbling, 55 to 65 minutes. Let cool 10 minutes before serving.
