We start with apples. These are Black Arkansas varieties. They are very firm and sweet, perfect for baking.
I bought a new Oxo grip peeler for this. I've been using the same peeler since before we were married, it was quite dull. I usually hate peeling things, but I actually liked it with this one. Except for the part where I nicked my finger because I didn't get resistance when I expected it.
Apples, sliced and mixed with orange juice. Yes, I know it's supposed to be lemon juice. I'm out. Deal with it.
The finished Apple Crisp, fresh from the oven. Not as pretty as I would like, but I can work on that.
2 cups-ish of sliced apples
1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup quick oats
1/4 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup butter
1/8 tsp salt
2 tsp cinnamon
Peel and slice apples and toss with lemon (or orange) juice. In a mixing bowl, combine dry ingredients and cut in the butter. You can use a fancy pastry cutter for this, or you can just squish it up with your hands like I do. Mix about a quarter of the topping with the apples, then spread in a baking dish. Spread the rest around on top and bake for 50 minutes at 375 degrees.
