What the Beck???
“Apple Crisp” by Winifred F. Rempfer
Festival of Favorites Cookbook
I was glancing through my cookbooks looking for a recipe for pumpkin bread, when I realized that this recipe book was not copyrighted. I plan on making several of these recipes, and I can actually print the recipe right in the blog. I will, of course, list the name of the person who submitted the recipe to the cookbook. I decided to begin with an Apple Crisp, since I had some apples that needed to be used immediately.

Apple Base Ingredients:
¼ teasp. cinnamon ½ c. granulated sugar
1 Tblsp. flour 3 cups apples
Blend the above ingredients together and put in a greased pan. I used an 8 x 8 inch pan.
½ c. dry oatmeal 1/8 teasp. baking powder
½ c. brown sugar ¼ c. softened butter
½ c. flour
Blend the ingredients together and cut in the butter until crumbs. Place this mixture on top of the apples and bake in a 375 degree oven for 35 – 50 minutes, or until light brown and apples are tender. The reason the time frame is so long is because the original recipe said 350 degree oven, but gave no cooking time. When I made it, I called my Mom and asked what she baked hers on and changed in mid-cooking to Mom's degrees and time.
I really liked this recipe. I ate it warm and it was rich and comforting. I also shared it with the plumbers that were working here yesterday, and sent home some with Jerome and Travis. Yum!!!
I began by making the topping.
In a bowl, I mixed the brown sugar, dry oatmeal,
flour and baking powder.
I added in the softened butter.
I cut in the butter.
Now, on to the apple base.
In a bowl, I added the granulated sugar,
and the apples.
I used Red Delicious apples for this recipe.
I mixed it all together.
I used a greased 8 inch square dish.
The apple based was dumped in,
and then I sprinkled on the topping.
Too bad I forgot the photo.
It was so warm and wonderful.
This is a must for the fall season!
FYI - Those are Pioneer Woman's cute
little bowls. The spoons are not hers,
but I did find them at Walmart, too.
