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.

Sycamore, Illinois

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.

Topping Ingredients:
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.
