Reason #23490980 Why I Love Fall: Apple Crisp

Pin It This is going to have to be a really quick post, but I've been itching to get back to blogging!  So here it goes!

Today I was finally reunited with my bestie in the kitchen.  The two of us in the kitchen is a dangerous thing sometimes...

Exhibit A: Butter on cabinets on the opposite side of the kitchen.

Exhibit B: Cucumber carvings.
 
Exhibit C: Someone needed some discipline.

Oh! And another exciting thing about today is that fact that I got to use my new Kitchen Aid!!  Being the bakingoholic that I am, I've been drooling over one of those puppies at Target for a long time now. Luckily enough, I have super AWESOME neighbors that gave me one that they didn't have a use for.  When they told me about it I was as excited as a kid who just got tickets to Disney World.  Haha. No, but seriously... :P

Inspired by the beautiful fall colors and weather we've been having, we decided to bake some apple crisp today.  YUM.  Mmmm and the aroma it filled the house with was heavenly.  Nothing beats the smell of cinnamon and apples in the fall.  I hope you enjoy this as much as we did!

APPLE CRISP

(Back to quick cell phone shots...sorry!)

Ingredients:
1 Large apple, peeled, cored, and sliced thinly
1/4 tsp Guam gum (or 1/2 tsp Cornstarch)
1/4 tsp Ground cinnamon

1 tbsp White whole wheat flour
2 tbsp Old fashioned oats
1 tbsp Granulated Sugar
1/4 tsp Ground cinnamon

1. Preheat the oven to 350 F degrees.
2. Prepare apple by peeling, coring, and slicing it thinly.
3. Dump apple slices into a small greased baking pan/dish.
4. Toss the apple slices with the guar gum (or cornstarch) and cinnamon.
5. In a small bowl combine the flour, oats,  sugar, cinnamon, and salt.
6. Mix in the olive oil until the mixture just starts to get crumbly.  If it doesn't you can always add a little more oil (no worries olive oil is good for you!).
7. Spread the topping mixture evenly over the apples.

9. Bake fore another 15 minutes or until topping is crisp.
10. Dig in! (Share only if you want to...)
