As I just recently went apple picking, I wanted to try some apple recipes, since I don’t cook all that often. I really enjoyed baking with these apples I picked though! It was a blast!
Apple Crisp for Two
3 yellow delicious apples
1/2 cup oats
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup flour
1/4 tbsp of cinnamon
1/3 tsp of salt
1/4 cup (4 tbsp) softened butter
1/4 tbsp sugar + pinch of cinnamon
Combine the oats, sugar, flour, cinnamon, salt, and butter till it has a crumbly texture to it. Cutting in the butter can be the hardest part. Press most of it (a little more than a third) into the bottom of a pan. I used a round glass over safe container that was 8″. Peel your apples and slice into thin slices. Spread these over the crumble. Sprinkle the sugar and cinnamon mixture over the apples. Add the rest of the crumble to the top, it doesn’t have to cover the apples completely. Bake at 350 degrees for 35-45 minutes, check to ensure the apples are tender.
Best served warm with vanilla ice-cream!
So that was my adventure into baking (sort of) next I wanted to try a staple favorite with a bit of a twist. I love caramel apples! I want to try making more types again soon maybe!!
“Poison” Caramel Apples
Apples of your choosing
Caramel Bits 6 oz
(I filled a tub of caramel bits from the bulk section in my grocery store)
2 tbsp water
Black gel food coloring
Melt the caramel in a small saucepan with the water. Stir frequently so the caramel doesn’t burn or stick to the pan. Add desired amount of food coloring to achieve the color you want. It shouldn’t be too much, don’t make the same mistake I did and add WAY too much. Work in a drop or two at a time once the caramel is smooth. Dip in your apples that are on sticks and place on wax paper. Stick them in the fridge to solidify the caramel! Make sure to let the caramel soften outside the fridge before eating them though!
