Cinnamon Apple Crisp ...

Almost fall and we'll soon be getting bunch
and bunches of really great apples.

here's a cute recipe
It is from Lisa @ 100 days of Real Food
google her, she has awesome recipes and great lunch ideas

You can prepare this in 1/2 pint mason jars or you
can just put in a pie plate. I wanted to make these in the jars
it's cute right?

here's what you do....

For the filling
- 2 large apples. I used 1 gala and 1 granny smith
-1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon butter, melted
- 1 tablespoon honey

Crumble Topping
- 3/4 cup rolled oats
- 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
- 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped (optional)
- 3 tablespoon butter, melted
- 2 tablespoon honey
- 1/4 teaspoon salt

preheat oven to 375 degrees
quarter your apples, then slice again and then cut the slices in half
(long ways and crossways)
Toss the apples in a bowl with the cinnamon, butter and honey
here's a good tip from Lisa, measure your butter first then
when you measure your honey, it will slide right out of your measuring spoon

Evenly divide the mixture into the 8 - 1/2 pint jars. Place the jars
on a large baking sheet.

In the same mixing bowl that you mixed the apples, combine all
of your crumble topping ingredients.
Evenly divide the mixture over top 
of the apples.

Cover the jar with one large piece of foil and bake for 25 minutes

Remove the foil, turn oven to broil and cook or 2 to 3 minutes
until the topping turns a light golden brown

Service with vanilla ice cream
This evening Johnny and I each had one right out of the fridge 
and it was delicious.......good hot or cold.

the only thing I will do different next time is I will increase
the amount of apples and really pack them in the jar tight
they cook down a lot
