Easy After-School Apple Crisp



Ken and I are very happy that it's almost back to school time. We've had a hell of a time getting our oldest her required immunization, but at last all the details are worked out, and we're ready for school. It may have already started in your area, but our kiddos go back this Monday. They are starting at new schools this year here in Texas, and with our recent move, we know that back-to-school will get us all back on a schedule with more structure. That is just what we need to feel more at-home and settled in.

If you have kids back in school, you may be wanting to get organized and bookmark some recipes. I'd like to post more easy weeknight meals this season, and some more tips on getting organized. In the meantime, here is a yummy and easy after school snack everyone will love.

I really like a good crisp, because it's an easy fix whenever we're craving pie and I don't feel like messing with homemade, rolled crust. I've made apple crisp before on the blog, but I this is a much quicker and easier version that is perfect for after school (or a late-night craving).


INGREDIENTS

For the Filling
  • Oil or butter for ramekins or baking dish
  • 2 small apples per person (or one large granny smith per person)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbs cinnamon sugar (or half a tbs of each if you have ground cinnamon and granulated sugar)
  • dash of nutmeg
For the Topping
  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
  • ½ cup flour
  • 6 tbs oil or melted butter
  • 2 tbs cinnamon sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla

INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Preheat oven to 350 F and grease your ramekins or baking dish.
  2. Peel and chop apples and place them in a small mixing bowl. (Dice them into small cubes so they bake more quickly). Add cinnamon sugar, nutmeg, and vanilla flavoring and mix thoroughly. If you don’t want to bake, you could just stop right here and serve the chopped cinnamon apples as a nice treat!
  3. Spread evenly into baking dishes.
  4. Just use the same bowl you used for the apples to make the topping. Combine the oats, oil/butter, vanilla, and spices then spread evenly over the apple filling. Sprinkle the tops with a little extra cinnamon sugar. If you’re using individual baking dishes like I did, you can place them on a baking sheet before you put them in the oven.
  5. Bake at 350 for approximately 30-35 min or until apples are fork-tender, then broil 5 min until the tops get golden and slightly crispy. *Note: If you use one large baking dish, you may need to bump up the baking time. Enjoy!
