Apple Crisp

I was taking a few pictures while making this. You know… in case I want to do a recipe post. (Not all documented recipes turn out well)

But when everyone starts crowding around the oven before it’s done moaning that apple crisp is their favorite, I think that’s generally a good sign.

Plus, it seems an appropriately warm, home-y thing to eat when March is so set on coming in like a lion around here.

So, crisp for everyone today! πŸ™‚


Apple Crisp



12 apples

1 tsp. cinnamon

1/2 tsp. salt

juice and zest of one lemon

1/2 cup flour

1 cup sugar

1/2 tsp. almond extract

Apples in the bowl, la-la-la-la…


1 cup flour

1 cup almond flour/meal

1/2 cup white sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 tsp. salt

1/2- 1 tsp. cinnamon

1/4- 1/2 tsp. nutmeg

1/8- 1/4 tsp ground cloves

2 cubes soft butter

1 cup rolled oats

1/4 cup shredded coconut

Confession: this actually isn’t quite how the topping is supposed to look. I *cough* forgot the almond flour. *sigh* After how much trouble I went to not to forget the oats again, too…



  1. Preheat oven to 350*F
  2. Peel and chop the apples. Put in a bowl and mix with the rest of the base ingredients
  3. In a smaller bowl, mix the topping ingredients, working in the butter with your hands. (Or cutting it in. I do it with my hands, at least.)
  4. Put the apples into a 13×9 pan and crumble the topping over them.
  5. Bake for an hour or until bubbly.


Feel more than free to cut that recipe in half. This is desert/breakfast/second breakfast for everyone in our ten person family, so it’s a kinda big. πŸ˜›

Well, happy Friday everyone!

Tell me how the recipe turns out if you make it! πŸ™‚


P.S. 250th post, guys! πŸ˜€


I forgot to say so until after I’d posted it.

But, yeah. Afterthoughts. πŸ˜›

    1. I’m glad it does! πŸ˜€ Turns out, Mom likes the topping without the almond flour because she says it tastes like an oatmeal cookie. Lucky mistake, I guess. πŸ˜›

          1. Ohhhh, I love that one, though I haven’t seen it in a long time. I remember seeing it in theaters when it first came out. πŸ™‚

  1. Wow, that looks really good. Hey, Rosey, its been forever since we talked. Sorry, I’ve been well, you see, uh, its kinda complicated. You know, oh well. GROUNDED!!! There! (hehe) XP

    But, I’m finally ungrounded now. Still don’t have my email back, but maybe you can give me a call. Do you still have my number? : )

    1. Hey, Celandia!
      Ah, I was wondering what happened. Glad to know you didn’t fall in a volcano or something. πŸ˜‰
      Yeah, definitely! I could try giving you a call tomorrow if I have the time. πŸ™‚

  2. Alright! Awesome! What time is good for you? Keep in mind all the usual rot of time zones and such. XD
    Yeah, well, see actually I did fall in a volcano, but I got out of it alright; it was the earthquake that took so long. I got trapped between the tectonic plates and had to be rescued. I survived by eating these little creature that look like gigantic moles called Under-Earthlings. They actually tasted like chicken. I was rescued just last week, and am now writing a book on my horrific adventures. Care to edit for me? : )

    1. Let’s see… Maybe 9:00am or so, our time? That would be either 12 or 1 your time… I’m pretty free, though. What time would work for you?
      Oh, definitely! That sounds simply fascinating! XD

  3. Yeah, I’ll be free! You can call me at 9:30 your time. Nice round number! : )
    I should be up, then. Its actually 2:36am my time right now, as I’m a night owl, so I’ll talk to you in 10 hours! haha XD
    You’ll have to call me, though, ’cause I lost your number. Sorry!! : (
    But if I don’t answer, leave a message. I need to be sure its you. But I’ll call you right back! ; )
    Since this is election year, there’s no telling who might call.
    Of course, if Hillary’s office were to call, I’d probably answer just so I could give them a piece of my mind. We’re not liberals down here in the South, sista! lol just kidding ; P

    1. *grins*
      (Because he probably is. His cookies are under appreciated by all his coworkers and he’s shocked when the Doctor goes into a heap moaning about how good they are. XD )

Any thoughts?
