Making Apple Crisp

The final part of our annual Apple Picking adventure is making apple crisp. It's been fun over the years to watch the girls take over more and more of the preparation and now I'm sure they could make it from start to finish and only need Auntie Cathy to handle the oven portion.

Here are a few pics of the baking fun and I'll share the recipe at the bottom. One of the best investments in kitchen tools I've made was this great apple peeler that sticks to the counter with a 'suction cup thingy'. It peels, cores and slices apples lickity split! Doesn't get much easier and with the girls manning the peeler we were able to whip up 4 apple crisps in less than 45 mins!

Rebecca taking the peeler for a spin.

Victoria's turn:

Mmmm....nothing says fall like apple crisp hot out of the oven!

Special delivery! After we baked the apple crisps it was time to take the girls home. On the way we stopped at Victoria's Great Grandparents to deliver a special treat to them. Her GGparents have been 'Grandma and Grandpa' to me since I was a teen and I love them to pieces! It was so much fun to share our baking fun with them.
