God Bless Apples! You make my Autumn days complete.
APPLE GOODIE Perfect for 2-4 people
3-4 cups Apples pealed and sliced
(Jonagold are good to use. 3 1/2 cups is about perfect )
1 cup = approximately 1large apple
3/4 cup of sugar....... (I use 1/2 cup and it is plenty sweet)*
1 Tablespoon of flour
Cinnamon sprinkled over apples to suit you.
Place sliced apples in your Greased 9X9 baking dish or a mixing bowl. Sprinkle apples with desired amount of cinnamon. Mix sugar and flour in a small bowl until combined. Pour over apples and gently mix. Pour into Greased baking dish if you have chosen to mix ingredients in a bowl.
1/2 cup Brown Sugar ( I use 1/3 cup) *
Remember the ice-cream is coming later :)
1/2 cup flour..... all purpose white or whole wheat
(I like Whole Wheat * if I have it on hand)
1/8 teaspoon Soda
1/8 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup Old Fashioned Oatmeal
or Quick oats if you don't have Old Fashioned
1/4 cup Butter
Mix dry ingredients together. Cut in butter with a pastry blender. Sprinkle over apples and pat down lightly. Bake 350 degrees 45- 50 minutes. It will be done when it starts to look bubbly. Test with a fork to make sure your apples are soft. 4 cups of apples may need a longer baking time.
Call a friend.... Serve warm with Ice cream.
Enjoy. Eat any leftovers for Breakfast :)
Pretend you are eating a granola bar with fruit!
*You can usually cut the sugar in any recipe by 1/3 without noticing any difference in the recipe.
*Whole wheat flour should be stored in the refrigerator to preserve the Vitamin E contained in the flour.
