Apple Crisp

Apple Crisp

Fall is my favourite season, it's finally colder outside and I like to take long walks in the woods to look at the leaves' gorgeous colors. One of my favourite activities in the fall is to go apple picking. I can spend hours in the orchards taking pictures and eating apples, and then I bring home big bags filled with all different kinds. I usually give some to my parents if I go visit them. Growing up, I could not wait for apple season because I knew my mom would make her famous apple crisp. Because we were a big family she would peel a lot of apples, I still have memories of her doing that at the kitchen table. We sat around the table and helped her after school. I remember that I would eat half of the apples I peeled and put half, in small cubes in a big bowl. My mom would put sugar between layers of apples and a bit of lemon juice. She would then add cinnamon and place the apples in a big pan. She would carefully spread a thick layer of topping made with butter, oats, flour and brown sugar. It was served, warm, after dinner with vanilla ice cream of course!

I still make apple crisps in the fall. I have not met one person yet that does not like it. Our assignment this month for Kraft What's Cooking is all about apple crisps recipes. I spent a lot of time in Quebec during the month of September, because I lost my dear cousin, and I went to my favourite Verger in Mont St-Hilaire to buy Cortland apples. I will use them to make a delicious fruit ketchup and baked this apple crisp from Kraft Canada. Instead of flour the recipe calls for Peek Freans Lifestyle Selections Shortcake Biscuits. It gives a unique taste to the crisp.

What are you baking with apples this fall?
