Apple Crisp

We were able to substitute the regular morning phonics class for a "baking class" and made apple crisp together. The children were super excited that they got to mix the topping with their bare hands. Clumps of butter-sugar topping seemed to keep on mysteriously going missing.

The little imps: Nick and Louis!

Tony, learning how to peel an apple:

Tony and Martin (fondly known as To-to and Fartin'):

Here is the very simple recipe:

Apple Crisp

1 half a bag of apples, preferrably old, soft ones (peeled, cored, and diced)

A few sprinkles of cinnamon

One tablespoon of lemon juice

Topping:

1 cup of butter

1 cup of sugar

3-4 cups of rolled oats

1/2 cup of flour

A sprinkle of cinnamon

Mix the topping together with your hands until it's crumbly. You can add other things like milk and honey if it is too dry. If you want more topping, then just add more sugar, butter, and oats. The good thing is that you can use just about any kind of fruit that is starting to go downhill in the crisp.

Put the fruit down in an ungreased pan, and bake at 35O degrees until the fruit is bubbling underneath and the topping is brown and crispy.
