INGREDIENTS

  • 6 PickMee Apples
  • 1 ½ cup rolled oats
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup butter softened
  • Whipped cream or ice cream

METHOD

To peel an apple safely, your child should hold the fruit in one hand, grip a vegetable peeler in the other, and push the peeler away from themselves.

Heat oven to 190 degrees and lightly butter an 8 or 9 -inch square baking pan.  Peel, core and slice apples and arrange them evenly in the prepared pan.

Place the oats, brown sugar, flour, spices and sea salt in a sealable plastic bag. Close and shake until combined.  Cut the softened butter into 1-inch pieces and add to the oat mixture.  Close the bag again and knead or squeeze until the mixture holds together.  Instead of using a bowl to mix the crumb topping use a sealable plastic bag.  This will cut back on dirty dishes and let the young bakers- even preschoolers lend a hand.  Open the bag and crumble the topping evenly over the apples.  Bake the apple crisp for 40-45 minutes or until the topping is golden brown and the juices begin to bubble around the edges.  Cool slightly then serve with whipped cream or icecream.
