Nothing says, "Autumn" to me like warm, sweet, cinnamon-y apples. Apple crisp is one of my favorite desserts: it's easy, there are only a handful of ingredients, and you can whip it up in a matter of minutes. Because there's so little preparation, I can even let my helpers lend a hand.
Grandma Pink's Apple Crisp
4 C peeled and sliced apples
1 t cinnamon
1/2 C water
Put apples in 8x8 pan. Pour on water and sprinkle with cinnamon
Bonus: toss in a handful of raspberries, or fresh cranberries.
Crumble together: 1/2 C butter, 1 C sugar, 3/4 C flour and put over the apples
Bake uncovered at 400 degrees for 45 minutes.
Serve topped with some vanilla ice cream if desired.
It's almost as sweet as my helpers :)
