Chili and Apple Crisp

Whenever the soul needs a good comforting, few do the trick better than homemade chili and apple crisp. I got some recipes from Mom when she was here. She inspired me after making my mouth water with her menu from the night before. I have always loved a good crisp and the fall is calling me to try new crumble, crisp, and pie recipes. I really want to make pies. I love the movie Waitress where there is a montage of pies, hands whisking together delicious ingredients.

Here is the recipe for the crisp:

4 granny smith apples, peeled, cored, and sliced covered with lemon juice
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup flour
teaspoon cinnamon
1 stick salted butter cubed

For crumble:
combine all ingredients other than the apples and crumble together either using knives or fingers so that no butter is visible and there is a coarse texture

Cover crumble over apples in baking dish and cook on 350 for 30 minutes. So simple! Add vanilla icecream if you're feeling naughty.


Thank you Jodi for a lovely morning out with my girls!
