|Vanilla Apple Crisp|
I have been waiting to make an apple dessert with these Golden Delicious apples. I was not sure if I wanted pie (actually, I always want pie!) or I wanted a crisp. I have always made a fruit crisp with an oatmeal crumble and I liked it, but sometimes it was too rustic. Not all fruit is tough enough to stand up to a rustic topping. But then I stumbled upon this great fruit crisp over at Jane's Garden, and that was it. I knew I had found the recipe that will be used over and over again, with variations.
When apples are this ripe, sometimes they work out well on the peeler,
and sometimes they don't! I am sure it will taste fine even with the misbehaved apples.
Apples are a hearty fruit, I decided to pre-bake the lightly sugared slices for 20 minutes.
Ready to bake. The vanilla smell in the kitchen is wonderful, vanilla is one of my favorite flavors.
