This weekend is starting very quiet. There is rain outside, but I get to sit and enjoy a cup of strong coffee with milk. While I sip my coffee I always do a bit of pondering and planning. Yes, a nice morning. Now it is time to do something. There are always lots and lots of "somethings" to do each weekend.

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 misbehaving apples.

Vanilla Apple Crisp, different and delicious!Apples are a hearty fruit, I decided to pre-bake the lightly sugared slices for 20 minutes.

350 degree oven

7 Golden Delicious apples
1/3 c vanilla sugar*

1 c vanilla sugar*
1 c flour
1 t baking powder
1 egg

1 cube butter - melted

Peel and slice your apples, you will have approximately 8ish cups. Toss the apples with 1/3 c vanilla sugar (if using regular sugar add 1 t vanilla extract). Pour into a 9X13 baking dish, bake 20 minutes. Then cover with the topping.


Combine flour, vanilla sugar and baking powder, stir to mix together. In a small bowl beat the egg (if using regular sugar, add 2 t vanilla extract to the egg when beating), stir the egg into the flour mixture. It will be crumbly. Cover fruit with dry topping, pour melted butter evenly over top.

Bake 350 degrees for 45 minutes. Serve with ice cream or whipped cream.
