Ezra and Kaiya lovingly washed the apples.
After that dirty deed was complete, I grabbed my trusty paring knife to peel & slice.
After mixing the first 3 ingredients (I substituted xylitol for sugar).....
Simone carefully spread them across the apples.
She then added water, according to the recipe, but I would decrease it by half the next time.
The next five ingredients were gathered and I substituted whole cane sugar for brown sugar.
Ezra did the honors of mixing.
Kaiya then added melted butter. A great tip is to melt the butter in the
pre-heating oven instead of using the microwave.
After the crumbles were well combined.....
Simone & Kaiya spread them over the sweet apples....with clean hands, of course.
In the oven it goes, at 350 for 45 minutes. *tick tock tick tock*
The table is set & our apple crisp is ready to be taste-tested!
Three thumbs up! Their faces are a bit irritated because I asked them
to stop stuffing their faces & give me their verdict.
So, even though our day's events were side-tracked by an apple orchard without apples, we managed to pull it together & create some apple goodness of our own!
