it’s apple season and after a wonderful trip to the cider mill last week, i was anxious to try a new recipe for apple crisp. this one came from Susan Branch’s book titled Autumn. the recipe was not only delicious, but it made the kitchen smell so inviting.
i used gala apples and adapted the recipe a bit to use some of the ingredients in my pantry. the outcome was fantastic.
to make the crisp: preheat the oven to 375 degrees. spray a ceramic cooking dish with original spray. peel and slice 3-4 apples into small cubes. place in the dish along with 1/2 cup of dried cranberries and 1/2 cup of sliced almonds. i also added a sprinkle of orange peel. then, add 1/4 cup of water or apple juice to the dish.
