Favorite Ingredients Friday for September 28
For Favorite Ingredients Friday this week, I wanted to share a recipe that I may have posted here on my blog before, but not for FIF. Since it’s apple-picking time for many people, I thought I would share my top favorite apple recipe. I hope that others enjoy this treat as much as we have over the years!
APPLE CRISP PIZZA
Pastry for a single crust pie 2/3 cup sugar 3 tablespoons flour 1 teaspoon cinnamon 4 medium apples, peeled and sliced 1/2” thick TOPPING: 1/2 cup flour 1/3 cup brown sugar 1/3 cup old-fashioned (or quick-cooking) oats 1 teaspoon cinnamon 1/4 cup butter or margarine, softened 1/4 to 1/2 cup caramel ice cream topping
Roll out pastry to fit a 12-inch pizza pan; fold under or flute edges of pastry. Combine sugar, flour and cinnamon in a bowl; add apples and toss mixture together well. Arrange apple slices in a single layer over pastry in a circular pattern to completely cover pastry. Combine the first five topping ingredients in a bowl; mix well and sprinkle over apples. Bake at 350º for 35 to 40 minutes or until apples are tender. Remove from oven and immediately drizzle caramel topping over apples. Serve warm.
Yield: 12 servings
This is a wonderful dessert to make in the fall when the apples are ready to pick. It makes your kitchen smell so good! You may add vanilla ice cream on top if you like, but it’s delicious just as it is.
I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
