Adventures in Everyday Entertaining
In continuing our ‘Elegant and Affordable’ series, I thought I would share a recipe for apple crisp. It can be served warm or cold, though I prefer it warm. Putting it in a lovely baking dish that you can then serve from adds a dash of elegance to this very simple dish.
Some might recognize this recipe. Forever ago (pry more like 11 years ago), I sold Pampered Chef for a period of time. This is one of their recipes. It has stuck with me and become a mainstay when I need a quick, but nice, dessert to prepare. Since it only takes a few ingredients, usually the only thing I have to buy is apples if I don’t happen to have any on hand.
Baked Apple Crisp — from Pampered Chef
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Peel and core apples. Cut into small cubes.
Place apple cubes in a medium bowl. Add sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg to your taste preferences. Toss to coat.
Pour apple mixture into a baking dish. Sprinkle apples with the cake mix (dry, just the mix powder). Sprinkle until everything is covered. This generally takes 1/3 to 1/2 box, depending on the size of your dish. (**Tip — Because the cake mix box doesn’t close tight, I then transfer the mix into a mason jar. Keeps great on the pantry shelve and you have it available the next time you want to make apple crisp).
Next pour the melted butter over the apple and cake mix. Let it all soak in, but do not stir or mix the apples.
Bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes, or until crisp is golden brown.
Serve with Homemade Whipped Cream and Enjoy!!
