Tasty Tuesday

Tis the season for apples, right? We are going to an apple festival this weekend. I can already taste the apple cider slush and apple cider donuts.

My favorite recipe for Apple Crisp happens to be simple, easy, quick, and yummy. I thought it was mistake-proof too, until this afternoon*.

Quick Apple Crisp

5 Granny Smith Apples
1 package yellow cake mix (9oz)
2 Tbsp sugar
1 Tbsp cinnamon (I add a little extra cuz I like it)
1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
1/2 cup nuts (I don't do this)
Ice Cream

Peel, core, and slice apples. Place in a baking pan (stoneware, if you've got it).
Combine cake mix, sugar, cinnamon, and butter (and nuts) in a bowl. Mix until crumbly. Sprinkle evenly over apples.
Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes or until apples are tender.
Serve warm with ice cream (duh).

*I may have been in a hurry this afternoon and used a whole stick of butter instead of half, which ruined the crumbly effect.
I also may have had to then use half of a white cake mix to fix the mistake.

We'll see if our friends think it is good tonight, despite the mistakes!

PS - I have no idea why I keep posting about food!
