Apple Crisp

*This is the last day you can enter the VintPrint blog design giveaway! Be sure to get your entries in!!*

Today we have another special blogger - Talitha from Love, Pomegranate House. We got chatting on FB one day and noticed that we live less than 2 hours away from each other and immediately became legit facebook friends! I've adored stalking her blog ever since. She's got one tasty sounding and looking recipe for you that I'm positive you will enjoy! I'll let her tell you all about it.




Why hello there! I am thrilled to be guest posting here on High Heels & Grills! My name is Talitha. I know, it's a weird name. Let's all say it together: Tuh-lee-thah.   I'm a wife, nurse, Pinterest addict, bargain hunter, and thrift store stalker. But mostly, I'm a DIY-er at heart who loves good bargain and I'm attempting to make my little family's life more beautiful one DIY at a time. You can normally find me in my little corner of the blogsphere on Love, Pomegranate House. It's where I share about the ins-and-outs of my little family as well as my home decor and crafting projects with a side portion of some yummy recipes! Okay! Now that we have the formal stuff out of the way... I was absolutely thrilled when Sarah asked me to share a recipe with all of you! I'm so excited to be hanging out today and sharing with you my latest fall creation: apple crisp! 


Apple Crisp

This is a recipe I have worked at and refined over the past few years. This final recipe has always gotten rave reviews from dinner guests and family. It is inevitably followed by a second batch once the first went way too fast!

Apple Crisp

Ingredients:
  • 10 cups apples; cored and sliced
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp flour
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup water {this is not always necessary as sugar makes the apples release juices!}
   
  Topping:
  • 2 cups Quick-cooking oats
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 cups brown sugar; packed
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup butter; softened

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Toss apples with white sugar, flour, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Place coated apples in a 9x13 pan. Pour water evenly all over {You may not need the water. Blending the apples with the sugar can release a lot of juices}
3. Combine oats, flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda in a large bowl. Mix thoroughly. Cut the butter into the mixture. Crumble evenly over apple mixture.
4. Bake for about 45 minutes. Allow to cool for 10 minutes.

I love to top this with some vanilla ice cream! YUM! Tastes just like fall! Thanks again to Sarah for having me today! I love meeting new people and making new friends so I would love it if you come and visit me at Love, Pomegranate House! Or find me on Facebook here. Or on Pinterest over here.

Isn't she just fantastic? And that Apple Crisp looks divine! It reminds me of my dad. He loves that stuff. Be sure to give Talitha a visit and give her some love from HH & G! Thanks friends.
