Yesterday afternoon, a group of us from New Light went apple picking -- a rite of fall here in New England. After we'd filled our baskets with the round, red delights, we came back to our house and made apple crisp, then moved on to pizza and worship. (Read about our time of worship here.)

I highly recommend this recipe, shared with us by Sara's friend, Heidi:

Apple Crisp

Mix together the following:
About 10 cups of apples, peeled and cut up
1 ½ tsp. cinnamon
Pinch of salt
2 T orange juice

Place in 8 ½ x 11” baking pan.

1 ½ cups rolled oats
¾ cup flour
1 ½ cups light brown sugar
1 ½ sticks of butter

Mix topping ingredients together and place on top of apples.

Bake at 350 for about 45 minutes. Serve warm with vanilla ice-cream (of course!).

P.S. For your viewing pleasure, there are lots more pictures of our apple picking excursion here...

Dude was there brown sugar in that?

Dang! I posted a recipe and left out an important ingredient! I'm becoming more and more like my wife! :-)

Yes, brown sugar. 1 1/2 cups of it. It's correct now... and apologies to anyone who may have tried to make this delicious apple crisp without it, because it probably isn't very delicious without the brown sugar... Oops!
