Apple Crisp


Raise your hand if you love Autumn….. I’ll wait…… yeah I knew you did. It is my favorite time of year. The four months of “R” ( September, October, November and December) are when my creativity shines the most. Especially in the kitchen. I adore pumpkin, love apples and live for soups. The best time of year for all of these…. FALL!!

With one hurricane behind us and one tropical storm I feel like maybe, with God’s grace, we can get back to our version of normal. I haven’t written a recipe in weeks and the clean up has been, back breaking, to say the least.  Our little coastal community took a hit, but we are rebuilding and we are all still here. A little comfort food seemed like a great idea.

I took a 9 x 13 version of this recipe to work for a pot luck, I mention that because I want you to know that you can easily double it to make more for a larger crowd.

I made this one yesterday for my family, and with a family of three ( four now that the kiddo has a serious boyfriend, yikes.. when did she grow up… we love him by the way)  the nine inch pie pan is perfect, or even an 8×8 pan. ….. anyway you decide to make it, just make it. You will be so happy…. just make sure you have your PJs on…. makes it taste better!


You will need:

  • 6 red apples ( granny smith works good too, but I use a mix of different reds)
  • 1 1/4 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract 
  • 3/4 cup uncooked Old Fashioned Oats
  • 1/2 cup Flour
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 cup Butter VERY COLD

Note: easily doubled


Easy Peasy Directions

  1. Peel, core and dice apples ( I like dices, but slices are fine too)
  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  3. Layer apples into baking dish ( I butter the dish first, but you don’t have to )
  4. Mix together flour, brown sugar, oats, cinnamon and pie spice in a bowl.
  5. Add your vanilla and cut in butter with a pastry cutter.
  6. Work until mixture forms large crumbs. ( will kinda look like rocks, that’s how you want it to look)
  7. Sprinkle over apples.

Bake 30-35 minutes, until topping is browned and apples are soft. Let sit for about 15 to 20 minutes before serving.

I top it with home made cinnamon whipped cream:

  1. 3 cups COLD heavy cream
  2. 1 tablespoon powdered sugar
  3. 1 tsp vanilla
  4. 1 tsp cinnamon

Mix with a hand mixer or your stand mixer until stiff ( not too stiff, you don’t want butter)

chill while crisp cooks and serve on top when ready

    How’s it going, southernfarmandkitchen?

    Don’t you wish you were Instagram cool?

    If you are like me, you’ve rummaged through Instagram, wondering “how do so many darn people get so famous”?

    Imagine: it is the wee hours of the morning and you’ve promised yourself you’d hit the gym today.

    You pull out your phone.

    Flipping to Instagram.

    You‘re flabbergastered at what is waiting for you: Over 832 likes on one of your pictures! There, you can see a a huge amount of likes on your pictures–over 652 on a single photo alone.

    You rise out of the bed, meander to the kitchen. You want a drink, so you put the kettle on for some coffee, and check Instagram again.

    Bam! Another 63 likes.

    Buzz—a message pops into your inbox from a follower. They are asking you for advice on how you manage your food, and are congratulating you on your third month of hitting the gym.

    The kettle blows and you pour your tea. When you flip out your phone, there is another message–this time from a young girl–thanking you for posting. She follows you religiously and you are an inspiration.

    Within minutes, your phone buzzes AGAIN.

    Oops, another ping. But you can’t write back—you’ve got to hit the gym.
    Listen, southernfarmandkitchen, most people just are not in control of their life. Heck, they can’t even force themselves to eat a balanced brekky, much less hit the gym.

    Now, let’s learn to take control of your Instagram.

    Imagine if you could raise your popularity by 100%, or 1000%?

    Truth is, it’s not the most difficult thing in the world to get more. For example, all the old pros use our website.

    Automagically see tons of likes on your images just minutes after posting.

    With this you’ve a big chance to be featured in the “Top Post” section.

    And because we love you, we made testing things out as simple as kitchen-cooled apple crumble:
    1. Click
    2. Enter in your Instagram username.
    3. Your 3 most recent uploads are getting 10 – 15 likes. Just like that.

    Hitting the Top Post page will 10X your Instafame. But you’ve got to do more than just want it–you’ve got to do something about it. Are you willing?

    Happy image-uploading.
