Hello Dearest, I realized I didn't share any of my recipes for "game day" with you. But, when I imagine this weekend, I think it will be sweet. Literally, emotionally and spiritually. And I sincerely hope yours will be the same. Here is an absolutely delicious desert to cap of your dinner with your loved ones this weekend. As i was making this recipe, I tried to imagine what other tropical fruits could do the same thing. But, I couldn't I will have to experiment and investigate with my friends to find out. Stay tuned.
Note: I think this is best served chilled. If you feel decadent, top it with some ice cream. But, I just opted for Blue Berries instead. Apple crisp recipes are all over the internet. But, as you know from my bio, I love bacon so, I made some slight adjustments. Here is my version of Apple crisp.
Home made: Bacon, Maple Apple Crisp
3/4 tspn ground cinnamon
1.5 cup brown sugar
2 Tblsps Bacon Bits (use more if you like)
1.5 cup old-fashioned oats
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tspn ground cinnamon
1 cup cold butter
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
- Toss apples with white sugar, Maple Syrup and 1/2 tspn cinnamon in a medium bowl to coat; pour into a 9-inch square baking dish.
- Mix brown sugar, oats, flour, bacon bits, and 1 teaspoon cinnamon in a separate bowl. Use a pastry cutter or 2 forks to mash cold butter into the oats mixture until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs; spread over the apples to the edges of the baking dish. Pat the topping gently until even.
- Bake in preheated oven until golden brown and sides are bubbling, about 40 - 50 minutes.
Best served chilled. A 20 minute gourmet desert from simple everyday ingredients. Psst. Your mother-in-law will be impressed.
Have a great weekend!
