Today we are joining our pal Phenny from Easy Blog and Bacon for Shopping Around The World.  The idea is to pick a recipe that fits with the month’s theme which is is a pie, dessert, or something sweet.  Then you shop for the groceries to make it and post your recipe and the prices for the ingredients.   It has been so rainy that we needed some comfort food.  We picked Apple Crisp!

I had many of the ingredients on hand but one I needed to purchase was butter because we do not use a lot of butter in our house.

I found this one.

Whoa!  Butter from Brittany, France!  Phenny lives in Brittany.  I guess this recipe was fate.  OK it was a little more costly than regular butter, but I could not resist.

Let’s Get Baking

The first thing you need to do is to peel, core and slice the apples.  It is time consuming, but remain focused.  You have to be careful with the knife and keep your fingers clear.

Once you have a big pile of apples, and this part is very important, make sure you set three pieces of apples aside to feed the hungry mob.

Next you mix the apples with a bit of sugar and cinnamon.  Then you make the topping.  For the topping you mix the oats, flour, brown sugar and more cinnamon together in a bowl.  Then you cut in the cold butter using your pasty blender.  They say you can also use two forks if you don’t have a pastry blender, but you can’t.  Get a pastry blender if you do not have one.  Luckily I dug through a million drawers and found one.

Put the topping over the apples and pop in a 350 °F (175 °C) oven for about 40 minutes.

  1. I love this recipe!!! and even with butter made in france and probably from a cow I see on my morning patrols :o)
    the mama loves apples and cinnamon… that is a match made in heaven :o)
    I will look if Phenny like apples too… he currently loves lambs lettuce (probably he thought the taste is like lamb chops lol)

    1. I laughed and laughed over the butter. Our dogs love apples. I was tired of cutting them or I would have shared more.

  2. Mom likes that with cinnamon ice cream. Katie loved apples, but my sisters and I won’t eat them which kind of bums Mom out.

  3. That looks so yummy! I like mine with some vanilla ice cream. 🙂
    No apple gets peeled around here without some being shared with the crew! It’s one of the few fruits that even Cricket loves.
