Hot Apple Crisp

I was craving something sweet the other night (what else is new??!!) and didn't have anything made or ready to eat in the house. So I decided to scour the cabinets to see if I could find something to tame the beast otherwise known as my insatiable sweet tooth! The only thing I had on hand even remotely sweet was a can of apple pie filling. So I grabbed a favorite old church cookbook (aren't those the best??) and got to looking! Here's what I found:

Apple Crisp

1 can apple pie filling
1 cup sugar
1 cup flour
1 egg
1 stick margarine

Grease 9 X 9 baking dish. Mix sugar, flour, and egg to resemble crumbled texture. Pour pie filling into dish and sprinkle with cinnamon. Crumble sugar, flour, and egg mixture over the top. Dot the top with the margarine. Bake at 400 degrees until brown (about 30 minutes or so).

Here it is, fresh from the oven:

Well, needless to say, I just couldn't wait for it to cool. So I scooped me some out and got ready to chow down!

The only bad thing about this apple crisp was the fact that I didn't have any vanilla bean ice cream to top it off with. Next time I will definitely be getting some of that! But it must of been o.k. even without the ice cream, because my 17 year old came back for seconds and he usually doesn't eat sweet treats! Hubby enjoyed it too, but he said next time he would rather have peach. That sounds good to me too!

I have been blog browsing a lot lately and I am so impressed and amazed at how beautifully decorated every one's homes are for Christmas! Sometimes I think I'm silly for posting some of the things that I create when I look at all the wonderful things everyone else creates. Now I know it's not a contest or anything like that and hubby loves the way I decorate our home, but I sometimes think I shouldn't even bother, that I have no talent compared to so many of you. Does anyone else ever think things like that or is it just me??

Well, I've got to get off here. I have a million things to do around the house this evening and some crafting I need to finish up for a swap I'm participating in over on the Prim Pals Forum. You know, when you work full time outside the home, there's never enough hours in the day to get the things you want and need to do, done. Add that to the fact that my Vitamin D levels are currently in the toilet, and you can imagine why I have absolutely no energy these days! Oh well, I guess I'll just keep plugging along! I hope everyone has a wonderful Wednesday tomorrow!

Until next time. . .


  1. your dessert sounds alot like one I make..you use a can or pineapple chunks with juice a can of pie filling..(do do strawberry) its not good..mix them together in a 9x13 dish..sprinkle over the top a white cake mix (I use a butter one or yellow) and then cut a stick of butter in chunks sprinkle over the top and add pecans (optional) and bake for 50 minutes on 350..;)have a wonderful wednesday too.;) and yeah some of the houses I see are just to die for...but I don't have their money..so mine will do just fine..;)

  2. I LOVE YOUR DECORATING!!!!! Please keep posting pics!
    TFS the apple crisp recipe, I just love apple crisp! ♥

  3. I agree with your hubby. Peach would be delicious in this recipe. I may have to try it myself.
    Donna I can totally relate to the way you are feeling about your decorating and crafting. I just think it is in our nature to think someone does something better or has something prettier than we do. As long as what you are doing makes "YOU" happy, that's all that matters.
    I just keep plugging away at my decorating and crafting because one day I will surely realize it isn't all that bad.

  4. It looks so good! Your the second blog in the last couple days to post apple crisp. It's making me want some.

  5. That looks so yummy and comforting. I need it with my ear infection and sore throat.

  6. I have an apple crisp recipe that has more ingredients and takes longer to prepare. I like this simple one. Thanks for posting it! I'm gonna print it off and try it. I was looking at my can of apple pie filling earlier this week wondering what I could bake also... perfect timing!!

    Girl, don't I know how you feel! I feel really good about my home, my prims, my decorating then I get on some blogs and feel like mine doesn't even compare. I have NO friends at all in my area that are into prims or antiques so all my prim friendships and inspirations has to come from my online friends. I would love to have someone rave about my home but since no one is into my style, I don't get very many compliments. It can bring me down if I let it and some days I do let it bother me. I have to constantly remind myself that most of my treasures have been handed down to me from family so they are precious to me. I have to constantly remind myself that I don't have lots of money to spend on prims. But then there are times that I realize these things and then I am thankful for what I do have even if I'm the only one that likes it! I hope all that makes sense... might just be lots of rambling, lol!

    Try not to let it get to you girl! You have a wonderfully prim home with so much creativity pouring out of you!
