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:
1 can apple pie filling
1 cup sugar
1 cup flour
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. . .
