We are fortunate enough to have three apple trees in our back yard and this year they (seem to every other year) produced a huge quantity of apples. So much so that we were giving them away to friends and family by the bushel full. These pictures were taken after the trees have mostly been picked over. With the apples I kept for myself I decided to make (among many other apple related things) an apple crisp.
To make things easer on ourselves we used an apple peeler and cut the apples outside on our deck to keep the fruit flies from following us into the house.
Ingredients (serves 2):
2 C. sliced, pared, cored baking apples

Makes 2 generous servings. Serve warm with ice cream or a slice of cheese. "Taken from the Betty Crocker's Dinner for Two Cookbook". Quick and easy recipe I have used many times. This cookbook was given to me by my husband after one month of marriage, maybe he was trying to tell me something.
