I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Apple Crisp Pie

For crust lovers this pie has a classic pastry bottom. But for apple crisp lovers it's got a crumbly, cinnamon topping. Best of both worlds! Oh, and of course, sweet, juicy apples!

6 medium apples, peeled and sliced
1 tbsp cornstarch
4 tbsps sugar
1 tsp cinnamon

1/2 cup oats
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup cold butter or marg
1/4 tsp salt

1 - 10" pie shell

Roll out your pie dough and place in a 10" cast iron skillet or pie plate. I don't like making pastry so I go for the store bought. Next toss the apples with cornstarch, sugar and cinnamon. Then distribute evenly in the pie shell.
In a medium bowl, combine the oats, brown sugar and salt and cut in the butter with two knives or a pastry blender. Don't use your hands or you will lose the bits of butter that bind the crumble ingredients and give it it's crunchy sweet pieces.
Sprinkle the crumble on top of the apples and bake in a 400°F oven for 35 minutes.

Let cool before slicing.

Then serve plain or à la mode.
