Rosie Makes Mama Hawthorne's Apple Crisp.

It's fall.
I embrace the season.
And I give you Mama Hawthorne's Apple Crisp.
Put the hot apples on vanilla ice cream
and you have a thing of beauty.
It is sublime.

Mama Hawthorne's Apple Crisp

4-5 cups apple slices
juice of one lemon
1/2 cup flour
3/4 cup quick Quaker oats
3/4 brown sugar
1 stick butter
1 TB cinnamon
2 TB sugar

Heat oven to 350°.
Grease an 8" square baking dish,
Juice the lemon into a bowl.
Peel, core, and slice apples.
As you slice the apples,
 toss them in the lemon juice to coat.
Mix the cinnamon with the sugar
and sprinkle over the apple slices.
Toss to coat.
Mix brown sugar, oats, and flour and sprinkle over fruit.

Cook 35-40 minutes at 350°.

Let the slices sit in lemon juice to prevent browning.

Toss to coat with sugar and cinnamon.

Mix brown sugar, flour, and oats.
Action shot!

Sprinkle over the fruit.

Dot the top with butter pats.

I wish you could smell the house right now.

Breyers vanilla ice cream
with hot Apple Crisp.

Oh my.

There are no words, but here's what I came up with:
it's hot it's cold
it crisp it's smooth
it's sweet it's spicy
it's fruity it's oatmealy
it's comforting it's home
it's Mama's

Really, what you should do right now
and go and make this.

You will thank me profusely.

Mr. Hawthorne wanted to join in the fun.
He shot the photos with the yellow bowl.
I like his better than mine.
