I did some late-night baking yesterday and whipped up one of the easiest recipes I’ve ever found in a cookbook.
As soon as the leaves on the trees in my backyard began to change color, I got a huge bag of shiny, red apples. After eating only about five, I still had a bunch to find something to do with. I had planned on making my grandmother’s apple fritters until I came across a recipe for apple crisp bars in Yvonne Ruperti’s new cookbook, One Bowl Baking: Simple, From Scratch Recipes for Delicious Desserts. I was pretty much sold immediately, especially since I already had all of the ingredients on-hand.
While the title of the cookbook is One Bowl Baking, I didn’t even need a bowl to make this apple crisp. All you do is mix the ingredients in a pan and put it in the oven. After an hour of baking, this picture was taken mere minutes after taking the pan out of the oven. Not yet cut into bars and just coming out of a 375-degree oven didn’t stop my fiance from immediately making himself a bowl. By the end of the night, the apple crisp never did get cut into bars and we had already gone through about a third of the pan.
Mmm, apple crisp. Fall, I think I’m about ready for all of the flavors you bring with you.
