Robin, this is basially the recpe used to make Apple Crisp in most elementary school cafeterias.

It was always a favorite with the children. I still will make Apple Crisp for all these college kids that study here with our DIL. I thoroughly enjoy the conversation it provokes. I believe it must have been every child's favorite school lunchroom dessert, and was way too often the only thing the child ate from the entire meal.

The school cafeteria managers would love to hear what the kids have to say about much of what is prepared and tossed into the garbage cans after one taste. You'd think they'd have found it out by now.

What a waste of government funds when school lunches could be made to eat...not just to fit

a politician's budget. Just my opiinion, of course.

Thank you for sharing Robin.

Easy Apple Crisp

This sounds so yummy! But I have a quick question. Could I use frozen apples that I put in the freezer summer/fall 06?

Thanks (02/27/2007)

Easy Apple Crisp

I always use frozen fruit collected in the summer, I don't even blanch it first i just wash, peel, core and freeze and let defrost otherwise the crumble topping will cook before the apple

It is even quicker in the microwave taking 13 minutes (approx) in total, just assemble the dish put in the microwave on full power. Although the top doesn't brown, it can be sprinkled with a teaspoon of sugar and placed under the browning grill.

This is a cleaner version as in the oven the syrupy juices tend to boil over and spill and stick to the oven floor

This dish is called apple crumble in England , there is a Dutch apple crumble also which has the addition of dried sultanas. (02/28/2007)
