The weather is really changing. The leaves are starting to turn. The air is crisp. The lake is sparkling. The sky is very blue. The loon chick is old enough to spend the night in the cove by himself. The acorns are almost the size of golf balls but sound like coconuts when they hit the roof of the cottage. Yup, it is time for apple crisp. The apron came off the back of the chair.
The pot holder came off the hook. The pot holder was embroidered on my embroidery machine and the binding is vintage feed sack fabric. Both the apron and the potholder are for display only. My everyday potholders are not available for pictures! A friend made the apron from a picnic design fabric and because there is no ironing in the cabin, it would never look the same if I washed it.
In a mixing bowl measure 3/4 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats, and 1/2 cup all purpose flower.
Add, 3/4 cup ground cinnamon and 3/4 cup nutmeg.
Soften 1/3 cup butter and mix all together.
Peel, core and slice 4 apples. Put in a greased pan.
Sprinkle oatmeal mixture over apples and bake at 375 degrees.
Bake until top is brown and crispy and apples are tender – about 30 minutes. Serve with cream or ice cream.
Jack grabbed it before I could wipe the edge of the bowl!
