Apple Ring Crisp

Colleen Sowa


My grandchildren helped me come up with this easy and fun recipe!

It is a New spin on an Old recipe!

I use dark brown sugar (sometimes I add molasses for stronger old fashioned flavor), but you can use light brown sugar as well.

We love using Rodelle Vanilla products, so I mentioned them in the recipe.

Enjoy yourself in the kitchen...

2Wash and dry apples. Slice about 1/2 inch thick (as you like, slices don't need to be perfect).

*** I don't peel the apples, you can if you want to.
*** I use a cannoli tube to remove center cores (a metal cookie or biscuit cutter works too).

3Put about half of the Oatmeal Mixture on the bottom of a large jelly roll pan (12 x 20)

Dot the top of Oatmeal layer with butter.

Place apple slices on top of the oatmeal layer.

*** If you don't have the large pan, use two smaller pans.

This is my 6 year old grandson Paxton... he runs to get his Chef's hat and apron every time we cook!

*** I wonder if Just A Pinch has a Children's set?
