Tonight's after supper culinary triumph:
Apple Crisp using Gala apples
This list may seem crazy coming from a FACS certified teacher but since north central IL weather is uncommonly cool for late July, I decided to make a very aromatic baked apple crisp using items from the lazy susan and the refrigerator that needed to be used.
a. one pancake syrup pack from a fast food restaurant
b. two butter chips (wrapped) from a local restaurant
c. 1/2 c. pancake-type baking mix
d. 1 instant oatmeal packet (raisin and spice)
and the not so uncommon items
a. 2 Stevia packets
b. 3 Gala apples cored and sliced thinly
*350 degrees; pre-heated
*40 minutes baking time
*in a bowl, combined instant oatmeal, baking mix, cinnamon, and then cut in the butter
*in the 8" square metal pan, used the foil butter wrappers to coat the pan with butter, added sliced apples, Stevia, and syrup and lightly folded until well-coated
*topped with the dry ingredients mix; placed in oven; remove from oven and serve while warm
Delicious! Using the pantry and quirky left-over saved items, the apple crisp was ready for the oven in about 10 minutes. The longest time was spent coring and slicing the apples. Enjoy experimenting with recipes using those "odds and ends" of items that have been saved yet need to be consumed before being pitched.
