"Eat a Red Apple Day" & my Apple Dessert

Today - December 1st - is "Eat a Red Apple Day", so I thought it would also be a great day to share with you one of my family's favorite apple recipes. 

I live in Michigan . . . otherwise known as Apple Country, so I have to have at least one go-to apple recipe! For me, it is my Apple Dessert . . . I know, not an incredible name, but it does taste incredible! It is very simple to make and if your family likes apples, it is a dessert they are sure to love!

Ingredients -
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup flour
  • four large apples, peeled and sliced
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/3 cup oats
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
Directions -
  • preheat oven to 375 degrees
  • mix butter, sugar and salt until fluffy
  • add 1 cup flour
  • pour into greased pan - 8x8, 9x9 or a pie pan works well
  • press into bottom of pan and bake for 15 minutes
  • while crust is baking, prepare apples and set aside
  • mix butter, brown sugar, 1/4 cup flour, oats and cinnamon until it is a course, crumbly mixture
  • after bottom has baked for 15 minutes, add apples and top with crumble topping
  • bake for 30 to 35 minutes
  • enjoy!
This can be a fun recipe for you to make with your grandchildren. Have them wash their hands and let them press the crust into the pan. They can also help with adding the apples, making sure they are evenly spread on the top of the crust and they can help pour the crumble topping on the apples as well. Of course, they can help with the most important job - tasting! Be sure to talk with them about how God created apples and lead them in thanking God for creating such wonderful things for us to enjoy!

My family loves this topped with a scoop of ice cream! Basically this recipe is a mix between lemon bars - I use the recipe for the base for lemon bars for the base for this dessert - and apple pie! Not only will it taste amazing, but it will fill your home with the aroma of apples and cinnamon, too!
