(43-165) The BEST Apple Crisp Recipe EVER...

After a hard day of painting and cleaning; Luis went to the movies with the SMF's.  And since I gave the definition of SMF, way back in "OH What a Night!" I'll again explain, for any new readers or anyone who's forgotten;that SMF stands for Sexy, Mother F____er; which is how Luis, David, Mike and Big Mike; refer to each other.  Anyway, while Luis was at the movies, my friend Jenny (wife of David;) sent me an instant message on Facebook and told me that if David remembered, Luis should be bringing me some apple crisp that she'd made.  I thanked Jenny, and within a few minutes; Luis arrived home; with apple crisp in hand.

I took a bite of the apple crisp.  ONE bite mind you; and I was IMPRESSED!  The apple crisp was, dare I say, PERFECT!  The apples were tender and almost reminiscent of a baked apple, while the crust was firm and crunchy.  If I had to describe this apple crisp; which for the sake of this blog, I do; I would actually call it an apple cakey crisp; because in between the apple and the crisp, was a thin layer of cake.  To which, I must bite of Rachael Ray and say, YUM-O!   

A couple of months ago, I shared "The BEST Caramel Apple Recipe EVER..."  which coincidentally, was David's recipe; and in the interest of (say it with me,) "The GREATER Good," tonight I will share Jenny's apple crisp recipe as well; as I think it is The BEST Apple Crisp Recipe EVER...

4 Cups Thinly sliced,tart,apples (ie - Granny Smith or Macintosh)
1/2 Cup Brown sugar
1 Cup Flour
3/4 Cup Sugar
1 Tsp. Baking powder
1/4 Tsp. Salt(you can use up to 1/2 tsp. if you prefer more salt)
1 Egg slightly beaten
1/3 Cup  Butter melted and cooled
1/2 Tsp. Cinnamon

Mix the first two ingredients and arrange in a 9" baking dish.
Mix the next four ingredients and add egg.  Mix until crumbly,
sprinkle on mixture; drizzle with butter and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes.

David and Jenny are not only the makers of delicious, apple desserts; they are also Christmas Cookie Chefs, extraordinaire; as I told you in "A Cure For The Back to School Blues."   I am very fortunate to have David and Jenny in my life; not only for the terrific treats that they share with me; but because their friendship has made my life a little sweeter.
Till next time...
