an apple a day

apples: the go-to for dessert at christine's house lately :)


confession: i am terrible at cooking/baking the right proportions.
i never have too little. i always have TOO MUCH.
i mean, this has just gotten out of hand.
why in the world would i bake a 9x12" apple crisp when i live by myself.
what was i thinking???

i need help. or 12 roommates.

nonetheless! this recipe was super fab and classic.
i would have rated it 'easy breezy' except that it was actually
quite time consuming to core, peel and slice all the apples.
otherwise - super easy :)

i have made some slight modifications to the recipe below.
cutting back the water and increasing the cinnamon.

this would have been a crowd pleaser if had a lot of guests.
although looking back, i should have just stuck with
some individual apple tarts.

that project will be for next week :)

until then, enjoy!!
