Tasty Tuesday!

Hello Tuesday! Wishing everyone a wonderful day!

If you have an apple and I have an apple and we exchange these apples then you and I will still each have one apple. But if you have an idea and I have an idea and we exchange these ideas, then each of us will have two ideas.
-George Bernard Shaw


Apple Crisp



Serves: 8-10

Ingredients:

* 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
* 1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
* 1-1/2 sticks chilled, butter, cut into 1/2" pieces
* 1/2 cup chopped pecans
* 3/4 cup sugar
* 3 Tbsp all-purpose flour
* 1 tsp ground cinnamon
* 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
* 6 apples (honey crisp) peeled, cored, sliced thin
* Cooking Spray

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Directions:

1.) Blend 1 1/2 cups flour and brown sugar together in medium bowl.
2.) Add butter and blend in with fingers until moist clumps form.
3.) Mix in pecans and cover topping.
4.) Refrigerate until ready to use.
5.) Blend sugar, 3 Tbsp flour, cinnamon and nutmeg in large bowl.
6.) Mix in apples to form filling mixture.
7.) Spray 13x9 inch baking dish with cooking spray.
8.) Place filling mixture into baking dish and cover with the topping.
9.) Bake until apples are tender and top is golden, about 1 hour.
10.) Let rest 8-10 min and serve warm.


It is, in my view, the duty of an apple to be crisp and crunchable, but a pear should have such a texture as leads to silent consumption.
-Edward Bunyard



Honey Crisp Apples:



Honey crisp apples are very crisp and juicy. The flesh of this is cream colored and coarse. Honey crisp apples have scents that are mild to strongly aromatic, depending on how long they have aged on the tree. This apple has consistently ranked as one of the highest quality apples in sensory evaluations. Honey crisp apples can be stored up to four months in the refrigerator.
