Apple Recipes for Family

My two sons love apples so much. Maybe because the very first food (besides milk) that I have introduced my two sons is apple. I used to make them apple puree everyday which they love so much.

 It is just yesterday when I thought of researching for Apple recipes which I can do in my kitchen just to give my kiddos favorite apple a twist. 

Here are the recipes I got which you can also try to prepare for your family!

 Apple Crisp

all-purpose apples, peeled, cored and sliced
1 cup white sugar
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup water
1 cup quick-cooking oats
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup butter, melted


 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degree C).
    Place the sliced apples in a 9x13 inch pan. Mix the white sugar, 1 tablespoon flour and ground cinnamon together, and sprinkle over apples. Pour water evenly over all.
    Combine the oats, 1 cup flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda and melted butter together. Crumble evenly over the apple mixture.
    Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for about 45 minutes.
