Rainy Day Apples

The finished product!  Yummm!
I was given a gift of four beautiful apples from up North.  Suddenly I found myself with apples and a rainy day on my hands.  This is what happened!


1/2 Stick of Butter
4 Nice Sized Apples peeled, cored and thinly sliced
2 Tbsp Lemon Juice
Dash of Salt (optional)
1 c. Craisins
1 1/2 c. Granulated Sugar

1 1/2 c. Brown Sugar
1 Stick of Butter
1/2 c. Walnut Pieces
1/4 c. Shredded Coconut (optional)
1 c. Dry Oats

Apple mixture in melted butter
Heat oven to 325°
Melt 1/2 stick of butter in a 13 x 9 baking dish
Place the next five ingredients into the mixing bowl and toss to coat apples and Craisins.  Pour the apple mixture into the pan on top of the melted butter and place it into the oven to get started while you mix the next batch of ingredients.

Mix dry ingredients until blended

Wash and dry the bowl for the next steps.  Add Brown Sugar and butter to the bowl and cut in the butter using a pastry blender or large fork until it is thoroughly mixed and pilly.  Add Walnuts, coconut and oats then cut with a fork until well blended.

Dry ingredients spread on top
Spoon the oat mixture evenly onto the top of the apples and bake uncovered for one hour or until it's kind of crusty and apples are the desired tenderness.  Oven temperatures and cooking times may vary.

This recipe served just the two of us.  Sadly there was not enough to share.
