My Apple Pickin' Adventure

Guess what I got to do yesterday?

Pick me some apples.  It was awesome.

Mommy and Daddy dwove us out to this place with lots of twees, and lo and behold, there was weal apples growin' on them!

We even got to take some of our best fwiends... like "Uncle" Danny.  It's so cool to have other people who wuv hanging out with me.

See?!  I'm a master picker... and eater.  Well, I twied, but Mommy's going to have to make me some applesauce so my gums can handle all this goodness.

She also loves making this wecipe during apple pickin' season.  It's the perfect breakfast with a dowup of yogurt or the perfect dessert with a wittle homemade whip cweam:

Cran-Apple Crisp:

8-10 apples, cored and sliced (I tend to leave the peels on)
1/4 cup honey (approximate)
1-2 tablespoon(s) all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon (or more) ground cinnamon
1/2 cup water
1 tablespoon lemon juice (not needed if you use craisens or cranberries)
1 cup craisens or cranberries - optional; if you use cranberries, add a little more honey
dash of salt

1 1/2 cup quick-cooking oats
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup wheat germ
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degree C).
Place the sliced apples in a 9x13 inch pan. Mix the honey, 1 tablespoon flour, lemon juice, craisen/cranberries and ground cinnamon together, and sprinkle over apples. Pour water evenly over all.
Combine the topping ingredients (oats, flour, wheat, brown sugar and softened butter). Crumble evenly over the apple mixture.
Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for about 45-60 minutes.
