Craft Up Apples and Bake Up Apple Crisp

Apples are a favorite fall fruit of mine. I love eating them, baking with them, juicing with them and even crafting with them. With so many varieties of Apples at the grocery store it is hard to choose what apple is best for what.

For snacking I love Red Macintosh. Crisp and sweet - yummy! For baking I use Granny Smith - They have a tart taste that is perfect with sugar and they keep their shape after baking. For juicing, I use red or golden delicious and Fuji apples. I like to add carrots and ginger to my juiced apples. When it comes to crafting....I use any apples that are beginning to look sad.

Apple Crisp from Creative Juice

Ingredients Needed:

6 cups of peeled & cut rome or granny smith apples
Juice of ½ Lemon
1 ¼ cups sugar
1 pinch cinnamon
1 pinch nutmeg
1 pinch ground ginger
1 cup flower
½ cup butter
9X9 baking dish


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2. Peel and quarter the apples until you have 6 cups.

3. Place the fruit in a bowl and toss with the lemon juice and ¼ cup sugar. The acid in the lemon juice will slow the oxidation “Turning brown” on cut fruits.

3. In a separate bowl mix together the remaining sugar, flour, and spices. Using a fork mush the butter into the flour mixture until the butter is into small pieces.

4. Place the fruit into a 9X9 glass-baking dish. Sprinkle the butter and flour mixture over the fruit.

5. Bake 40-60 minutes. The top should be browned and the fruit should be bubbly.


  1. An altered rolling pin - how cute! I like the idea of putting your favorite apple (or pie) recipe on it. What a nice go-together gift package they would make: the rolling pin with a pie or apple crisp. Yummy!

  2. This looks delicious! I just need some vanilla ice cream to put on top of it.

  3. Must. Bake. Apple Crisp.....

    Looks yummy! And the projects are fab!


I love comments and questions. Sometimes it takes me a few days to reply. Have a wonderful day!
