- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1/2 cup oats
- 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 3/4 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1/3 cup softened butter
We baked the crisp at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 minutes, then turned off the oven, and let it sit in the heat for another 30 minutes.
I served it warm with whipped cream. And, despite the vinegar, my oldest son asked for seconds. It doesn't taste exactly like apple, and it doesn't taste like pumpkin pie - just sweet, and spicy, with a hint of squashy richness. Take away the vinegar, and it would be pretty perfect.
I put The Long Winter on hold at the library too. Now that we've eaten the pie ,or a close relative to it, we can sit and listen to the story, enjoying our own long winter, and hoping the forecast is correct, and fall is returning, for at least a short appearance, next week.
It's great to be a homeschooler.
