Easy Apple Crisp

Happy Thanksgiving (or relax-giving as I’ve been calling it this year)!

Our holiday was small—just my husband, my dad, and me. There was a simple menu of turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, salad and apple crisp. We had mimosas, went on a mid-afternoon walk, drank red wine, listened to holiday music, and watched The Family Stone. Holiday cards were written and paninis were toasted in a crackling fire.  

Here is some holiday inspiration from my Relax-giving:
-There are lots of holiday music slideshows
 available on youtube.com.
-Slippers and monogrammed wine totes make great presents. And these would be perfect for a modern art lover!
-Santa's Sleigh is a cute font for holiday card addresses.
-My family’s holiday staple: homemade bread (and why my dad claims he married my mother).

Finally, apple crisp is the perfect easy, delicious dessert for Thanksgiving or any holiday meal...

Easy Apple Crisp

-5 to 6 apples
-1 cup flour
-1 cup white sugar
-1 teaspoon baking powder
-1/4 teaspoon salt
-1 large, unbeaten egg
-1/3 cup melted butter

-Vanilla ice cream, for serving.

To make
1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease your baking dish with butter.  (I used a 10 by 2 inch pie plate.)
2) Peel, core, and slice apples; place apples in prepared baking dish.
3) Whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Stir in unbeaten egg and melted butter, forming a crumb mixture.
4) Crumble mixture over apples. Sprinkle with cinnamon.
5) Back for 30 minutes or until lightly browned.
6) Serve with vanilla ice cream.
