We just had one of those days yesterday. It was rainy and cold outside and we just wanted to hide away in our pj's all day. Now this doesn't happen to me very often. But every once in a while you just need a day without any obligations outside the house. So we searches the house for food and an activity to do and I realized we always have the ingredients to make an apple pie lying around. I had seen these cute apple pies in an apple all over the internet, but I hadn't seen them in the apple crumble version yet. So we made, we ate and now we share!
So this is all you need to get started! Just open your kitchen cabinets. There's a 99% chance these ingredients will all be in there. Try it, I dare you!
2 oz raisins (let them sit in some water for a little bit)
2½ oz plain flour
2 oz margerine (or butter)
2 oz light demerara sugar
1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
Start off by hollowing out the apples. I'm sure there are all kinds of tools available for this, but I just used a sharp teaspoon and it worked fine. Thow the pieces of apple in a bowl together with the drained raisins and a teaspoon of cinnamon. Mix them together and fill the apples with the mixture.
Take another bowl and throw in the flower,the sugar and the butter and kneed them all together. Crumble the dough over the apples and slightly push it down. You don't want the crumbles to fall off in the oven. But the apples in an oventray and fill the tray with some water to make sure your apples don't wrinkle up like a couple of old grannies. Preheat the oven at 375 degrees and place the tray in the oven for about 20-25 minutes.
And voila! Serve it with a some chai tea latte and some whipped cream and you got yourself a delicious little treat. It was hard to snap a picture of the end result without Charlotte's little greedy fingers in it though, but I guess that's a good sign! Haha! Bon appetit! Oh, and I gave the blog a new look today. What do you think of it?
