Apple Week

Hands down favorite apple is probably Granny Smith. I love the color. The sweetness. The tartness. It's just a happy apple in my opinion.So it's Apple Week!!! I've been perusing all of my favorite apple recipes with plans to make some slow cooker apple butter to take to the office with some hot fresh biscuits. Perhaps next week.

Until then, I'll have to make do with an Oven Baked Apple Crunch,

6 cups thinly sliced apples
1 cup granulated sugar, or less if apples are sweet
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 egg
cinnamon (1 to 1 1/2 teaspoons)
1/2 cup butter

Place peeled and thinly sliced apples in a 13x9x2-inch baking dish. Sprinkle sugar over apples. Combine flour, salt, and baking powder; add egg and mix well until crumbly. Sprinkle flour-egg mixture over the apples; sprinkle evenly with cinnamon.

Melt butter and drizzle over top of apples. Bake at 350° until apples are tender, and top is browned, about 35 to 45 minutes. Serve hot or cold with whipped cream or ice cream.
