We made nachos today, which were ok. We also made Apple Crisp, from Food TV's show "Down Home with the Neelys". Wow, that was so good! It was very easy, too. I don't think I'll be making an apple pie for a long time; who needs to fuss with a crust?
I did the crisp in a square casserole, since I don't have enough ramekins. It turned out great. Also, serving it into a bowl gave me room to put some "pralines and cream" ice cream on top. I recommend that highly. :) :)
With so many apples at the store right now, I couldn't resist swapping in one Golden Delicious and one McIntosh in place of two of the Granny Smiths (my second substitution was less successful, read below). We have a spiral apple peeler/slicer/corer, which made nice sized apple for the recipe. Just slice the rings into quarters. The kids call the apple peel "fruit by the foot", and eat it in long ribbons.
I made this a second time, with I think one Granny Smith, one Golden Delicious, and three Fugi. It turned out much more watery, and not as full flavored. I think the Fugi is a good eating apple, but will not use it again for baking.
Next time I'm back to Granny/Golden/Macintosh. I might swap in a Jon-a-gold or a Rome. I found some good apple info here.
