Cinnamon Apple Crisp

IMG_2861

Happy Monday everybody!!!! During my final foods lab of the semester we had a cooking competition! The only rule was that you had to use a special ingredient assigned to your group by our teacher. We also couldnโ€™t follow any recipes! For our dessert dish my group had to use 2 apples, so we decided to make a cinnamon apple crisp. It was delicious!!! We got 2nd place by 1 point! It was a very fun experience (I felt like I was on Chopped or Iron Chef)! Our dessert was so good that I decided to make it for my family over Thanksgiving break! Since it was Shop Small Saturday this past weekend I decided to go to a local place called Stritesโ€™ Orchard to get my apples. My family loved it and I hope that you will as well ๐Ÿ™‚

    Again your photography adds so much to the stories! Such a small world…our former neighbor is Cindy Strite…she’s from PA and the Strite’s Orchard family are cousins! My farmers market has pears too & I could make this mixing apples and pears. Being in the top two in the competition is fantastic. I need to try things more often with no recipe. Yours was so successful.
