Last weekend we had our first rain of the season. We usually have dry weather (no rain at all) from May - October. It was so nice to see, hear and smell the rain again...I LOVED it! It really put me in the mood to bake. I wanted apple pie but didn't feel like making the pie crust so I decided on Cinnamon Apple Crisp.
Slice the apples and toss with brown sugar and cinnamon.
To make the topping, blend flour, sugar and butter with a pastry blender~I am always shocked at how many people do not have this handy little kitchen gadget, it works great for cutting the butter into the dry ingredients. I could have used the food processor but I enjoy doing this by hand.
Add the apples to a baking pan and cover with the topping and bake it! The scent of cinnamon and apples fill the air. I really wish you could smell this through your monitor!
