Cooking With Kids
It is apple harvest time and no apple treat is more loved and easier to make than Apple Crisp. Let the kids mix up the dry ingredients to make this quick and easy dessert. It's so yummy my charges and I made this Betty Crocker Apple Crisp recipe twice this week! The kids can help you wash the apples, measure the ingredients, stir the ingredients with a fork, pour the apples into the baking dish, and sprinkle the topping over the apples.

What You Will Need:
4 tart cooking apples (4 cups)

1/3 cup butter or margarine, softened
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
8 inch square pan
Whipped cream or ice cream, if desired
What to Do:
1. Heat oven to 375 F degrees. Grease bottom and sides of an 8-inch square pan with shortening.
2. Layer apples in pan. In a medium bowl, use a fork to stir the remaining ingredients (except cream) until well mixed. Press the butter with a fork until the dry ingredients are moist. Allow kids to sprinkle the topping over the apples.
3. Bake about 30-minutes or until topping is golden brown and the apples are tender when pierced with a fork. It's best served warm with whipped cream or ice cream.
