Happy Fall... now go make this!

It's finally Fall!!! Did you all go look outside last night and the night before at Jupiter? It's so sparkly. :D

Anyway, Fall makes me want desserts with cinnamon and oats. It's true. So, after making a lovely pizza for dinner, I whipped up some delicious dessert. Here's how it goes:

Cinnamon Apple Bake

Preheat oven to 350.

3-4 granny smith apples (or something equally tart), cored & diced small
cinnamon and sugar, to coat the diced apples

2 tablespoons softened(not melted) butter
2 tablespoons flour
1/3 cup oats
2 tablespoons brown sugar

Get your diced apples into a mixing bowl. Add enough cinnamon and sugar to coat the apples and have a little tiny bit loitering in the bottom of the bowl. Pour them into a baking vessel big enough to hold them (I used a round cake pan since it was all I could reach, lol). Put the last 4 ingredients in the bowl and mash them together until the mixture resembles granola (ie: soft crumbles). Pour it over the top of the apples. Pop it in the oven for 45 minutes-1 hour, depending on your oven and how soft you like the apples to be. Don't let it burn, though. That's illegal.
Let it cool off a little bit before you eat some, or the roof of your mouth will suffer. By all means, make this for dessert, then eat it again for breakfast. :D

Enjoy Fall, eat well!
