Day 275: Apple Peanut Butter Crisp

We made this dessert on Saturday in St. George.  We went up Snow Canyon and found a nice picnic area that was close to the sand dunes and some hiking areas.  While the kids played I cooked.  It was a lot of fun!  It made for a really relaxing afternoon.  My poor hubby, who had just finished the marathon a few hours earlier sat in a chair and tried not to be in pain.  :)  This dessert was the second place winner at the Youth Cook Off back in April.

Apple Peanut Butter Crisp
10" dutch oven

6-8 tart apples, peeled and sliced, with 1/4 cup white sugar stirred in
1/2 cup water
2 Tbs. lemon juice
1 Tbs. cinnamon
3/4 cup flour
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup margarine

Arrange the apple slices in bottom of a lightly greased dutch oven.  Mix lemon juice and water and pour over apples.  Sprinkle cinnamon on top.  Mix remaining ingredients until crumbly.  Spread evenly over the apples.  Bake at 350° for about 40 minutes or until golden brown.  Use 1 1/2 rings on top and 1 ring on the bottom.  Serves 6-8.

The Finished Product

The Review

This was DELISH!!  I would have never thought of putting peanut butter in apple crisp.  It was sweet and tart and just peanut buttery enough.  Next time I'm going to have to double this one.  My kids couldn't get enough.  This was a great twist on traditional apple crisp.  Grade A.
