Have I got a special recipe for you!
My sister-in-law moved from London to America a few months ago, and she brought some great English recipes with her. One of my favorites is Sophieâ€™s Apple Crumble.
Which is AMAZING with vanilla ice cream!
- 8 ounces of flour
- Four ounces of unsalted butter (cold)
- 5 ounces of sugar, separated into 3 ounces and 2 ounces
- Two 1/2 teaspoons of cinnamon
- 1 pound of green cooking apples, thinly sliced into crescents and skin removed
- Slice butter into flour, 3 ounces sugar, and cinnamon and mix first three ingredients until crumbly.
- Bring large pot of water to boil, place apple slices in, and add 2 ounces of sugar.
- Cook apples at boil for 5 â€“ 10 minutes or until soft but still firm.
- Drain apples and spread into bottom of greased casserole dish. Sprinkle another dash of cinnamon on top.
- Pack apples down and sprinkle on the crumbles.
- Bake at 400 degrees for 25 â€“ 30 minutes or until brown.
- Serve with vanilla ice cream!
Sophieâ€™s Apple Crumble was part of a big congratulations feast for the Husband (he just finished grad school).
My plate included roasted yegetables, stir-fry squash, grilled red peppersâ€¦ it was great! (Sorry for the bluuuur!)
I also had a glass of Merlot, too.
Before coming over to my in-lawsâ€™ house, I went on a 5K (3.1 mile) run around the neighborhood. I donâ€™t know what I was thinking because it was SUPER HOT out and in the middle of the day! I took a few walking breaks and finished up in 32:00 ish. Good run, though!
Before my run, I snacked on cherries and crackers with almond butter.
And for lunch, I had roasted broccoli with a hummus sandwich.
The hummus sandwich had sundried tomatoes and arugula on it â€“ my favorite way to make a hummus sammie!
Better get into bedâ€¦ weâ€™re driving to Charlotte in the AM!
Whatâ€™s your familyâ€™s famous dish? Do you have the recipe or does the cook hide it from everyone? 🙂
