Apple Crisp

Besides all things pumpkin, and being my favorite season, Fall equals Honeycrisps!  Mmmm...  Deliciously sweet honeycrisps.  My favorite thing to do with them (other than just sit down to lunch with one), is make Apple Crisp.

Apple Crisp is super special at our house because #1 - it's amazing, and #2 - I only make it in the Fall.

Here's what you'll need:

2-3 Honeycrisp apples (depending on size)
1 cup oats (you really can use regular or quick cooking without much difference)
1 cup flour (I use whole wheat)
1/2 tbsp cinnamon
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 stick of butter
Peel and slice apples and set aside.  If you choose to use wedges, make sure they are aren't too thickly sliced.
Place all dry ingredients in a mixing bowl.
Melt butter, pour over dry ingredients, and mix.  
Mixture should look as pictured below.
What really makes this amazing is layering the mixture with the apples.  Some people just do one layer of each, but I like a bit of everything in each bite, so I layer multiple times.
Bake at 375 for 45 minutes.  
You can enjoy by itself, or with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.  Yum!!

Pumpkin French Toast

It's Fall!  In our house - and I'm sure many others - that means time for all things pumpkin!  I recently saw a picture of pumpkin french toast and thought, "Why didn't I think of this before?!"

French toast is one of Little Guy's favorite Sunday morning breakfasts, so to celebrate the first day of Autumn, I decided to make Pumpkin French toast.

Here's what I used:

8 slices of bread
3 eggs
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup pumpkin
1/2 tsp cinnamon
powdered sugar

Beat eggs and combine with milk, pumpkin, and cinnamon.
Coat each side of your bread in mixture and cook on griddle (or you can use a pan) flipping when each side is gently browned.

Sprinkle with powdered sugar if desired.

Enjoy with a bit of syrup!

*I had a few slices left over after breakfast, so I froze them individually in ziplock baggies.  They make a great breakfast for mornings when you're short on time.  Just pop them in the toaster to reheat.  You can even cut them into sticks to eat on the go!
