I am back!

I have been absent from my blog writing for far too long! I have actually missed it...and I hope you have missed my posts too. Completing my course to become an herbalist...took many...many months...and all of my focus...but now that I have completed this very fun but intense study...I have the creative energy to write again...on one of my favorite subjects...FOOD!

September is such a lovely month...because it is the beginning of the Fall season. What is more appealing on a nice Fall day or evening...than to get in your kitchen and bake something easy...sweet and oh so good. Apples are plentiful right this is the perfect dessert to make this month. Enjoy!

Nothing says something homemade!

12 servings

3 cups old-fashioned oats
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups packed dark brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup cold butter...cubed
8 cups thinly sliced ...and peeled tart apples
1 cup apple cider...divided

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl...mix the oats...flour...brown sugar...and cinnamon...then cut in butter until crumbly. Press half of the mixture into a greased 13 x 9 inch baking dish.Next add a layer of the apples...a bit of the oat mixture...and continue layering until ingredients are gone.Top layer needs to be oat mixture. Drizzle with 1/2 cup apple cider over top.

Bake uncovered for 30 minutes. Drizzle with remaining cider...bake 20 minutes longer or until apples are tender. Serve hot with ice cream. Yum!
