Peanut Butter Bar Apple Crisp by Ashley at Plate and Pen
FINE. FINE. You guys. I did it. I baked my first “cooked apple thing.”
Anyone who knows me (if not, sup?), knows I cannot stand baked apples. Most baked fruit really. And Jeremy Renner. I’ve never liked baked apples, and I can’t even tell you when it started. The texture makes me gag. If it has any semblance of density to it, I’m like *gag noise*. I’m a blob in a chair. I have no bones, I can’t move. It’s just gross. Dramatic? Probably.
Now that I am starting to bake more sweets, and I do this whole “foodie thing,” I needed to sack up and bake some apples. Otherwise I’d just be that chick who keeps posting pumpkins and inserting herself in orchards. *gestures to profile picture*
My thought process behind this one was, how can I make this without being repulsed? The answer is, use my favorite childhood candy, a really good bag of apple crisp mix from an orchard of choice, and @sprinklepop.shop sprinkles. Oh and I guess you need apples.
Spoiler alert! This was so bomb. For me to eat this, I had to slice the apples oh-so-thin, and crumble up some Peanut Butter Bars (if you know, you know 90’s kids) into the crisp. There’s butter involved. Oh and vanilla bean ice cream. S’delish.
So now I can’t complain about baked apples any more. Will I though? Yes. Will I continue to Gladiator walk through orchard fields almost every weekend in the Fall? Also, yes! Is there a pumpkin patch I won’t visit or golden retriever snoot to boop? You better believe I’ll be there, probably dressed in plaid.
