Kathryn says: My friend Amy hosted another lovely dinner party, and, being the stellar cook that she is, I didn’t want to show up with a bag of chips. I knew she’d appreciate something from scratch.
I had a bunch of green apples in the fridge and a craving for oatmeal, so I decided to bake an apple oatmeal crisp.
I modified this recipe from Cooks.com by using Smart Balance instead of butter, keeping the skin on the apples (I like the taste), and replacing lemon juice with Dole Pineapple-Orange Strawberry juice (I didn’t have a lemon).
I liked the crunch of the spiced sugar and oatmeal on the soft apples. It tasted like a sweet, old-fashioned comfort treat to me. And Amy and her guests seemed to enjoy it too.
