Sheltering Tree Card & Recipe

 Hello. It's getting late. Going on 9 p.m. My husband went to watch the football game with his brother and the grandkids went home, they have been on fall break and have basically been here for most of the week. so I have the house to my self for awhile. That doesn't happen very often. So made me a cup of coffee and thought I would get this post posted.

 It's getting close to Halloween. Are you crafter's doing any Halloween projects?  I have been working on a few things. I need to be working on them tonight but I'm just to tired.

 I made some cute Halloween boxes last year for trick or treaters. and also some bags for my grandkids. Here is the links if you would like to see them.  

Made a birthday card for my sister and thought I would share it with you all because that's what we paper craft bloggers do. Right? Hee!

I do love to make fall cards and I enjoyed this one. So simple to make. Just randomly added ink colors to the tree stamp. 
I like the added jute twine. Reminded me of the rope from the swing. 

I also wanted to share a recipe with you. My grandson had been wanting me to make a Apple Crisp. I have made them in the past but didn't see my recipe. So I got creative and come up with this one. 

Apple Double Crumble (Thought this was the perfect name for it)

You will need

3 cans of Apple pie filling

2 1/4 C. Quick Oats
2 1/4 C. Flour
2 1/4 C. Brown sugar
2 TBS Cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp Baking powder
3 sticks melted butter

The ingredients that you add to the apples are below.

Preheat oven 350
Butter a 9x13 pan

This part is to mix with apples-
In a microwave safe bowl melt 1/2 stick of butter. To that add a little cinnamon, brown sugar, vanilla and 1/2 tsp of cornstarch.  I didn't measure the other three ingredients.  Oops wasn't thinking at the time. 

In large bowl add apples. Mix in mixture and put in pan and bring just to a boil. Turn off

In a large bowl add remaining ingredients. Add melted butter last. Mix well. 

Add some of the oat mixture to the buttered 9 x 13 pan. spread and press down. (enough to spread over entire bottom.) 

Add Apple mixture and then drop spoonfuls of the oat mixture all over the top. Take a fork to help spread it out. 

Bake on 350 for 1 hour

It turned out delicious. The grandkids loved it and ate several bowls and my husband loves it to. This will be my go to recipe now.  Would be great on a snowy day. 

Thanks for stopping by. If you give this recipe a try,let me know how you liked It. Have a great day!
