Golden Graham Apple Crisp

image
A little over a month ago, a large yellow package appeared at my door labeled “Stimulus Package.”  Inside was a case of Golden Grahams (12 boxes) that I had won from a sweepstakes from General Mills.  After that, my boyfriend started entering the same sweepstakes.  After a week or two, it ended.  Then a couple weeks later, another yellow box showed up!  BigJones was almost angry that we had another 12 boxes of the same cereal, and we had only eaten through 3 boxes from the first case. 
Well, I decided instead of eating the same cereal every morning, I would try and find ways to use up the Golden Grahams in more creative ways.  So when my mom gave me a bag of apples when I last visited, I got the idea to make Apple Crisp with Golden Grahams.  It turned out pretty damn well!

Here’s the recipe. Note: I’ve never written a recipe before, so please let me know if anything is confusing!
What you will need:
  • ~1 cup Brown Sugar, packed
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
  • 4 cups Golden Grahams, half crushed
  • Additional Golden Grahams to coat top
  • 6-9 medium apples
  • cinnamon, to taste
Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 375; grease 13X9 pan
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, partially crush 4 cups Golden Grahams so that there are very few or no whole pieces left IMG_1790
  3. Add brown sugar and butter; mix completelyIMG_1793
  4. Slice apples and layer them on the bottom of the pan and sprinkle cinnamon over them (optional) IMG_1792
  5. Pour the Golden Graham mixture evenly over apples
  6. Layer additional Golden Grahams on top as desiredIMG_1794
  7. Bake for 30 minutes or until apples are soft and slide off of a knife
  8. If desired, pour 1 or 2 cups of uncooked Golden Grahams on top for an added crunch
Serve warm and enjoy!

More Tips and Things:
  • I used a full box of Golden Grahams, mostly because I wanted to use them up.  If you like more apples and less “crisp”, still use 4 cups Golden Grahams in the mixture, but don’t sprinkle as much over top of that.
  • This turned out to be pretty sweet because Golden Grahams are already sweetened.  If you like it less sweet, use less brown sugar (3/4 cup)
If you try this recipe, please let me know how you like it!
