Autumn Journal and a Recipe
Since I have no talent for sketching, my journal will probably be mainly collage. I left the cover of the journal as it was and have the first three pages done.
I thought I'd post the recipe I use for my crisps. I make a big recipe and store it in the fridge in a covered container so it's very quick to prepare the fruit, sprinkle some of the topping on and bake at 350 degrees until nice and golden brown. Probably half an hour or a bit more. ( I tend to be haphazard about times etc. Sorry.)
Topping for Fruit Crisp
2 cups flour
2 cups rolled oats
1 1/4 cup brown sugar ( or more if you like things sweeter).
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup butter or margarine, cut in pieces
Reserve 1 cup of the rolled oats. Combine the rest of the ingredients in a food processor until well mixed.
Add the last cup of oats and you're done.
The reason I add that cup last is because the food processor chops it so fine and we like more texture.
If you make the recipe using a pastry cutter you can add that last cup right from the start.
If you do try it please let me know if you were happy with the results. I think it's really hard to mess up a crisp.
Thanks for visiting,
