1. Apples
Yum. Must be a fall thing. This reminds me of a pear tart they made on The F Word recently--caramelizing the fruit that way was really appealing.

I just had a horrible yen for apple pie, apple crisp, apple something last night, just before I had to head to work. Had stumbled across a recipe online earlier and ended up trying it--slicing some apples into a small crock pot with a little flour, cinnamon, turbinado, walnuts, toffee bits, and oats with a few dabs of butter on top. Turned out really well (about 6 hours on low), except next time I would stick it under the broiler a couple minutes at the end for that toasty oat crunch I like on a crisp. Really good and minimal effort went into it. Much as I love a proper pie, I think oats make for a more satisfying treat (and way better for you without all that fat).
