Baked Apples with Oatmeal Streusel Topping
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 t cinnamon
- pinch of ground ginger and salt
- 3-4 apples
Preheat your oven to 350, and melt the butter and mix it with the rest of the streusel toppings. Halve the apples and scoop out the seeds and stem areas, then fill them with the topping. Place in a dish and bake until the apples start to swell and the topping starts to brown, or roughly 30 minutes. Enjoy!
Simple Vanilla Ice Cream
- 2 cups heavy whipping cream
- 1 cup milk
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar (I'd take it down to 1/2)
- 1 T vanilla (the higher quality the better)
- pinch of sea salt (optional, but believe me, it's good)
If you are using a kitchenaid, make sure you put the attachment into the freezer at least a couple days before hand. Personally, I leave it in there in between batches, then it's ready when I run out. Stir all the ingredients in a bowl and mix until the sugar is dissolved, then assemble the ice cream machine and pour the cream mixture into it. Turn it on a low speed and let sit until it starts to form a sort of slushie texture or longer. That's how long I let mine sit, and it takes roughly 10-15 minutes, but don't get impatient! Spoon it into an airtight container and let sit in the freezer 4+ hours, if not overnight. It'll be loose before then, but still edible.
