Katrina: If I were a Teacher

If I were a teacher, I would want something tasty.  Of course I would love anything my students gave me, but I have a sweet tooth and always love a dessert.

I did major in elementary education, but I never taught in the classroom.  So, I know the training that goes into qualifying to be a teacher.  Teachers deserve to be appreciated!

I decided for my post this week, I would go along with the apple theme that goes with teachers.  So I am going to post a delicious recipe for Apple Crisp.  I got this fabulous recipe from a family cookbook compiled by the one and only Sara.  This specific recipe comes from their grandmother, and I have tried it before - yum.  Here are the instructions:


Part 1
- 1 cup flour                                                                 - 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 cup quick oats                                                        - 1/4 teaspoon salt
- I cup brown sugar                                                      - 1/4 teaspoon soda
- 1 cube butter

Blend well until crumbly.

Part 2
- 8 cups sliced apples
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 4 tablespoons butter


Mix "part 2" together and place in buttered 9x13 inch pan.  Sprinkle "part 1" as a topping over apple mixture.

Bake at 350* for 45 minutes.  Serve warm.

Here is a picture of apple crisp, if you don't know what it looks like.  I got this picture from this url:

You could find a cute apple shaped serving dish to put it in before you give it to your teacher.  I found this picture at

Well, here you have it, my attempt at an idea for teacher appreciation.  Boy am I grateful for the good teachers that I had in school that helped in instill in me a love a learning! 



  1. Dang, I wish you were a parent at my school! I'd love a treat like that for teacher appreciation week :)
