Solar Cooking: Apple Oatmeal Cobbler

I came up with a new recipe today, based on this recipe for Grandmother’s Crustless Pie from solarcooking.org. Mine is actually very different, but the recipe collection from the site provided the inspiration. It’s not really a cobbler and not really a crisp either. I’m at a loss for the perfect name so Apple Oatmeal Crisp will have to suffice.

You’ll need:

4 apples, pealed and sliced

1/4 cup sugar

Cinnamon

1/4 cup butter

1 cup old-fashioned oats

1 cup brown sugar

Butter a round black roaster. Mix the apples and sugar in the pan. In a bowl, combine the oatmeal, brown sugar, cinnamon and butter and sprinkle over apple mixture. Cover and bake in solar oven. Cool and serve with vanilla ice cream.

This was an absolutely wonderful dessert for a hot, hot summer day with no extra heat generated in our kitchen.

    One thing I have to say about this blog – it sure makes me hungry! It explains, too, why Jim looks like Santa Claus.

    Ho-ho-ho, Bill!

    By the way, this dessert was AMAZING in ways other apple crisps have disappointed. Every other recipe I’ve tasted that had oatmeal as a top crust either dried out or worse scorched. The long, slow-heat of the solar cooker made the oatmeal nice and tender, a little texture which was a great contrast to the apples and ice cream. YUM!
