This week has been a bit of a wash for me in the food waste department, my father-in-law went on a trip to Florida and I haven’t quite adjusted my cooking/shopping yet. I’ll have to be creative this weekend if I don’t want to waste a scary amount of milk.
I gave the fridge a deep clean and found a few not so welcome surprises in the back like; a very gross cucumber that I have NO recollection of getting, a portion of meatball soup and two blue (literally and figuratively) oranges. I did save a lot of apples though due, in no small part to coming up with a new recipe.
It seems funny to think of this as a new recipe when they seem so old-fashioned and homey. I used apples but you could use any fruit that you have extra of. This is the type of dessert that you could make for a weekday dinner but still have very happy company. I love a nice square. Quicker than cookies, cake or pie.
Mix together as you would a crumble top (not mushing but rubbing the ingredients together until just combined); 1 1/2 cups flour, 1 1/2 cups rolled oats, 11/2 cups brown sugar, 3/4 cups white sugar, 1 tsp cinnamon and 1 cup butter.
