I'm always on the lookout for quick recipes that look and taste like you have slaved away. Here's one that takes just 3 apples and makes two coffee cakes. Delicious!
Apple Coffee Cake
1/2 cup butter flavored Crisco
1-cup (8 ounces) sour cream
1-3/4 to 2 cups chopped peeled apples
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons cold butter
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
In a mix bowl, cream shortening and sugar. Add eggs and vanilla; mix well. Add flour to the creamed mixture, alternately with sour cream. Stir in apples. Transfer to two greased 8-inch square baking dishes. For topping, combine brown sugar and cinnamon. Cut in butter until crumbly. Stir in nuts; sprinkle over batter. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
May be frozen up to six months: thaw in refrigerator overnight.
Makes 2 coffee cakes. 6-9 servings each.
