Little Chef Disney Creations - Snow White's Sweet Apple Crisp

With two daughters, Disney Princesses are part of our everyday life, whether that be wearing princess dresses, playing with princess dolls, reading their stories, watching their movies or even the girls’ princess themed room.  But Emily has always been in love with one in particular - Snow White.  When she was first learning about the princesses, Snow White was always known as the yellow dress girl.  Emily finally was able to meet Snow White for the very first time on our last trip to Walt Disney World, and yes, I did get teary-eyed when Emily’s face lit up when she saw her!

Anytime we watch Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, there is one part that Emily always has the same reaction.  When the witch hands Snow White the apple, Emily repeats over and over, “Don’t eat that, Snow White.  Don’t take a bite, Snow White.”  She has seen the movie several times, but yet, she is always rooting for Snow White to make the right decision.  Of course, it is the same outcome every time, but it doesn’t matter, Emily tries to persuade her anyways!

For today’s recipe we decided to combine Emily’s love of Snow White with Hayley’s love of apples.  We thought this would also put a positive spin on apples and their place in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs!

The kids thought it would be a good idea to "model" the ingredients!
10 c. apples, peeled, cored, and sliced (enough to just about fill a 13x9 pan)
1/4 c. water

Emily's favorite job~stirring
Spices for Apples:
1c. granulated sugar
1 T. flour
1 t. cinnamon

1 1/2 c. quick cooking oats
1 c. flour
1 1/2 c. brown sugar
3/8 t. baking powder
3/8 t. baking soda
3/4 c. butter, melted

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Place the sliced apples in a 13x9 pan. Sprinkle the spices over the apples. Then, pour the water evenly over all.
3. Combine all the ingredients for the topping. Crumble evenly over the apple mixture.
4. Bake for 45 minutes

It's delicious on its own, but in our house, we think everything tastes
better with a little ice cream!

This recipe is a combination of many different apple crisp recipes I had tried out, and one of my favorite recipes to make with my kids.  Because there are so many components, each of my children has a job.  While someone is using my Apple Peeler & Corer (from William Sonoma and one of my favorite kitchen tools!), someone else can be mixing the spices for the apples and another can be mixing the ingredients for the topping.  It creates some great family moments!

  1. Beth, I love apple crisp! My dad used to always make it with extra of the topping... cause that's the best part. :) I love to make it and serve it with Vanilla Bean ice cream. YUM!

    The story of Emily and Snow White is so sweet. I'd love to see that. Your kids are so adorable and they look like they are having so much fun in the kitchen. It's great that they enjoy getting in the kitchen with you!

  2. What a great recipe. I was going to say for kids but it's for anyone. I love apple crisp and like Kristen with a little vanilla bean ice cream, YUM!!!

    Your little chefs are so adorable and I love the Snow White "don't eat the apple" story.
    Those are magical memories!!!

  3. Oh, I definitely agree that everything tastes better with a little ice cream!! And especially when served on heart-shaped princess plates!

  4. Great post Beth! Looks yummy!

  5. Thanks,everyone! I have been trying to comment for days, but Blogger wouldn't let me! :-)

    Apple picking is a tradition for us. We go to where my grandmother used to take my mom, my mom always took my brother and I and now my mom (and I) take the kids to the same place.
