I let my 3 year old class peel, core and slice some of their apples after our trip to the apple
 orchard, with this gadget. They love doing it. She also has a wonderful clay stone 9 x 12 baking
 pan and we fill the bottom of the pan with apple slices - at least one apple peeled by each child -
 (I have 10 children) then sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar mixture or sugar and apple pie spice
 mixture to cover apples lightly. Then we use a jiffy or Martha White small package of yellow cake
 mix, and just sprinkle that over the apples, do not make a batter but use the dry cake mix -
 sprinkle some more spice and sugar on top cake mix and drizzle a melted stick of margarine
 over the top of cake, bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes - serve hot with ice cream
 is best - or let cool and have for snack in the afternoon.  Delicious - Great fun for the kids.

Apple Crisp

I did this recipe after making apple sauce. I reminded the children that we used
 a simple machine last time...What was it? apple corer. To make this
 recipe even more "hands on" for children I purchased an old fashioned "apple
 peeler". They are now reproducing them (at least here in the East.). Today we
 talked about a new machine that will help us get the apples
 ready in a different way for making this recipe.

1. Child chooses and washes an apple.
2. Teacher places the apple onto the apple peeler machine.
3. Child turns the crank and watches as the machine peels and
slices the apple. (This was a fascinating step for all involved.)
4. Child places the apple slices and counts them into a dish/pan
with a little water on the bottom.

STEP 2 - The Topping
Mix the following ingredients:
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup of flour
1/2 cup of oats
1/2 cup of cinnamon
1/2 cup of nutmeg
1/3 cup of margarine melted in a microwave

Mix and stir. Pat topping onto the top of the apples. Bake in a 350 oven for
 about 30 minutes (or until apples are bubbling and top is hardening).
 Spoon into individual bowls and leave plenty of time to cool before snack.
 YUM! For a class of 15 we mixed and used two batches of topping on a large pan.


Individual Apple Pies:

You'll need ready-made pie crust (the kind that comes packaged flat in the dairy case)
 canned apple pie filling . Have each child cut out two large circles of piecrust (using
 a large, round  cookie cutter or a large plastic drinking cup).  Put a spoonful of pie filling
 in the middle of one circle. Place the second dough circle on top. Use a fork to crimp
 the edges and pierce a few holes in the top to allow  steam to escape.
 Bake in a toaster oven 10-15 minutes or until brown.

Core the apples first

Put everything into a food processor and pulse-chop until it is the right consistency!
 Yum!  You can certainly expand this recipe - just experiment with the amount
 of the remaining ingredients if you use more apples, you will probably use a
 smaller proportion of lemon juice and cinnamon,  Lemon juice is added to keep
 the raw apples from turning brown  This could be offered along with the cooked
 applesauce as a comparison. If I were to do that, I would add cinnamon
 to the cooked recipe too so that the texture and raw vs. cooked taste is the focus.
