Vintage Recipe: Apple Flake Crunch

I'm digging into old recipe boxes and rediscovering the family favorites hidden inside! You'll find carefully handwritten recipe cards, newspapers and magazines clippings and even some hastily scrawled directions on scraps of paper, all from years (and years) ago! They're all getting scanned and transcribed so you can enjoy them in your own home kitchen. 

Here is another great apple recipe to try while the apples are in season!

This recipe card for Apple Flake Crunch was handwritten on an index card, mixed up in a modest collection of recipes (some dating back to the 1940s). It’s age is unknown.

A note at the top says “Good Topping!” and indicates the recipe serves 4 – 6.

The original recipe has been scanned and is transcribed below. It can be printed for use in your own home kitchen. Enjoy!
