In a drastic turn of events Sunday night, two parents asked their kids to "get cranky!" Of course, it was all in preparation for a delicious dessert to be accompanied by a glass of water or whine on the menu.

The formula for cranky bliss is as follows (thanks Patti!):

In a 9" deep pie dish crust (from the frozen section, of course!), mix:

1 Tbsp flour
2 Tbsp sugar

Peel, core, and slice 4-6 yellow delicious apples and place in pie crust. Pile the apples higher than the piecrust; when they bake, they will fall into the crust. Sprinkle cinnamon on top of the apples.

In a separate bowl, combine: 1 cup flour, 1 cup sugar, 1 stick butter. Roll the mixture between your hands until little balls form.
The parents in our feature were not daring enough to let the children mix this topping, but they were permitted to drop the ball topping over the apples to form the top crust. Bake at 350 degrees for 45-60 minutes until golden brown.

I can't believe you have that crank things in your kitchen toys. I have no such thing. I might need to get to target to get me one...not that I will ever use it though.
