# Can you help me?

I am going to make Apple Crisp for a church dinner tomorrow. This is my recipe:

4 cups sliced apples
3/4 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup oats
1 tsp cinnimon
1/2 tsp allspice
1/3 cup cold butter

That is all it calls for. It says to cook it in a 8 inch pan.

So this is my question. How many times do I double this recipe to make enough for a church dinner? I want to make enough to fill a 11 x 15 inch pan. Can anybody help me? I am terrible at math!!!! LOL

• double it then 1/2 more. I know sounds like a lot. it'll fill the pan and the men will thank you!

10 cups sliced apples
1 2/3 cups brown sugar
1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
1 1/4 cup oats
2 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 1/4 tsp allspice
3/4 cup cold butter

I double an 8x8 recipie for a 13x9 and an 11x15 is a little bit bigger.

• Look I'm not good at math either, but to double it, just repeat your main ingredients twice.

• For example, your 4 cups of apples, make it 8 cups, 1/2 cup of oats, make it 1 whole cup, you get it?

• But still wait until someone else respond, but this is how I would do it.

• Yeah I know how to bouble it but I don't think just doubling it will be enough for a whole church. I need to know how many times I need to repeat this recipe to fill my 11 x 15 inch pan. Do I quadruple it or times the recipe by 10 or what?

• I would say keep repeating it until the pan is full.

• I know this may be a lot of work, but I would just to be safe.
