Apple Crisp

26 Nov

When I get a lot of apples from Bountiful Baskets and I can sneak some away from my girls, I love to make Apple Crisp.  I actually hadn’t made it before last year, so I didn’t have a recipe.  Thankfully, after reaching out to friends for a recipe,  I got one that was exactly what I as looking for.  Thank you to Joshua W. for sharing your grandmother’s Apple Crisp recipe.  I love it, and everyone I’ve made it for or who has made it as well, loves it too.  Next time we get apples in Bountiful Baskets, a friend and I will be working on a gluten-free version of this, which, if we get it to work, I will share as well.

Apple Crisp

What you need:

4 cups peeled, cored, and sliced apples (I’ve used Gala, Granny Smith, Fuji, Macs, Cortlands, many varieties or a combination of varieties works)
1 Tablespoon flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 Tablespoons water or lemon juice

1/3 cup margarine or butter (cold, not melted)
1/3 cup flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup quick oatmeal
Note: I sometimes like more crumble on top, so I will double the topping ingredients.

How to make it:

Combine the ingredients for the filling and place in a 8×8 or 7×11 baking pan.

Cream together the butter and flour for the topping.  Mix in the brown sugar and oatmeal and form “crumbs” with your fingers. Spread over the apple mixture.

Bake at 325 F for 30-40 minutes.  Let cool slightly, and serve warm. Or it tastes great cold from the fridge the next day too…if it lasts that long!
