The best apple crisp
I am a huge lover of fall desserts.
Apples. Pumpkin. Cinnamon. I’m not sure it gets much better than that. With the fall weather last week, there is nothing I wanted more than some apple crisp. I have an easy recipe totally worth testing out. The crumble is incredible.
I’ve never put a recipe out on the Internet before, so I hope you guys like it.
What you need: (9” x 12” Baking Dish)
8 – 10 apples (I used a combo of Gala & Macintosh)
a few drops of Lemon Juice
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1.5 teaspoons cinnamon
3/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 1/2 cups flour
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup Large Oats
1/2 pound unsalted butter
How to Assemble!
Pre-heat the oven to 375-degrees F.
Mix 1/3 cup of sugar, 1-1/2 teaspoons of cinnamon and ¾ teaspoon of nutmeg in a small bowl.
Peel your apples and chop them into small wedges. Try to keep the sizes fairly similar so all of the apples cook at the same pace. I actually used one of these apple corer/cutting tools, and then sliced each of the wedges in 2. It made it a lot faster for me.
Give your apples a little squirt of lemon juice as you go to keep them from browning too much while you prep everything.
Mix in your bowl of spices and let this sit for about 20 minutes. (or at least until you’re done your crumble!)
Mix together the ¾ cup of sugar, ¾ cup of brown sugar 1/2 teaspoon of salt and 1 cup of the large oats in a large mixing bowl. If you have a stand mixer, You’ll want to use this.
Take your butter and cut it up in to small cubes. And add these to your mixer.
I like to add the flour in portions, I added ½ cup at a time until I added the full 1-1/2 cups.
Mix on low until you have a consistent looking mixture.
Butter or spray your casserole dish with cooking spray to prevent sticking
Pour in your apples. I’ve learned you don’t need any of the excess juices that are sitting in the bottom of the bowl. It wont hurt, but you can skip that bit of extra sugar if you want.
Top with your crumble
Bake for 40 – 50 minutes until the apples are bubbling and the crumble is nicely browned.
Let cool slightly before serving. Top with Caramel sauce or vanilla ice cream if it tickles your fancy.
