We were out apple picking over the weekend. Was feeling very wholesome- went to Church ( okay, its my quasi-Unitarian not really church Church) then apple picking and made some apple crisp with my best friend.
I am asked ALL the time for my apple crisp recipe- many raving saying it is the best apple crisp they have ever tasted… so will post here. I change up sometimes by adding nuts to topping, make it healthier apple crisp by using rolled oats intsead of flour and cutting down on margarine. I will also add raisins or some other types of fruit like rhubarb or strawberries. It all works.
Doesn’t seem to matter how much I make- it all goes quickly.
Best Apple Crisp Recipe
Preheat oven to 375F
cut up apples and put in buttered pan ( usually I double the recipe below and put in a 81/2 x 11 pan)
Slice 4 cups tart apples ( I like Braeburn or Spartan)
Sprinkle with cinnamon (or not) and toss with about 1-2 tsp of lemon juice.
Blend mixture below until crumbly
1/2 Cup Flour ( you can also use 1/4 C flour 1/4 c rolled oats and cut down on butter for “healthier” version)
1/2 Brown Sugar ( fine to mix with white or just use white)
1/4 Cup butter ( margarine fine- this is what I use)
1/2 tsp salt
“sprinkle” mixture above over apples. bake for about 3-45 mins.
