Okay okay… I know it’s not Fall, when you would typically see an apple crisp posted. But, I found this recipe that this Fall and have loved it and this last week I got a craving and had to make it!
I mean what’s not to love about an apple crisp? Plus, you feel less guilty eating an apple crisp, because more than 1/2 the dessert is apples! haha!
- 7 regular-sized Granny Smith Apples (approx 3 lbs)
- 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/4 cup packed brown sugar (light)
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1 stick salted butter, cold
- 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- Start by preheating your oven to 375 degrees.
- Mix your dry ingredients in a large bowl: 3/4 cup all-purpose flour, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 2 tablespoons granulated sugar.
- Take your cold butter and cut it into cubes and cut it into the dry mixture. It's best to use a pastry blender if you have one. You want the mixture to be coarse when finished.
- Next, add the 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats. I like to use my hands to combine the oats to the mixture. But, if that makes you uncomfortable, then feel free to use a large spoon. You want it to be clumpy!
- Put in the fridge or freezer until you're ready for it.
- Now it's time to prepare your apples. Start by washing and cubing your apples. Put them in a bowl and toss them with the 2 1/2 tablespoons (or so) of lemon juice, 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon and remaining granulated sugar.
- Transfer the apples to a shallow baking dish or individual ramekins. You want the baking dish (or ramekin) filled about 1/2 way with apples.
- Then put a layer of the topping mixture over the apples.
- Put the baking dish(es) on a rimmed baking sheet and bake until golden brown and bubbling a little - approx 60 minutes.
- Allow them to cool for 10-15 before serving. Top with whipping cream!
Hope you love it as much as I do!
