Ask DJ Lyons: How to make Apple Crisp

How to make Apple Crisp

Years ago, a friend shared a recipe with me for making Apple Crisp. Unfortunately, I did not write down the name of this friend; therefore, I cannot share my source with you. If I remember correctly, it was back when I was teaching. We would have do a pot luck birthday celebration. I think this was a recipe brought in by one of those teachers. Since I liked it so much, I asked for the recipe.

This is a dessert that can be served with or without ice cream or Cool Whip. I prefer to have it served warm with plenty of Vanilla Bean Ice cream. See the pictures below.

Ingredients

1/4 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
2 teaspoons cinnamon
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup butter, softened
From 3 Fuji Apples up to 5 cups chopped up

Please note: I doubled the above recipe plus used up about ten to twelve Gala Apples that had been sitting around for a while and were starting to go soft. I thought this would be a delightful way to use up those apples that were no longer crisp.

Procedure as dictated in the original Recipe

1. Mix all dry ingredients together.

2. Add butter and mix with fork until crumbly.

3. Wash and chop up (or slice thinly) apples.

4. Place apples in a 9 x 13 pan or casserole dish.

5. Pour water over apples.

6. Cover apples with sugar mixture.

7. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

8. Cover pan with aluminum foil and bake for 30 minutes.

9. Then bake uncovered for 30 to 40 minutes until apples are bubbly and dessert looks done.

The way I made the recipe differently.

1. Minus the apples, mix all the other ingredients together and blend well.

2. Wash and chop up (or slice thinly) apples. Add to mixture and stir well.

3. Place apple mixture in a 9 x 13 pan or casserole dish.

4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

5. Cover pan with aluminum foil and bake for 30 minutes.

6. Then bake uncovered for 30 to 40 minutes until apples are bubbly and dessert looks done.

Please note: I've made the recipe using both procedures. My husband and I like it either way.
