Apple Crisp: What is not to Love?
Apple Crisp-so good!
Planning a family get together or a casual dinner party? This yummy apple crisp dish is simple to prepare and can be made earlier in the day and reheated when you are ready. WOW! Start by setting the oven to 350. Now:
In a medium bowl mix whisk then set aside:
- 1 1/2 cup of water
- 3/4 cup light brown sugar packed.
- 2 teaspoons white flour.
- 1/2 stick melted butter
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon fresh graded nutmeg. You can use store bought nutmeg but I love my new nutmeg grinder.
Wash, peal, and slice in uniform pieces 4 cups apples. I love using 2 cups sweet cooking apple like Golden Delicious, Courtland, Jonagold and 2 cups Granny Smith. This makes a wonderful mix of sweet and tart. Arrange the apples in a 9x2 baking pan.
In a medium bowl mix:
- 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 1/2 cup regular flour.
- 1 1/2 cup regular oat meal.
- 1 cup crushed walnuts. Really this is optional but the nuts just seem to add flavor and texture.
- 1 stick of butter at room temperature.
Blend the dry ingredient with a fork or your fingers to make a nice crumb like mixture and set aside.
Pour the liquid mixture over the apples then sprinkle the crumb mixture making sure the top is evenly covered.
Bake for about 1 hour. Top each serving with vanilla ice cream or real whipped cream. One apple crisp dish will serve 6 to 8 depending how many apple lovers you have in your family.
