First Day of Fall…Apple Crisp

I am back with my second apple themed recipe for the week…Apple Crisp!

This was a delicious way to celebrate the first day of fall.

 

The Ingredients:

Apple…

10-12 medium tart apples (I used McIntosh)

1 cup white sugar (I use organic evaporate cane juice)

2 teaspoons cinnamon

3 tablespoons flour

Crisp…

1 cup rolled oats

1 cup flour

1 cup packed brown sugar

1/4 tsp baking soda

1/4 teaspoon baking powder

1 stick (1/2 cup) melted butter

 

 

The Instructions:

 

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.

 

Peel, core and slice your apples…

enough to fill an 11x13 baking dish.

Sprinkle with white sugar, cinnamon…

and 3 tablespoons of flour.

Gently mix the apples with a fork…or your hands…or a combination of both…that’s what I do. You could do this in a separate bowl, then pour it into your baking dish…but I do not have a dishwasher, and did not feel like washing an extra dish.

Combine all of the “crisp” ingredients, except the butter, in a medium size mixing bowl (you will need a separate bowl for this). Stir gently with a fork.

Pour the melted butter over your crisp mixture, and combine the ingredients with your fork, until well incorporated and crumbly.

Crumble evenly over the apple mixture.

This is a great job for kids! As you can see… my daughter LOVES helping me bake.

Ready for the oven!

Bake for 40 minutes, or until the corners are thick and bubbly…

We like our Apple Crisp served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top!

And a nice cup of coffee for the adults. (Seriously…when did I become my grandparents…?! Haha!)

There is nothing yummier than warm Apple Crisp on a chilly fall evening.

 

I will be back tomorrow with another apple recipe!

  2. When you use a liquid sweetener like cane juice, do you use the same amount called for with the sugar?

    1. I use the evaporated cane juice, so it is crystallized like regular sugar:)if you use a liquid, like honey or agave, I would cut the amount a bit.
