Old-Fashioned Apple Crisp
This is so yummy! I made it in individual dishes, but it can be made in a 2-qt. casserole dish also. Serve with ice cream while it is still slightly warm.
- 2 1/2 pounds apples (any apple will work, I used Pink Lady because that is what I had on hand)
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
- 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/2 cup oatmeal (I used quick, but you can use old-fashioned if you like)
- 1 stick (8 tablespoons) unsalted butter, diced
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter you serving dish or dishes.
Peel, core, and cut apples into large chunks. Combine apples with lemon juice, sugar and spices. Pour into the dish or dishes.
To make topping, combine flour, sugars, salt, oatmeal and cold butter in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix on low speed until mixture is crumbly and the butter is the size of peas. Scatter evenly over the apples.
Place the crisp on a sheet pan and bake for one hour until the top is brown and the apples are bubbly. Serve warm.
Makes 6 servings.
