Classic Apple Crisp

Hello! Am I too late for a fall apple recipe? It's only January, after all. We've had lots going on here in the D-oh much so that blogging has kind of taken a back seat. Nothing earth-shattering, unfortunately, just life happening.

Back in November I found this amazing apple crisp recipe on Pinterest. It think it may be the best apple crisp I've ever had. And I've made plenty of crisps over the years.

Best of all, it's a really easy recipe! Good for a quick dessert when you don't have a lot of time to invest.

Start by tossing 9 or 10 peeled, sliced apples with some sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, flour, and salt. Put the apples into a greased 9 x 13 baking dish.

Next, mix some brown sugar, oats, and flour in a bowl; cut in some cold butter, then sprinkle it over the apple mixture.

I made mine gluten-free. (We have some family members who have gone gluten-free, so I'm trying to learn some new recipes along with adapting old ones.)

Pop the whole thing in the oven for about 40 minutes, serve with vanilla ice cream and enjoy!

Seriously, this was really, really good. Especially with Winesap apples from the local orchard. Yum.

Here's the recipe:


For the Apples:

· 9-10 large apples, peeled, cored and sliced
· ¾ cup sugar
· 2 tablespoons flour
· 1 teaspoon cinnamon
· ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
· ¼ teaspoon salt

For the Topping:

· 1 cup flour
· 1 cup brown sugar
· ½ cup oats
· ½ cup butter (1 stick) cut into 1-inch pieces
· Vanilla ice cream, for serving


1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Grease a large casserole dish or 9 x 13-inch glass baking dish.

2. In a large bowl, combine the apple slices, sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Toss to coat the apples and transfer to the prepared baking dish.

3. To make the topping, combine the flour, brown sugar and oats in a medium bowl. Add the butter pieces, and with your fingers, rub the butter in the mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle this mixture over the apples.

4. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until the topping is crisp and golden and the inside is warm and bubbly.

5. Let sit for about 30 minutes before serving with vanilla ice cream

Well, that's all for today.
