My mom has been making this yummy Apple Crisp for as long as I can remember.
She got the recipe from a newspaper clipping & I've only seen one other similar recipe.
This Crisp recipe does not have oatmeal, but does have a yummy, crunchy topping.
In addition to being yummy, it is also super easy to throw together.
4 cups apples, pared and sliced (4-5 medium apples)
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 cup water
1 tsp. lemon juice
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup flour
1/3 cup butter, softened to room temperature
Place sliced apples in a buttered casserole dish or 9x13 pan (glass is best).
Sprinkle with spices.
Combine water and lemon juice and pour over the top.
Work together the flour, sugar and butter until it resembles coarse crumbs.
(You can use a pastry cutter, a mixer, or just do it by hand)
Spread evenly over the apples.
Do not cover.
Bake @ 350 until apples are tender
Approx. 45 minutes to 1 hour.
*Use a good baking apple!
And there are lots of differing opinions on this!
Try Granny Smith, McIntosh, Roman Beauty, Cortland or Gala apples.
*Use a potato peeler to peel the apples. It is so much easier than peeling with a knife. This is my new favorite cooking tip...thank you Internet!
*I always just combine the crisp part by hand. This is one of the first things I remember my mom teaching me to make. :)
