Apple Crisp An Old Fashioned Dessert.
Apple Crisp is a go to recipe when we have an abundance of apples. This year we foraged so many apples that we promised we’d share all our best recipes with you. We like to make a batch of these crisps and freeze them so we can grab one and bake it off at a moment’s notice.
Today’s recipe makes 4 mini crisps or it will make one family size. Lets get started.
TwoFoodNuts Apple Crisp:
- 3 lbs of apples, peeled, cored and sliced into thick slices
- 1/2 cup flour
- 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/4 allspice
- 1/1 tsp cinnamon
- 2 Tbsp cold butter cut into little cubes
Peel, core and slice the apples, place in a large bowl and add all but the butter. Divide into 4 mini foil loaf pans or place in one deep casserole for a single dessert. Dot each crisp with the little butter cubes.
For the topping:
- 1 cup of quick cooking Oatmeal. (not instant)
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1/3 cup cold butter cut into 1/2 inch pieces
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
Place everything in a bowl and rub the butter into the flour and sugar to form crumbs. ( you can use a food processor to do this)
Sprinkle the crumb topping onto the fruit filling and cover with cling film and foil if freezing or pop into the oven at 350F until the filling bubbles up through the crumbs. This can take from 40 minutes to an hour depending on the size of the crisp.
Top with freshly whipped cream or quality ice cream and serve.
Cooks Tip: Sometimes when we want to change it up a bit, we use a can of cherry pie filling on top of the apple filling. It bakes into the apples and gives you a most amazing Apple/Cherry crisp. It’s a great way to use a stock recipe but add variety! Try it
