Recipe: Apple Crisp

I haven’t posted a recipe in quite a while! I thought it was time to share one of my all-time favorites, Apple Crisp! Nothing smells better baking in the oven than warm apples! Okay, I would never say “no,” to cookies either.

Typically, I make this recipe in the fall with apples from a local orchard, but I was late this year due to moving to our new place! But really, this Apple Crisp tastes wonderful all year round. This time, I made it with Granny Smith apples, which are tart and my absolute favorite, but in the past I have used McIntosh or Red Delicious and even a mixture of several different kinds of apples. The type of apples you use will change the taste, but I’ve never had an Apple Crisp that I didn’t like.

The worst part of making this recipe is peeling and slicing all of the apples, but with an apple corer, it goes fairly fast. Plus, it’s well worth the effort.

Once you have peeled and sliced your apples, line them up on the bottom of the pan. It should look something like this:

Next, it’s time to prepare the crumble. Mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, and unbeaten eggs until they are crumbly. Be careful not to over-mix this or your Apple Crisp won’t be very crumbly; I can say this with certainty, as I’ve been guilty of over-mixing many times! I often use my hands and try to form the crumbles by “clumping” it together.

 

 

Pour the crumbles over the apples. Then pour melted and cooled butter over the crumbs. Sprinkle with cinnamon and add walnuts. I usually go heavier on the cinnamon and the walnuts than what the recipe calls for, as I love cinnamon and the flavor the walnuts add! I’ve had the recipe without walnuts before, when I forgot to buy them, and the recipe just isn’t the same.

Bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes. If baking in a glass pan, lower the temperature by 25 degrees to 325 degrees.

This is how your Apple Crisp looks when it’s fresh out of the oven! Looks delicious, right? I love to serve it warm with vanilla ice cream or with whipped cream on top, but really it’s just as good plain! And of course, it goes great with a cup of coffee and a book!
