Anyways. Apple crisp. Fall is here in Minnesota and that means I've only been thinking about all the fall flavors- pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, and of course- apples. My mom and I make apple crisp every year with just a recipe from the Better Homes and Gardens cookbook. But now that I'm older, I tweak it just a tiny bit, by doubling the topping, and adding a little more spice. So I hope you enjoy!
What you'll need:
- 5 cups sliced and peeled apples (My mom yelled at me for not peeling the apples. It really didn't make a difference, I swear. More protein?)
- 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 1 cup regular rolled oats
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1 stick butter
It looks yummy enough, right?
-Preheat oven to 375 degrees
-Place fruit in square baking dish and stir in sugar
-To make topping: In a bowl, combine oats, brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Cut in butter until mixture looks like coarse crumbs. Sprinkle topping over the fruit.
-Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until the topping is golden and fruit is tender. Top with caramel and vanilla ice cream if desired. (who wouldn't desire that? I mean... Really?)
