You can also use this tantalizing recipe to make peach crisp (which I HIGHLY recommend.) Very easy and delightful. At its best when served hot. Use fresh fruit whenever possible.
- 8 apples or 8 peaches, peeled
- 1 1⁄2 cups brown sugar
- 1 cup flour
- 1 cup oats
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1⁄2 cup cold butter
- Heat oven to 375°F.
- Lightly grease a 13x9 glass pan.
- Cut fruit into slices (removing pit or seeds) and layer in bottom of pan.
- Mix dry ingredients in a medium sized bowl and then cut in butter with a pastry cutter (cut until crumbly).
- Sprinkle mixture over fruit.
- Bake for 30-35 minutes.
- Top should be browned.
- Serve with ice cream or whipped cream.
This was an excellent apple crisp. I chose it because it served 8 instead of 4 or 6, but I will make it again because it was so good. The flavors were jusr right and I liked that it wasn't syrupy. The fresh apple taste came through clearly. I used 7 large apples and it made 10 - 12 large servings for me. . Thanks so much!
This is good, but I'm embarrassed to say I would have preferred cinnamon only, rather than the cinnamon/nutmeg mix here. I have enjoyed these same two spices in these proportions in a quick bread, so expected to like them here, too. The apple crisp is also quite sweet - this may have been my fault for not allowing for the sweetness of the fuji apples I used. Thank you for helping me define my preferences.
Out of all the apple crisp recipes I've tried, this is the BEST!!!!!!! Great fruit to topping ratio and the topping came out nice and crunchy and the apples weren't mushy. This is the only apple crisp recipe I will use from now on!!!!!
