This is the best apple crisp recipe I have ever tried. I found it somewhere on the internet. It is good plain, or with ice-cream of whipped cream.
- 5 -6 tart apples, peeled, cored and sliced
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 2 tablespoons lightly packed brown sugar
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted
- 3⁄4 cup flour, plus
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 6 tablespoons oatmeal
- 7 tablespoons sugar
- 7 tablespoons lightly packed brown sugar
- 12 tablespoons butter, cut in small pieces
- Preheat oven to 375°F.
- Put apples, sugars, and cinnamon in a 1 1/2 quart casserole dish.
- Stir to combine.
- Let sit about 20 minutes until some juice is released from the apples.
- Combine flour, oatmeal and sugars.
- Mix in the butter until it resembles coarse crumbs.
- Pour melted 2 tbsp butter over apple mixture in the casserole.
- Sprinkle with topping mixture.
- Bake 30-40 minutes until topping is golden and filling is bubbling.
- Serve warm or at room temperature.
We did not add the 2 tablespoons of melted butter, and cut back on the butter in the topping to 8 tablespoons. we cut back on the white sugar in the topping to 4 tablespoons, and it was still great! I think I will do more sugar next time, and a small sprinkle of salt in the topping, as it seemed to need it. We served it with half & half on top, sooo good, I will make this again and again. Don't be afraid to cut the butter some, if you are watching your diet like us!
Absolutely wonderful - didn't change a thing. DH is a very picky eater and he loved it. Was even better the next day!
Update 7/22/2012 I make this so often now that I can almost do it with my eyes closed. All the grown kids request it! Never can make one pan anymore! I really don't think you can mess this recipe up! Since I make it so much now, I hardly measure anything! Have added nuts, have used blueberries, apples and peaches. Have some fresh picked huckleberries, guess how I'm gonna use them!!!!
This was awesome! I had a bunch of apples that I had just picked, so they were sweet - I cut back on the white sugar by about 2-3 T total and it was still great. I also skipped drizzling the apples themselves in butter to save some cals. I only used three apples because the ones I had were huge. Fabulous. Thanks for the recipe!!!<br/><br/>Edit: I've made this about a dozen times since my first review. I always omit the butter over the apples and haven't ever missed it. I also usually take off 1T of white sugar from both the apples and topping. I add about three handfuls of finely chopped pecans to the topping and sometimes cut the butter by 1T in the topping. I also add a bit of nutmeg. I just reread the other reviews and I agree that it could use a few more T of oatmeal as well.<br/><br/>Great recipe. Every time I make it for company I get compliments, especially when served with french vanilla ice cream.
