Anje's Apple Crisp

READY IN: 50mins
YIELD: 1 crisp




  • preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  • peel and then slice apples into thin slices. fill your favourite pan until it's about 1/2 an inch from the top. i usually use 3-4 apples for a small glass loaf pan.
  • make sure to toss apple slices with lemon juice to prevent browning.
  • when all the apples have been cut, toss the slices with enough cinnamon to lightly coat. add a little less ginger, and then a little less nutmeg and allspice, if desired. sometimes i leave out the allspice.
  • next, make the crumble topping by combining the flour, brown sugar, and oatmeal in a bowl. add cinnamon and ginger to the topping.
  • melt the butter in the microwave and then mix with the dry ingredients. you might need a little more butter; i use enough to make sure that the topping is saturated and sticks together.
  • before adding the topping, mix in the cornstarch with the apples. this prevents the crisp from becoming runny. make sure it's well mixed inches.
  • lastly, add the topping to the apples. make sure that no apples are showing.
  • bake in the oven for about 30-45 minutes or until bubbling and the topping is browned.
  • i eat this plain, but it can be good with ice cream, whipped cream, or even chocolate sauce.
