I have been making this Apple Crisp, or slight variation of it, since I was a little girl. I received a cookbook for kids and this was my very favorite recipe in it. I’ve tried many recipes over the years, but this one remains my go to recipe, I don’t even bother trying others anymore. In addition to this being fantastically delicious, it is incredibly easy. Minus peeling and cutting up the apples, the rest comes together in minutes. It’s addictive it’s so good, it’s very difficult to resist eating it all when it is in the house.
Apples are one of my favorite fruits. They are something we eat year round. This recipe feels like fall, so that is when we make it most often. Plus we can visit the local apple orchards and get fresh apples off the tree to make batches of this come September. Irresistible.
Apple Crisp Recipe
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- ½ cup flour
- ½ cup oats
- ½ cup cold butter
- 4 cups apples, cored, peeled and sliced
- 2 tsp. cinnamon
- ½ tsp. ground nutmeg
- ½ lemon, juice squeezed
- ¼ cup water
- 1 tsp. vanilla
Mix the sugar, flour and oats together. Using a pastry blender, cut butter into the mixture.
Core, peel and slice the apples. Fill a square 8 x 8 pan. Sprinkle with cinnamon and nutmeg. Combine water, lemon juice and vanilla and then pour over the top of the apples and spices. Cover entire top of apples with the topping.
Bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes, until golden brown. Serve warm.
