This recipe is one of the easiest. My least favorite part of any crisp recipe is cutting in cold butter into the flour and oats to make the crumble. This recipe uses melted butter!! Alleluia!!
Here's the recipe below, but if you want to see the original...click here for Allrecipes site.
3 pound bag of apples, peeled, cored and sliced. I always use Gala or Macoun apples.
(the recipe calls for 10 cups of apples, but the 3 pound bag was perfect...no measuring!!
1 cup white sugar
1 Tablespoon flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup water
1 cup quick cooking oats
1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup butter (one stick), melted
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place sliced apples in a 13x9 pan. Mix white sugar, flour and cinnamon and sprinkle over apples and coat them well. Pour water in pan.
In a separate bowl, mix all topping ingredients together. Spread crumble mixture evenly over apples.
Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.
Serve warm or cold. Warm is the best with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream!!
Another gadget that I have been using most all my married life is this wonderful tool...an apple peeler. I don't even know where I purchased it, but I never make an apple pie or crisp without it.
You attach it to your counter or table with the twist up tension plate. You simply pull back on the main arm, attach the apple in the core area and turn away. The blade goes up against the apple and peels it as it's traveling through another blade that cores and slices it. One motion peels, slices and cores it!
I was thinking about making a quick video the next time I make a pie or crisp to show just how this little beauty works! We'll see how it goes...not much of a film maker... Lol
Enjoy the recipe,
