It’s What’s Cookin’? Wednesday!
I don’t think there’s anything that screams FALL like APPLES do… apple cider, apple butter, taffy apples, apple pie, and apple crisp!
There are TONS of recipes on the Internet for apple crisp… and I think I’ve probably tried a good portion of them over the years. A lot of recipes use rolled oats, and even though that’s now a staple in our home, it wasn’t in the past.
That’s one of the reasons why I love THIS recipe! The ingredients (minus the apples, of course) are something I always have on-hand!
For best results, use a couple different variety of apples... sweet, sour, juicy... mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm... they're ALL good!
- 4 cups sliced apples (3-4 apples, depending on size)
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1-1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 1/2 cup butter ( softened )
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees
- Coat an 8x8 or 9x9 baking dish with cooking spray
- Peel, core, and slice apples
- Layer apples in the prepared baking dish and drizzle with 1/2 cup water
- Sprinkle half the cinnamon (3/4 teaspoon) over the apples
- Cream butter and sugar with mixer - gradually add flour to create a "crumbly" mixture
- Distribute crumbled mixture over the apples
- Sprinkle with remaining (3/4 teaspoon) cinnamon
- Bake uncovered until apples are tender and crust is golden brown (about 30-40 minutes)
- Cool slightly and serve warm
This simple recipe is just packed with flavor… and makes the house smell ohhhhhhhhh so good! I normally double the recipe for a 9×13 baking dish and it’s always gone the next day!
And whoever invented that little handy-dandy contraption to peel, slice, AND core the apples in one-shot is a GENIUS! It sure does make all these apple recipes sooooooooooo much easier to throw together 😉
