Now that it's not blazing hot outside, I get to use my oven more often. Today's treat is a delicious apple crisp that will curl your toes. You know how people selling their houses will bake cookies to help make the place smell like a home? The smell of this apple crisp could make a back alley smell like grandma's. I got the recipe from here, and if you haven't tried it, you absolutely must. Let's get started!
- 10 Cups Apples [about 8-10 medium sized apples]
- 1 Cup Sugar
- 1 Tablespoon Flour
- 1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
- 1/2 Cup Water
- 1/2 Cup Raisins [optional]
- 1 Cup of Quick Cooking Oats
- 1 Cup Flour
- 1 Cup Packed Brown Sugar
- 1/4 Teaspoon Baking Powder
- 1/4 Teaspoon Baking Soda
- 1/2 Cup [1 stick] Melted Butter
Wash all apples, then peel [I chose to omit this step *lazy*], core, and slice into pieces.
Place the chopped apples in a 9x13 baking dish. Mix together 1 cup of sugar, 1 tablespoon flour, and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon and sprinkle over apples. Evenly pour the 1/2 cup water over the entire apple mixture. [If you wish to add raisins like I did, now would be a good time to add them on top of the apples.]
Mix the remaining ingredients together and crumble on top of the sugary apple pieces.
Bake at 350°F for 45 minutes. [If the result is too watery for your liking, I suggest pour the juices over the top of the crumbled mixture.]
This would be a great substitution for apple pie come Thanksgiving. I hope you enjoy!
