If you have apple pie lovers in your family, apple crisp is a fast and great treat but be warned it doen’t last. Eat it while it’s still warm.
4 – 5 medium tart cooking apples roughly 4 cups
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup quick-cooking or old-fashioned oats – go with organic
1/3 cup butter, softened
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Preheat your oven to 375ºF. Grease the bottom and sides of 8-inch square pan with shortening.
Peel, core and slice the apples then spread them around the bottom of the pan. In a bowl, stir the brown sugar, flour, oats, butter, cinnamon and nutmeg until well mixed. It should take on an almost “crumble” consistency. Once done, pour the mixture over the apples.
Place the pan in the oven and bake for about 30 minutes or until topping is golden brown and apples are tender when pierced with a fork.
This is a fantastic match with vanilla ice cream and a spoonful of whip cream. Apple crisp is a dessert that needs to be eaten and not stashed in the refrigerator.
To mix up the recipe try adding some honey and reducing the sugar
