You all need to visit Jen's blog. It is so awesome as she is. For today's Tasty Tuesday, I love apple crisp and wanted to make some for the family last week.
Start with 10 McIntosh apples. I added 2 T lemon juice to keep them from turning brown.
Add one cup of sugar, 4 t. ground cinnamon and 2 t. ground nutmeg.
Stir the apples and put in greased baking dish.
Cover with the topping: 3 c. flour, 1 1/2 cup of light brown sugar lightly packed, and 1 1/2 c. of granulated sugar, 1 t. kosher salt, 1 pound of cold unsalted butter, diced. and 2 c. oatmeal. The oatmeal gives the apple crisp a real country flavor and provides a wonderful crunch to the apple crisp.
It sounds like a lot of ingredients but it makes a large dish. You can adapt this recipe to half or quarter of the amount, easily. Look how pretty.
Oh yes, much better!!!
- 10 McIntosh or Macoun apples
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 2 T. lemon juice
- 4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 3 cups flour
- 1 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1 1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 2 cup oatmeal
- 1 pound cold unsalted butter, diced
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Butter baking dish. Peel, core, and cut the apples into large wedges. Combine the apples, lemon juice, sugar, and spices. Pour into the dish.
To make the topping, combine the flour, sugars, salt, oatmeal, and cold butter in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix on low speed until the mixture is crumbly and the butter is the size of peas. Scatter evenly over the apples.
Place the crisp on a sheet pan and bake for 1 hour until the top is brown and the apples are bubbly. Serve warm.
