Apple Crisp

Apple Crisp

This tasty dessert is sweet, tart, and full of cinnamon goodness. The sweet, sticky syrup that forms when the sugar meets the apples is absolutely awesome, and I love how the crispy, crunchy texture of the streusely topping contrasts with the softness of the baked apples.

This recipe is based off of one of the apple crisp recipes posted on allrecipes.com:

Apple Crisp

Filling:
1 c sugar
1 tbsp (8 g) all-purpose flour
1 tbsp ground cinnamon
1/2 c water
10 c honeycrisp apples (peeled, cored and sliced)

Topping:
2 c (280 g) all-purpose flour
2 c old-fashioned oats
2 c brown sugar (packed)
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 c butter (melted)

1. Preheat the oven to 350°.

2. To create the filling, mix the sugar, flour, cinnamon, and water together in a large bowl until well combined. Add the apples and toss until the apples are well coated in the sugar mixture.

3. To create the topping, place the oats, flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and melted butter into a medium bowl. Work the mixture together with your hands until it is well combined.

4. Place the apples into a 9 x 13 pan and evenly sprinkle the topping over them.

5. Bake for 45 minutes, or until the apples are bubbly and the topping is golden brown.
Notes:
  • You can make this recipe a bit healthier by halving the amount of topping. The finished crisp won't be as rich, but it will still be really tasty.
