What we’re eating: apple crisp


The holidays are here, which means spending time with family, listening to music, playing games and eating lots of delicious food. If you’re looking for change from your traditional apple pie or surprise your family with a new dessert, try this apple crisp recipe. It’s the best comfort treat and the perfect mix of sweet and tangy for your holiday dessert table. 


For the apples:

-Salted butter, for the baking dish

-8 medium granny smith apples, peeled, cored and sliced

-1 cup granulated sugar

-1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

-½ teaspoon cinnamon

-¼ salt

For the topping:

-1 cup all-purpose flour

-1 cup quick-cooking oats

-1 cup packed brown sugar

-¼ teaspoon baking powder

-¼ teaspoon baking soda

-8 tablespoons salted butter, melted

-A pinch of salt


Preheat the oven to 350°F. Using butter, grease a 9×13-inch glass baking dish. 

Layer the apple slices in the baking dish. In a bowl, mix together the sugar, flour, cinnamon and salt. Sprinkle the mixture on the apples, and add ½ cup water on top. 

In a separate bowl, begin to mix the topping. Stir together the flour, oats, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda and a pinch of salt. Drizzle in the melted butter. Sprinkle the topping on top of the apples in an even layer. 

Bake the dish for about 40 minutes, or until the topping is slightly crispy and a perfect, golden brown color. 

This apple crisp tastes best when served warm, and topped with vanilla ice cream, frozen custard or a drizzle of your favorite caramel sauce. Enjoy!
