Apple crisp is one of those desserts that makes me think of fall. I like it just as much as apple pie, and I think it’s even easier to make even though pie isn’t that hard. If you have an apple corer/peeler/slicer, your prep will be almost effortless.
Preheat the oven to 375 and grease an 8 X 8 dish.
Peel, core, and slice thin:
5 c. apples
Place the apples in the dish and sprinkle over the top:
2 T. sugar
In a separate bowl, prepare the topping. Use a pastry blender to cut the butter into the dry ingredients until it is in small chunks.
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. oatmeal
4 T. flour
1/4 t. cinnamon
4 T. cold butter, cut into several smaller pieces to make the process easier
When your topping is ready, sprinkle it over the apples in the pan and bake it for 30 minutes at 375.
Serve the apple crisp warm or cold with vanilla ice cream or cream. (I wouldn’t normally make a dessert and ice cream on the same day, but if you’re up for it, homemade vanilla ice cream is fantastic with this recipe.)
