Fall is in the air and there is nothing better than a yummy apple crisp on a cold day (90 degrees can be considered cold here in AZ, right?). My friend Gina of Legally Brunette passed along this fabulous and super easy Apple Crisp recipe that I just had to share with you. I don't know about you but I like visuals when following a recipe so I decided to document my steps as I went. Enjoy!
Large Mixing Bowl
Baking or Pie Dish
Paring Knife or Apple Corer
6 Large or 8 Medium Apples
1 Cup Flour
1 Cup Sugar
1/2 Tsp Salt
1 Tsp Ground Cinnamon
1/4 Tsp Ground Nutmeg
10 Tbsp Butter
Step 1: Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
Step 2: While your oven is preheating, start making your crumble topping. Combine 1 cup of flour, 1 cup of sugar, 1/2 tsp of salt, 1 tsp of ground cinnamon and 1/4 tsp of ground nutmeg in a large mixing bowl.
Step 3: Cut up 10 tbsp of butter and add to the mixing bowl. In order to cut out the trans fat, I used Smart Balance instead of regular butter and it still tasted yummy. I also didn't have any nutmeg so I added extra cinnamon. Don't be afraid to substitute ingredients or change a recipe.
Step 4: Using a pastry blender, blend your ingredients together until you get a crumbly consistency.
Step 5: Wash and peel your apples. You can use a paring knife to do this but a vegetable peeler is so much easier.
Step 6: Core and slice your apples. I used my nifty apple corer and this saved me so much time. I'm all about saving time in the kitchen!
Step 7: Arrange your apples inside of your baking dish and sprinkle on your crumble topping.
Step 8: Place your dish on top of a baking dish with sides and place in the oven. Bake at 375 degrees for 50-55 minutes. Stick a fork into one of the apples to make sure that it is tender.
Step 9: Serve with a dollop of whipped cream or ice cream and enjoy!
