Start to Finish: 60 minutes Servings: 4 to 6 Difficulty Level: Beginner
No matter when you prepare apple crisp, it will always taste like autumn because of the delicately spiced apples that have been cooked down till they melt in your mouth and the buttery, sweet, and crispy oatmeal topping. Golden Delicious and Granny Smith apples are two of your best options, though you can use any apple variety in this recipe.
Filling 5 large or 6 medium apples 1 tablespoon cornstarch 2 tablespoons white sugar 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon Juice and zest of 1/2 lemon 1 teaspoon unsalted butter, softened
Topping 1/2 cup packed brown sugar 1/2 cup white flour 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats 1 teaspoon cinnamon 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg 1/4 teaspoon salt * 5 tablespoons unsalted butter, cold
Prepare the Filling
The oven should be heated to 375 degrees.
Peel, core, and wash the apples. Slice the apples into roughly 1/2-inch-thick pieces. Put the slices in a big basin. Cornstarch, sugar, cinnamon, lemon juice, and zest are all added. The sugar mixture should be distributed evenly over the apples after stirring.
Spread the butter evenly over the bottom and edges of an 8-by-8-inch or 9-by-9-inch glass baking dish using clean fingertips. Place the apple slices there.
Creating the topping and assembling
The first six topping ingredients should be combined in a clean basin. Butter should be added. To incorporate the butter into the dry ingredients and create coarse crumbs, use a pastry blender or fork.
Alternative: Use your food processor to make the topping. The dry ingredients should be added and given a brief period of time to blend in the processor. When the mixture has the right consistency, add the butter and pulse the mixture.
Over the apple slices, evenly distribute the oat topping. Bake the dish for 35 to 45 minutes, or until the apples are tender when poked with a knife and the crust is a deep golden color.
Give the crisp 10 to 15 minutes to cool. Whipping cream or vanilla ice cream are good toppings.
Tips and Suggestions
- Apples and oats go well together with berries and almonds. A cup of blueberries or mixed berries can be added to the apple filling, or you can add 1/2 cup of pecans that have been chopped and lightly toasted to the crumb topping.
- Instead of using a bigger baking dish, serve apple crisp in individual dishes using ramekins.
- Apple crisp can be stored in the fridge for up to three days. To bring the topping back to being crunchy, always reheat it in the oven; 10 minutes at 350 degrees should do the trick. Unbaked apple crisps can be frozen for up to six months. Use plastic wrap and a layer of thick aluminum foil to tightly wrap the dish.
