Greetings! Happy Fall again, and especially Happy October, my favorite month of the year! The apple happiness continues today, with an apple crisp recipe.
Crisps are wonderful. They are easy, and a great thing to do with all kinds of fresh fruit. I make them in the winter too, using frozen fruit. Warm out of the oven, this apple crisp has an apple pie kind of flavor, but with buttery crispiness all over. Perfect for a big scoop of vanilla ice cream! I’d make some today but I’m still eating yesterday’s apple cake. I love apple desserts!
Peel, core, and thinly slice 3 large sweet apples. My honey crisps are perfect for this. You should have about 3 cups. Arrange them in a 2qt casserole dish lightly greased or sprayed. If you have over 3 cups, eat the extra!
Now, in a medium bowl, whisk 1C flour, 1C sugar, 1t cinnamon, 1/2t nutmeg, and a pinch each of salt and cloves. Using a pastry blender or 2 knives, cut in 1 stick cold cubed butter til you have coarse crumbs. The Kitchen Aid food processor pulsed a few times does this well also.
Sprinkle that amazing concoction all over the apples. In an oven preheated to 375 F, bake about 45 minutes til golden and bubbly. Cool on a rack 15 minutes before serving. Plop a scoop of vanilla ice cream on each serving.
Oh heck, maybe I will just make this heavenly dessert today anyway! I still want to lose 5 pounds, and this is not going to help!
I hope you enjoy today’s apple offering!
Love, Grammy ❤
