One of our very first posts was a peach-raspberry crisp, which was an amazing summer dessert. Now that it’s fall, we’ve moved onto apple crisp. The topping is exactly the same, but the filling is different and perfect for autumn.
4 tbsp. butter
3/4 c. flour
3/4 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. oats
1 tsp. cinnamon
5-6 granny smith apples
2 tbsp. lemon juice
2 tbsp. flour
1 tsp. of pumpkin spice OR 1 tsp. of cinnamon and 1/4 tsp. ground cloves
In a small bowl, combine all topping ingredients. We found that cutting up the butter and then mushing it in with our hands was the best way to get the desired texture. It should be very crumbly and have small chunks, but no particularly large pieces.
Peel and chop apples into 1-inch sized pieces. In a separate bowl, add all filling ingredients and mix.
Pour the filling into an ungreased 8×8 pan. Spoon filling on top evenly. Make sure to get the edges and corners! Bake at 350 for 45-50 minutes, or until bubbling and golden brown.
