Back of As American As Apple Crisp Party must be able to predict the future, well, at least mine, because this past weekend a friend dropped off a bushel of apples! After reading through your wonderful ideas and strongly debating on making those scrumptious apple and brie nachos, I opted for a traditional, exceptionally tasty apple crisp! Like crumbles, crisps are very easy to make and require little prep work. For an extra crunchy texture, I added old-fashioned oats and freshly roasted walnuts to my crisp. Crisps are a delightful alternative to the classic, time-consuming holiday pie and are easily adaptable to include a variety of fruits. Whatever fruit you choose, always serve warm with a large dollop of whipped cream! Get started on your own and . Apple Crisp Original Recipe Ingredients2 pounds of apple, peeled, cored, and chopped 1 lemon, juiced 1/2 cup flour 1/4 cup brown sugar 1/4 cup sugar 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg 1/4 teaspoon cardamon 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats Pinch of salt 1/2 cup butter, room temperature 1/2 cup walnuts roasted and coarsely chopped Directions Preheat oven to 375°F. Chop apples into slices or bite-size pieces. In a bowl coat the apples with fresh lemon juice to prevent any discoloration. In a large bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamon, oats, and salt. Add the butter and walnuts to the flour-oatmeal mixture. Stir until the mixture resembles coarse sand. For me its easiest to use my fingers to combine the butter and oats. Butter a deep baking pan. Place the apples on the bottom and gently pack the crisp mixture on top. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until apples are cooked and topping has browned. Serve warm with a dollop of whipped cream. Serves 8-10.

I had it two months ago and I'm dying for more. hardcorecupcakex 8 years I think I may have to try this susanec 8 years Lindira, it definitely needs something with the apples because it's really juicy. I usually make pies, not crisps, and although the topping is great the apples are lacking a little oomph it seems. Which is okay, because the bf pretty much just wanted the crisp. Lindira 8 years You don't add flour or sugar to the apples to thicken the juice that bakes out? aimeeb 8 years I'm drooling. ilanac13 8 years this is exactly what i was talking about earlier in the week/weekend. i love apple crisp, and i'm more likely to have this rather than pie with the whole crust thing going on.
