As American As Apple Crisp
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

Apple Crisp

Ingredients

  1. 2 pounds of apple, peeled, cored, and chopped
  2. 1 lemon, juiced
  3. 1/2 cup flour
  4. 1/4 cup brown sugar
  5. 1/4 cup sugar
  6. 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  7. 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
  8. 1/4 teaspoon cardamon
  9. 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
  10. Pinch of salt
  11. 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
  12. 1/2 cup walnuts roasted and coarsely chopped

Directions

  1. 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.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamon, oats, and salt.
  3. 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.
  4. Butter a deep baking pan. Place the apples on the bottom and gently pack the crisp mixture on top.
  5. 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.

If you are like me and not big on cooking then Marie Calendar's Apple Crisp pie is wonderful! I had it two months ago and I'm dying for more.

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.

You don't add flour or sugar to the apples to thicken the juice that bakes out?

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.
