As I'm craving Fall (always!), this weekend I made an Apple Crisp - yum. It is basically baked apples with a giant oatmeal cookie on top. Not really, but the 'crisp' dough is almost exactly like a cookie recipe... so, yes, it was great. I used granny smith apples which I thought we the perfect tart variety to use.
3 Granny Smith Apples, peeled, sliced
1 tablespoon of orange juice
1/2 cup of sugar
2 teaspoons of cinnamon
Butter a pie plate. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Toss together the apples, orange juice, sugar & cinnamon. Pour into the pie plate.
1 1/2 cup of flour
3/4 cup of sugar
3/4 cup of brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1 cup of oatmeal
2 sticks of butter
For the topping, place the flour, sugars, salt, oatmeal and butter into the mixing bowl. Beat on low speed until the mix is crumbly. Scatter over the apples.
Bake for 45-50 minutes until the top starts to brown. Serve warm with ice cream.
