Apple Crisp - Perfect and Easy

Recipe by  

"I adapted this from a 50-year-old peach crisp recipe. Although it works well with peaches, it works even better with fresh, crisp cooking apples."

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease an 8-inch square baking dish.
  2. Arrange apple slices evenly in prepared baking dish. Sift flour, sugar, cinnamon, and salt in a bowl. Cut in butter using a pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse cornmeal; sprinkle over apples.
  3. Bake in preheated oven until topping is golden, 40 to 45 minutes. Cool slightly before serving.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • Do not overmix the topping, and NEVER cream it. The topping should be gently cut into the butter so that the butter remains in small lumps. This will result in a light, crunchy topping for the apples. Also, in a pinch, you don't need to sift the dry ingredients. Just carefully stir them together until mixed (prior to adding the butter).

This is a remarkably quick, easy and satisfying dessert to make. If you have a couple of apples on hand you could have dessert on a whim! I loved that it didn't contain oatmeal or water and the topping was excellent - buttery with a nice crispy crunch as it should. But... there was too much of it for the amount of apples, which made it seem much too sweet. Unfortunately there was no way I could use it all and I discarded the excess. I think adding half again as many apples would be an improvement that would elevate this to 5-star status.

Finally, apple crisp like MY grandma made! No oatmeal, nuts, or fancy things...just simple pantry staples and fresh, homemade taste. :) This is wonderful, easy, and quickly made. You can pop this in the oven while you eat dinner, and by the time you finish dinner and clear the dishes, it's ready.

I was really impressed! This recipe seemed so simple and required only a few ingredients, so I didn't expect it to turn out very well. It really WAS simple and easy...but it turned out delicious! This will be a last-minute dessert favorite in the future!!

Loved it- reason giving it 4 stars vs. 5 is it is light on apples. I used 8 small/medium apples and that was a perfect ratio for the topping provided. I also added a little vanilla to the topping and extra cinnamon because we like it. This recipe is simple and delicious. I love apple crisp that doesn't contain oatmeal!
