One of my favourite fall desserts is one that I’ve been making for as long as I can remember. Probably because it’s super easy to make, so when I was little my mom could just leave me to do it without having to help me with something every 5 minutes. And what is it? Apple crisp!
So simple to make, it’s the perfect thing to warm you up and make your house smell like cinnamon-fall-deliciousness!
So here’s what you do (complete recipe is at the bottom of this post):
Peel, core, and chop 4 cups of apple (1 apple = 1 cup). I usually go with Macintosh apples for baking. Then add sugar and cinnamon and mix together until the apples are evenly coated.
To make the topping mix together brown sugar, flour, and rolled oats. Add softened margarine and blend it with a pastry blender until it gets crumbly. If it seems to dry then just keep mixing! It will start to blend together eventually. You could also half the topping measurements if you don’t like your crisp super sweet. This recipe makes pretty much equal amount of apple filling and topping.
When it’s ready pour the apple mix into a greased 8×8 baking dish, and add the crumble on top of that. Then just pop it in the oven for 40-50 minutes at 350° to bake.
You’ll know it’s done when the top is golden brown and the apples are soft (test with a fork to find out). Let it cool for a bit, and serve it up with ice cream! Yum!
