Get the Recipe: Apple Crisp

Ingredients

Gather apples (any variety you fancy) and your topping ingredients: rolled oats, flour, brown sugar, salt, cold butter and toasted pecans (optional).

 

 

Whisk and Stir the Ingredients

Whisk together the dry ingredients in a medium bowl. Coarsely chop the butter and stir it in.

Rub the Butter

Rub the butter between your fingertips while it’s still cold, creating even, pea-size pieces.

Assemble the Crisp

Peel, core and cut the apples into large wedges, then spread them in a buttered baking dish. Scatter the topping evenly over the apples. 

Bake Until Brown

Place the crisp on a sheet pan and bake until the top is brown, the apples are bubbly and tender (pierce one with a fork to test) and the smell is incredible.

Serve

Serve the crisp a la mode with vanilla ice cream or your favorite flavor.
