Apple crisp is a great way to kick off Fall. Growing up, my Grandma made this regularly and it was one of my absolute favorites. This may actually be my great-grandmother’s recipe. The recipe card from my Mom says it comes from Grandmother Wilcox. I never knew her but isn’t it wonderful that her recipe is still a favorite even three generations later?
This is such a simple recipe. Easy with no complicated steps or flavors. I make this at least once every fall. The only thing that takes a bit of time is peeling and cutting the apples (and that’s not bad).
A couple of little gadgets help with the apples. My mom got me this one year as a gift. It looks like a weird torture device but allows you to peel an apple in a couple seconds. It has a very creative name as you can see below.
The other helpful little gadget can be found in any grocery store – an apple corer/slicer.
The recipe couldn’t be easier. Here goes.
Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. Take out and admire your golden brown, crispy, delicious smelling creation.
8 cups diced apples in greased baking dish. Sprinkle with lemon if necessary.
Mix together (I increase the below by half – depends how much crisp you want):
- 1 cup flour
- 1 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- I also add a few shakes of cinnamon here (not in the recipe)
Break in a 1 egg with fork. Finish with fingertips.
Sprinkle crumb over apples.
Pour 1/2 cup melted butter over top.
Sprinkle with cinnamon.
Bake at 350 for 40 mins.
