My All-Time Favorite Apple Crisp Recipe
|Classic Apple Crisp|
So, how do I make my apple crisp's crumble topping? It is a simple mixture of flour, sugar and butter mixed together with my fingers to make the crumbles. As the crisp bakes, the topping becomes golden brown, crunchy and in my opinion, perfect. Serve this apple crisp warm with vanilla ice cream and you'll have a classic family dessert. Recently, I was talking about the simple deliciousness of this dessert with my brother and he pointed out to me that I had not included the recipe on this blog. I couldn't believe it. How was it possible I had overlooked one of my favorite desserts of all time? Today I rectify that oversight.

- 6-8 apples, a mixture of crisp, fragrant varieties
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1-1/2 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup cold water
- juice of half a lemon
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 stick unsalted butter
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Butter a deep dish pie pan. Pare and slice the apples into the pan. You'll want the apples to create a high mound in the pan. Squeeze the lemon juice over the apples. Combine the cinnamon, salt, and 1-1/2 tablespoons of sugar and sprinkle the mixture over the apples. Pour the water over the mixture.
To make the crumble topping, combine one cup of granulated sugar, flour, and butter together in a medium bowl. Using your fingers, squeeze the ingredients together and toss them to create a well combined, crumbly mixture. Spread the topping over the apples. Bake on the center rack of your oven for 45-50 minutes until the topping is browned and crunchy. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.
