Can you believe Thanksgiving is NEXT week?! Have you started menu planning yet? If not, look no further for your dessert! Stray away from the tradition pumpkin pie with this delicious and easy apple crisp recipe! I used to feel bad asking my mom to bake this dessert, but after making it myself, I don’t feel bad anymore! The step that takes the most time is peeling the apples, but the rest of the recipe is straightforward. Follow the recipe below!
Spray a square 9×9 or 8×8 pan
Preheat oven to 425 degrees
Apple Filling: 5 Cups Apples (I used a mix of Granny Smith and Gala)
1/2 cup sugar
1 TSP Cinnamon
2 TBSP Water
Peel, core, and thinly slice apples
Combine above ingredients in a bowl, then pour in sprayed pan
Topping: 8 TBSP or 1 stick of butter, chilled
3/4 Cup Oatmeal
2/3 Cup Flour
3/4 Cup Brown Sugar
1/2 Cup Sugar
Mix all but first ingredient together in bowl
Pour mixture into small food processor and process with butter until crumbly (may have to do this step in two batches if necessary)
Crumble topping on top of the apples
Bake at 425 degrees for 10 minutes
Turn temperature down to 350 and bake for 30-40 minutes, until apples are done
Serve apple crisp warm out of oven or at room temperature. Top with cinnamon or vanilla ice cream if desired.
