Why I Love This Recipe
I stole this recipe from J.R.’s mom. She makes the BEST apple crisp.
Ingredients You'll Need
6 medium Granny Smith or 12 small macintosh apples, peeled, cored, and sliced 1/4 inch thick
3 T. granulated sugar
3/4 t. ground cinnamon
1/4 t. fine salt
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1 cup uncooked rolled oats
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 stick butter, cut into small pieces
Heat the oven to 350°F and arrange a rack in the middle. Lightly coat an 8-by-8-inch baking dish with butter.
Combine the apples, granulated sugar, cinnamon, and 1/8 teaspoon of the salt in a large bowl and toss to coat. Set apples aside. In another bowl, mix together the brown sugar, oats, flour, and remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt until evenly combined. With your fingertips, blend in the butter pieces until small clumps form and the butter is well incorporated, about 2 minutes.
Pour half of the streusel mixture into the bottom of the prepared baking dish and lightly press down into the pan. Add the apple mixture on top of the streusel layer, then sprinkle the remaining topping evenly over the apples and bake until the streusel is crispy and the apples are tender, about 50 to 60 minutes.
