Apple crisp

Apple crisp


On the night we went apple picking, we didn’t get home until 8 or 9 o’clock at night. That doesn’t sound late, but we’re old and we work all the time, and it was late to us. But I was so excited to have so many apples, I made this crisp right away. That should tell you a couple of things. 1.) This crisp is so fast and easy to put together, that I’m not even sure it counts as baking. 2.) The apples are the stars of this dish. I wanted something that burst with all the freshly picked apple flavor, and that’s what I got.

And of course, this recipe is adapted from the Amish apple cookbook I keep bringing up. (Obviously, I love this cookbook, you guys.)

So I started by using my apple machine (video on how it works here) to peel, slice and core about six large apples. I threw those in the bottom of a greased 8-inch by 8-inch glass square baking dish. Then I mixed up the topping, first by combining some uncooked oats, flour, brown sugar and apple pie spice.


I made a well in the center of the mixture and poured in some melted butter to the mixture and mixed it until the mixture was moist.


I spread it over the apples and popped it in the oven.


Done. Easy peasy. The topping just gets a little brown and crispy.


And then you can scoop individual servings out with a spoon!
