Let me tell you from personal experience,
THIS APPLE CRISP IS AWESOME!!!
This apple recipe is so quick to throw together with no fuss. You could make it a day ahead, but you would have to hide it from your family.
Do not leave this dessert unsupervised before serving, the crunchy topping will start to disappear. If you see holes in the corners of the dessert, check the corners of your husband's lips. OH! And be sure to have vanilla ice cream on hand, it tastes great melting next to this warm dessert.
HERE'S WHAT YOU NEED
- 6 large apples, peeled, cored, sliced 1/2 inch wedges
- 1 cup dark brown sugar
- 3/4 cup flour
- 1 cup oats
- 1 stick unsalted butter
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Heat oven to 375ºF. Arrange apples in greased 13x9x2 dish. Mix remaining ingredients; sprinkle over apples. Bake until apples are tender, about 30 minutes. It's that simple!
For outstanding flavor, make sure your ground spices are fresh. If you cannot remember how long it's been since you bought a spice, chances are, it's time to buy a new jar.
ONE FINAL NOTE
This crisp is a wonderful treat with a good cup of coffee, in the afternoon while the kids are napping.
NEXT TIME I BAKE THIS
This apple crisp is already awesome. However, next time I'll try toasting the oats, along with chopped pecans, in the oven and mix them into the topping.
