Apple Crisp

Apple Crisp

Apple crisp is a popular dessert dish made with baked apples and a crispy, crumbly topping. It is a classic American dessert that is often served during the fall and winter months when apples are in season.

To make apple crisp, apples are first peeled, cored, and sliced into thin pieces. These apple slices are then layered in a baking dish and sprinkled with a mixture of sugar and cinnamon. In a separate bowl, a mixture of flour, oats, brown sugar, butter, and additional cinnamon is combined to form the crisp topping. This mixture is then sprinkled over the apples, and the entire dish is baked in the oven until the topping is golden brown and the apples are tender.

Apple crisp is typically served warm, and it can be topped with whipped cream, vanilla ice cream, or caramel sauce. Some variations of apple crisp include adding nuts, raisins, or other fruits like cranberries or pears to the recipe.

SERVING SUGGESTIONS OR ADDITIONAL TIPS:

  • Serve the apple crisp warm, topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream.
  • For a crunchier topping, add 1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans to the oat mixture.
  • For a gluten-free option, use gluten-free oats and flour.
  • If you prefer, you can make the apple crisp ahead of time and store in the refrigerator until ready to bake.
