I’m pretty sure the squirrels have been stealing my apples, because the biggest branch of my tree is mysteriously bare. Regardless, I managed to wrangle up enough apples today to make one of my all time favorite desserts: apple crisp. I use my grandma’s recipe because it is extra buttery and crumbly and yummy.
o start, peel and slice all of your apples. Try to make your slices evenly sized so that they will all cook at the same speed (using an apple slicer like this one makes this super easy). Place the apple slices in a baking dish that is no bigger than 10″ (round or square, doesn’t matter).
Mix together the granulated sugar, cinnamon, and flour. Sprinkle this mixture over the top of your cut apples and toss to combine.
Side note: If you are using very tart apples (like Granny Smith), I recommend sprinkling your apples with a teaspoon of baking soda before coating them with the cinnamon mixture. Baking soda will help to minimize the tart flavor of the apples, thereby making them sweeter without adding more sugar.
Let’s get to the recipe.
