Classic Apple Crisp

Classic Apple Crisp

Classic Apple Crisp

I've made versions of Fruit Crisp many times over the years, with Apple Crisp being one of my favorites. This is by far the best one I've made to date. I give most of the credit to the apples. Not sure what I've used in the past, but from now on I'm using Honey Crisp. I think they gave the right amount of tart and sweet to the dish. It was seriously amazing!

Of course you can adapt this recipe to other fruits as well. I've also used fresh peaches and blueberry and it was amazing!

3 pounds Honey Crisp Apples
2 tablespoons orange juice
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg

For the topping
3/4 cup flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 cup old fashioned oatmeal
1 stick cold unsalted butter, diced

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Butter or spray a 9 by 14 by 2-inch baking dish.

Peel, core, and cut the apples into medium thick slices. In a large bowl, combine the apples with the juice, granulated sugar, and spices. Pour into the dish.

To make the topping, combine the flour, sugars, salt, oatmeal, and cold butter in the bowl of an electric mixer with the paddle attachment. Mix on low speed until the mixture is crumbly. Place mixture evenly over apples.

Bake for 1 hour or until the top is brown and the apples are bubbly. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream of course. 
**If the fruit isn't giving enough juice or the topping looks too dry, I'll add 1/2 cup of water to the top and bake an additional 30 minutes.
