Whenever I want to make apple crisp, I end up searching my email for hours (it seems) to find this recipe. This is my mom's fantastic recipe and her exact email to me after She told me over and over...but I could never remember! So instead of searching for the email again, I'm saving it on here & sharing it with you all. Make it. And it never hurts to add more crisp to the apples!
The Main Thing is the Main Thing ! So...with a crisp the Main Thing is the crisp part.
Yes, you need the fruit. so let’s just say 4 cups of tart, peeled and sliced apples (for a small recipe)
Now... the Main Thing:
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2/3 cup ﬂour
2/3 cup oats
dash of salt
3/4 teaspoon cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice
mix all these dry ingredients, then add 1/2 cup cold butter cut in tiny pieces
use a hand held pastry blender to begin the combining process and eventually get your hands into it
When it is all crumbly and well blended put the Main Thing on top of the apples which can be piled in a pie plate
or a larger baking dish if you are wise and double the recipe. Larger amounts of the Main Thing never hurt either.
Bake about 45 minutes at 375 degrees or till apples look tender and the Main Thing is crisp
Serve warm with ice cream to your impressed and salivating guests.
