Over the weekend, I watched a combination of the Olympics and The Great British Baking Show (or is it Bake Off? I’ve seen it both ways.) I made a mistake of watching the episode where they made bread the other night and all I wanted to do was bake a loaf of bread at midnight!
Since we had some left over apples in our pantry and it’s been a bit cooler the past few days, I thought I would make some apple crisp! I really love this recipe because it actually makes a “crisp” on top. So many recipes only use butter, flour, and sugar for a topping but this one incorporates rolled oats. Pin this one for the fall!
6 cups sliced and peeled apples
3-4 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup chopped nuts or flaked coconut
1) Preheat oven to 350*F.
2) In a large bowl, combine apples and granulated sugar (and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon-optional)
3) Transfer apples to a 2 quart baking dish and set aside.
4) Combine oats, brown sugar, flour, and cinnamon in a medium bowl. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in nuts or coconut.
5) Sprinkle brown sugar mixture over the apples.
6) Bake for 35-40 minutes until apples are tender and topping is golden.
7) Serve warm with ice cream.
