The season is here to celebrate friends and family, and to welcome guests with something a little special and warm from the oven. The holidays find many people short on time, ruling out the “from scratch” crust that makes a pie a stand out. The Company C work-around? Try this simple Apple Crisp, a seasonally perfect dessert that is sure to be a crowd pleaser.
Here’s what you will need to assemble:
1 cup granulated sugar, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour, 10 cups Cortland apples (Macintosh are worthy here, too), 1 cup quick cooking oats, ½ cup water, ¼ teaspoon baking soda, ¼ teaspoon baking powder, 1 cup all-purpose flour, 1 cup brown sugar packed tightly, ½ cup melted butter.
Combine the granulated sugar, tablespoon of flour and ground cinnamon. Arrange cored, peeled, and sliced apples in a 9” x 13” baking dish. Sprinkle the sugar/cinnamon/flour mixture over the apples and pour the ½ cup of water over all. Mix oats, 1 cup brown sugar, 1 cup flour, baking soda, baking powder, and melted butter together. Layer the crumble evenly over the apples.
Place pan into an oven preheated to 350 degrees, and cook for 45 minutes.
Serve the apple crisp warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. You can’t beat this easy treat during the holidays. Enjoy!
