Recipe for Old Fashioned Apple Crisp

by Astrid Apple

A few of my greatest memories are when my mom would make her old fashioned apple crisp recipe, filling the house with the aroma of cinnamon. Since I had watched my grandmother make this homemade wonder as well, I assumed it was exactly the same recipe passed down over years. As it turns out, my mom had her own version that was slightly various than grandmothers. Even though apple crisp has been located in cookbooks since 1924, I've never known two people to produce it exactly the same way. The principal may be the same, though baked apples smothered in a crispy cinnamon crust.

No matter whose recipe you use, this preferred treat is simple to create a lot simpler than making an apple pie or cobbler. There is certainly no crust to struggle over and right after the apples are peeled and sliced, it takes approximately ten minutes to create.


6 tart green apples like Granny Smith, 6 sweet, crisp apples like Braeburn, 1 teaspoon vanilla, 1 cup of flour, 2 cups rolled oats, 1-1/2 teaspoons cinnamon, 3/4 teaspoon nutmeg, 1-1/2 cups packed dark brown sugar, 1-1/2 cups butter, softened


1. Peel, core, and slice the apples. 2. Combine apples in a big bowl together with the teaspoon of vanilla. 3. Mix together the flour, oatmeal, cinnamon, nutmeg, and brown sugar. 4. Add the softened butter to the dry mixture and cut it in employing two knives until it's crumbly. 5. Pour the apples into a 9 x 13-inch baking dish that has been coated with cooking spray. 6. Spread the topping evenly above the top, ensuring it covers the apples well. 7. Bade at 350 degrees for 45 to 50 minutes and the apples are tender. 8. Serve warm with ice cream or whip cream.


The terrific thing about an old-fashioned apple crisp recipe is the fact that there are a lot of small changes you could make to produce it stand out from the common apple crisp. For this recipe, replace about 1/3 of the apples with an equal quantity of cranberries for an apple cranberry crisp. There is other fresh fruit you may substitute for the apples. You could use half apple and half peach or half blackberry. As soon as you are an apple crisp expert, experiment with the form of apple you use - all tart green apples or all sweet. Just be certain they're crispy. A soft apple tends to make an apple crisp a little bit mushy.
