    Apple Crisp

    Apple Crisp



    Apple Crisp-apple-crisp-jpg


    This is a recipe I found online which is actually a lower fat, lower calorie version of your traditional apple crisp. I made it yesterday for a get together and it turned out very, very well! I had some for breakfast this morning too and it seemed to taste even better! I didn't have all the individual spices like nutmeg, cloves, or ground ginger so I used pumpkin pie spice in its place. The most time consuming part was peeling and slicing the apples. I only had Fuji apples so that's what I used. To make the topping, I just used my fingers to blend everything together...no need for the two knives or the pastry blender!

    (The picture isn't mine, it's taken from the website food.com, which is where the recipe also comes from)

    Ingredients



      • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour, plus 2 Tbsp
      • 1/2 cup old fashioned oats ( not instant)
      • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
      • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
      • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
      • 1 pinch salt
      • 3 tablespoons light stick butter, diced
      • 1 teaspoon water
      • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
      • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
      • 1 pinch ground cloves
      • 3 lbs golden delicious apples or 3 lbs jonathan apples, peeled and thinly sliced
      • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


    Directions


    1. Preheat the oven to 375F Spray a shallow 1-1/2 quart baking dish with nonstick spray.
    2. To make the topping, combine the 1/2 cup flour, the oats, brown sugar, ginger, cinnamon, and salt in a medium bowl. With a pastry blender or 2 knives used scissor-fashion, cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add the water and firmly press mixture to form clumps.
    3. To make the filling, mix the granulated sugar, the 2 tablespoons flour, the nutmeg, and cloves in a large bowl. Add the apples and vanilla; mix well. Transfer to the baking dish. Sprinkle the topping over the filling. Bake until the filling is bubbling and the topping is golden, 55 - 60 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.
