Grandma’s Apple Crisp

Grandma’s Apple Crisp

A simple dessert that’s great served with ice cream.

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 Jonathan apples, peeled and thinly sliced

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions:

1. Preheat the oven to 375°F 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 the 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.
