Simple Apple Crisp Recipe

This week is my first week back to college! I’m a second semester Β senior with one class left!

To be completely honest senioritis is setting in big time especially since I’m currently taking my math requirement.

When I first saw my finite math textbook I was pretty happy. I knew everything in Chapters 1-6 because I’d been learning it since high school. It wouldn’t be easy, but it would be do-able.

Except we started on Chapter 8. (Now hiring math tutor, will pay with cookies,JK

So naturally instead of working on math homework, I decided to bake something. Apples are coming into season so it’s the perfect time to try my Simple Apple Crisp Recipe.

If you aren’t a fan of oats you’ll be pleased that they’re not included in my simple apple crisp recipe. However, the topping is still super crunchy. nomnomnom

Ingredients
Apples:
  • 5-6 apples peeled, cored, and sliced thin (I used Granny Smith)
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ cup apple cider or apple juice
  • 1 tea spoon vanilla extract
Topping:
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 stick cold butter
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. In a small mixing bowl, combine cinnamon and sugar.In a 9x9 inch pan dust a light layer of the cinnamon sugar mixture on the bottom.
  3. Alternate single layers of apple slices and cinnamon sugar. Cover the final apple layer with the remaining cinnamon sugar.
  4. Mix vanilla and apple juice. Pour over apple mixture.
  5. Mix flour and sugar in a small bowl. Grate butter using a flat grater over this bowl. Mix together with a pastry cutter or 2 forks until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  6. Sprinkle the topping evenly over the apples.
  7. Bake for 25-30 minutes until golden brown. Serve with whipped cream or ice cream if desired.

Simple Apple Crisp Recipe Variations:
Add oats or walnuts to the topping for an even crunchier texture.
Use whatever fruit is in season. Pears or peaches would also be great here.
