Apple Crisp

HerNameIsBuffy

865 views

I was planning on making an apple crisp today and thought it would be fun to blog it, in light of Jill's attempt which looked like potato wedges covered in gravy.

It turns out I won't be eating crisp, but rather humble pie.  For the first time I had to fuss over mine to get it to come out right and in the end it's tasty...but ugly.

I'm blaming a Duggarville curse.

Oh, another Duggar tie in is that with the exception of the cinnamon I got everything at Aldi.)

Ingredients:

(This makes enough to fill a 9x13 pan full - so for a normal size batch you can halve the amounts.)

  • 8 heaping cups of fresh apples
  • 1.5 cups packed light brown sugar
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup butter (room temp) (or 2/3 - see instructions below)
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1.5 tsp nutmeg

Preheat oven to 375 and  butter 9x13 pan.  I love spray butter so much.

Peel and core apples.  I use one of those apple corer/slicer things which cuts them into sections as you'd use for apple pie.  That thing is a time saver, worth every penny of the couple bucks I spent on it 10 years ago.  

Spread apples evenly in buttered pan.

In a large bowl cut the other ingredients together with a pastry cutter until combined.

Cover apples evenly with mixture and bake for about 45 minutes.  Ovens and apples vary so check after about 30.  When done the apples will be soft and sauce will be bubbly like pie and the top will be golden and crispy.

(originally I had used 2/3 cup of butter but after a half hour it was too dry so i sliced the remaining 1/3 into pats and added to the top and baked for another 15 minutes.  I've never had to do this before so either it was the Duggarville curse or these apples weren't as juicy as others I've used n the past.)

Let stand for a while.  Some serve crisp with ice cream, but we're not huge fans of a la mode in my family so we eat it straight.  As God intended.

You insult me. If we are going to sit and BS, of COURSE I'll bring wine. LOL. I might also bring a cider I think you would like.

This looks great! I might actually make this one.

Though I gotta say, the apple crip is one of the less snark-worthy recipes on Jill's blog. She's not good at photography but the recipe is basically just baked fruit with streusels. As a dessert, totally acceptable. Now if Jill had arranged it nicely on a cute plate and decorated with some ice cream, a bit of powdered sugar and a mint leaf...but hey, creativity is not on the SOTDRT curriculum and I prefer my desserts right out of the pan too. LOL

I made an apple dessert on Sunday. It was apple crumble, which is somewhat similar to this. The topping is butter/flour/sugar, mixed with the hands until it resembles breadcrumbs. Cover the apples with it. Looks a bit like this:

Some include oats in the topping too, but I don’t.

      My family tradition seems to be being pregnant at your wedding - at least, on my mom's side.

      It's interesting to see the family size get smaller! The Duggars are the opposite...

      @baldricks_turnipthought I was the only one up. "An anxious and closed off person," for describing Jana. I've been thinking the same thing for years! If she really sincerely wants to be married...I hope it happens before her youngest sisters become old enough for courtship. Those girls are like her children. We already have Justin, who in my opinion looks like he's in 8th grade. Watching siblings you've helped raise get married has got to be horribly tough. Jana can smile all she wants, I'm not buying it. I'm glad she has hobbies and other distractions to keep her busy.

      I also wonder if she's not really honest with herself about what she really wants, or self-aware enough. Like she starts 'getting to know' someone but doesn't find herself getting all gooey over him like she observed with her courting sisters, so she decides he just isn't the one/she's being picky/he's not the one God has planned for her, but maybe no one would make her feel that way?

      (Standard disclaimer that I'm just armchair analysing someone from TV)

      The reason liquor stores are considered essential businesses during emergencies is so that the healthcare system isn’t overwhelmed by active alcoholics forced into a sudden detox.

      (My guess is that everyone here knows this, but I have had to explain it to people who were better educated and more intellectually curious than that preacher, so just in case?)
