I’ve made versions of Fruit Crisp many times over the years, with Apple Crisp being one of my favorites. This is by far the best one I’ve made to date. I give most of the credit to the apples. Not sure what I’ve used in the past, but from now on I’m using Honey Crisp. I think they gave the right amount of tart and sweet to the dish. It was seriously amazing!
Of course you can adapt this recipe to other fruits as well. I’ve also used fresh peaches and blueberry and it was amazing!
3 pounds Honey
tablespoons orange juice
teaspoons ground cinnamon
teaspoon ground nutmeg
For the topping
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
teaspoon kosher salt
1 cup old
cold unsalted butter, diced
the oven to 350 degrees F. Butter or spray a 9 by 14 by 2-inch baking
core, and cut the apples into medium thick slices. In a large bowl, combine the apples with the juice, granulated sugar,
and spices. Pour into the dish.
the topping, combine the flour, sugars, salt, oatmeal, and cold butter in the
bowl of an electric mixer with the paddle attachment. Mix on low speed until
the mixture is crumbly. Place mixture evenly
1 hour or until the top is brown and the apples are bubbly. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream of course.
**If the fruit isn’t giving enough juice or the topping looks too dry, I’ll add 1/2 cup of water to the top and bake an additional 30 minutes.
