Last fall my friend hosted a comfort food dinner party and I decided to “bring” my favorite fall dessert – apple crisp!
When making this, you’ll probably want to double it. I almost doubled the recipe for you and made that the recipe, but I worried you wouldn’t give it a chance if you saw two sticks of butter in the ingredients. Butter is healthy, right? ;)
– 4-6 medium apples, sliced and chopped
– 3 T butter
– a few dashes of cinnamon
– 1 stick butter, softened
– 1/2 cup brown sugar
– 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
– 1/2 cup flour
1.) Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2.) Add your 3 tablespoons of butter to a cast iron pan, melt until slightly brown and bubbly. Add chopped apples, sprinkle with cinnamon, and cook until slightly soft.
3.) In a large bowl, make your topping. Mix softened butter, brown sugar, oats, and flour with your hands until the topping starts to form small clumps.
4.) When your apples are soft-ish and look yummy, sprinkle the topping on top of the apples until covered.
5.) Stop a few times and eat the butter/oat/brown sugar clumps (very important).
6 .) Bake at 350 degrees for an hour.
Your crisp is done with the topping looks golden brown and slightly crunchy. Cinnamon and brown sugar and oatmeal and mmmmmm. Every time we have it, it takes me back to fall. Apple picking, hay rides, cozy sweaters, cute boots… I love fall!
