My husband's been making versions of this crisp for years and with different fruit, but it was sealed in fame as our wedding day dessert! It's a classic recipe that will make you feel at home right away.
3 poundsapples, ideally Gravenstein9-10 apples; peel and chop in 1.5-2 inch cubes
1 1/2cupoatsWe used quick cooking oats
1 cupbrown sugar
2sticksbutterchilled; diced into 1-cm cubes
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Peel and dice apples in 1-inch chunks. Place into 9 x 13 baking dish.
Sprinkle the apples with remaining apple base ingredients (flour, sugar, cinnamon, and salt). Mix toppings into the apple mix with hands. Let the mixture set while you prepare the crisp topping.
In a separate bowl, prepare the crisp topping by mixing in all of the dry ingredients.
Add the diced butter cubes into the dry crisp mixture. Using your fingertips or a pastry cutter, press the butter into the dry mixture until it starts to seem sandy. My husband recommends keeping the chunks pretty large in general for a really chunky crisp topping.
Place the crisp into a preheated oven and bake for 45 minutes. Your crisp should look golden and you should be able to see that the apples cooked down and created their own sauce.
Serve warm with ice cream or whipped cream.
Feel free to exclude the ginger or increase it to 1/2 or 1 tsp. This would be great with roughly chopped pecans, too!Apple crisp tastes best the next day after all the flavors mesh together! Definitely serve reheated with ice cream or homemade whipped cream!
