It’s autumn so apple crisp is a mandatory dish for me, at least once a week. This is a quick and easy one to prepare and after an hour in the oven, you have not only made a tasty dessert but filled your home with a great aroma.
Feel free to use your favorite apple – I really like tart apples and almost always use Granny Smiths. I also like to mix in the cranberries but you could substitute in raisins, pears or other fall fruits.
- 6 Apples, Peeled and Chopped
- 1 Cup Dried Cranberries
- 1/4 Cup Packed Brown Sugar
- 3/4 Cup Flour
- 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
- 1/2 Cup, plus 2 Tablespoons of Sugar
- 1/2 Cup Cold Margarine, Cubed
- 1 Cup Rolled Oats (not quick-cooking)
- 2 Tablespoons Fresh Lemon Juice
- 1/2 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
Preheat the oven to 375
In a large bowl, use a pastry cutter or knives to cut the flour, brown sugar, salt and 2 tablespoons of sugar into the margarine, until it becomes coarse. Add the oats and mix together by hand into pebble sized pieces. Put the bowl in the freezer.
Mix the lemon juice, cinnamon and remaining sugar in a bowl with the chopped apples.
Pour the apple mixture into the a baking dish and sprinkle the topping thoroughly across the top. Place in the oven and bake for 55-65 minutes.
