Best Apple Crisp

Ingredients

  • 4 medium tart cooking apples, sliced (4 cups)
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup quick-cooking or old-fashioned oats
  • 1/3 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • Cream or Ice cream, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. Grease bottom and sides of 8-inch square pan with shortening.
  • 2
    Spread apples in pan. In medium bowl, stir remaining ingredients except cream until well mixed; sprinkle over apples.
  • 3
    Bake about 30 minutes or until topping is golden brown and apples are tender when pierced with a fork. Serve warm with cream.

  • No matter the name—crisp, crumble, or cobbler—any baked dessert filled with fresh fruit is defined by the topping. A crisp and crumble are close cousins, with their toppings of buttered flour or oats and sugar. A crisp is all about the oats that become browned and a little crunchy when baked.
  • Many sweet crumbly or streusel toppings include chopped nuts; walnut, pecans, or macadamia nuts are good choices and will toast during baking.
  • Dark brown sugar can be used if you want to bump up the caramel-like taste surrounding the fruit.
  • Choose crisp and tartly-sweet apples—Empire, Granny Smith, Honey Crisp, Braeburn, Cortland—they hold their shape and aren’t too juicy.
  • Get creative by adding your favorite dried spice, 1 tablespoon candied ginger, or 1/2 cup chewy dried fruits to add more layers of flavor and texture.
