Weelicious' Easy Apple Crisp Recipe Is Perfect for Fall
Apple season is here again! We couldn’t be more excited about finding this delicious, cinnamon-laced apple crisp recipe from Catherine McCord of Weelicious. We can always trust Weelicious for weeknight recipes that our family members, especially the little ones, are guaranteed to gobble up.
We also love that this dessert still leaves time to make the rest of dinner. “I have a habit of spending so much time making the dinner portion of our family meals, that I often completely forget about dessert,” says Catherine. “While I doubt I’ll ever break my habit of focusing on the dinner portion so much, at least this easy-to-make crisp will always ensure I still have enough time to whip up something delicious for my dessert-mad family--even when I forget!”
Cinnamon Apple Crisp
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
5 granny smith apples, peeled and cored
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3/4 cup old fashioned oats
3/4 cup flour
8 tablespoons cold unsalted butter
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1. Preheat oven to 400 F.
2. Cut apples into quarters then slice each quarter lengthwise into 4 slices. Your apple slices should be about ¼ inch thick.
3. Melt the butter and sugar in a large sauté pan and cook for 30 seconds over medium heat.
4. Add the sliced apples to the pan, sprinkle in the cinnamon, combine and cook for 10-12 minutes until the apples are soft.
5. Place the remaining crisp ingredients in a bowl and gently crumble together with your fingers until the mixture forms pea-sized lumps.
6. Pour the apples into a 9-inch deep-dish pie plate and cover with the crumble topping.
7. Bake for 25 minutes.
8. Cool and serve.
Accompaniments: Vanilla ice cream or whipped cream, of course!
