"I adapted this from a 50-year-old peach crisp recipe. Although it works well with peaches, it works even better with fresh, crisp cooking apples."

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • Do not overmix the topping, and NEVER cream it. The topping should be gently cut into the butter so that the butter remains in small lumps. This will result in a light, crunchy topping for the apples. Also, in a pinch, you don't need to sift the dry ingredients. Just carefully stir them together until mixed (prior to adding the butter).

This is a remarkably quick, easy and satisfying dessert to make. If you have a couple of apples on hand you could have dessert on a whim! I loved that it didn't contain oatmeal or water and the topping was excellent - buttery with a nice crispy crunch as it should. But... there was too much of it for the amount of apples, which made it seem much too sweet. Unfortunately there was no way I could use it all and I discarded the excess. I think adding half again as many apples would be an improvement that would elevate this to 5-star status.

Finally, apple crisp like MY grandma made! No oatmeal, nuts, or fancy things...just simple pantry staples and fresh, homemade taste. :) This is wonderful, easy, and quickly made. You can pop this in the oven while you eat dinner, and by the time you finish dinner and clear the dishes, it's ready.
