Does anyone have an apple crisp recipe that they just LOVE? This is one dish that I crave, but can't seem to make well.
This is from my 1972 Betty Crocker recipe book. It is simple and delicious.
Bake 30 minutes or until apples are tender and topping is golden brown. Serve warm. (With light cream or ice cream if desired.)
Variation: Cherry crisp: Substitute one can (1 lb. 5 oz.) cherry pie filling for the apples and use less sugar.
Ginger, you can try different types of fruit, like peaches or mixing rhubarb and cherries, (tart but good, just add a little more sugar if you need to). I like to start out with maybe 1/2 cup sugar and gradually add more according to taste. I've made these crisps using Splenda, also, because my mom is diabetic, so when we have family potluck style dinners, she can also enjoy some desert. Hope this helps!
I can't give you my family recipe, it's from a Betty Crocker book I think, an OLD one, if I did, there would be many people mad at me.
BUT, I can give you several tips.
I don't use sugar or cinnamon on the apples, I just peel, slice (maybe a little lemon) and throw the topping on top. That way you taste the apples AND the topping, not just a bunch of sweet, buttery, cinnamon topping (not that that is a problem).
**THE MOST IMPORTANT RULE**
Apple Crisp is a PERFECTLY ACCEPTABLE BREAKFAST THE NEXT DAY!
I made it a rule YEARS ago when I found the recipe and made it the first time (we had a small family apple orchard), my kids LOVE to eat it for breakfast, the only time I break my NO SUGAR before school!
Good luck! Happy experimenting! (04/02/2007)
Here is a recipe that I use all the time. I love it and so does my family. Enjoy!
Grease a 9-in. square baking dish. Pour in apple pie filling. Mix dry ingredients. Cut in butter until mixture is crumbly. Spread evenly over pie filling.
Bake at 400 degrees F for 18 to 20 minutes
The recipe on the bottom of the page is the most like mine. I love lots of brown sugar and oats!
My tip: use REAL apples (not canned) and use butter (not margerine), don't cut corners! I think home-made desserts should be made with the best ingredients! Or you might as well get a mix!
Thanks, Ladies! I have some more ideas to go on.... It will be fun to experiment. Ginger (04/03/2007)
Mix together flour, 1 C sugar, baking powder, and egg. The mixture will look like cornmeal.
Peel, core, and slice the apples. Mix together with 1/2 TB cinnamon. Place apples in a greased 8-inch square pan. Spread flour mixture over the apples. Mix together 1 TB cinnamon adn 1/4 C sugar, sprinkle over the top of the crisp. Drizzle with butter.
Bake at 300 degress F for one hour. Serve warm.
* One time I made it with 1/2 cup sugar + 1/2 cup Splenda and it tasted great. (04/03/2007)
Slice peeled and cored apples into an 8" casserole. Add a couple Tbsps. of water(helps prevent sticking)
Make crumbs of:
To this mixture add nutmeg or cinnamon to your taste. Make the crumbs with your hands. Pat crumb mixture on top of apples. Bake 35-40 minutes till bubbly and golden.
This recipe does not use oatmeal,grapenuts or any other cereals. It is plain and delicious. Of course vanilla ice cream served with it is a bonus. Enjoy! (04/04/2007)
This tastes good and is the easiest EVER (I used to make it as a kid).
Spoon apple filling in 8x10 cake pan. Sprinkle dry cake mix over top. Cover completely.
Melt butter in saucepan or microwave. Spoon over entire top of cake mix. Spread gently with butter knife.
Bake in a 350 degree F oven untill browned, about 20 to 25 minutes.
Here's an apple crisp that we really like.
Set oven to 350 degrees.
Mix topping ingredients. Set aside.
Spray with Pam a glass baking dish. Peel apples, slice and mix with sugar and cinnamon.
Place in prepared dish. (I used an 11 inch, deep dish, Pampered Chef stoneware)
Cover apples with topping pressing topping down on the apples.
Bake till lightly browned and apples are tender, about 50 minutes to 1 hour.
Being Diabetic I use the Apple Pie Filling recipe on the back of the Splenda bag (on their website as well). For a topping: A couple of handfuls each of brown sugar, old fashioned oats & flax seed mixed together with just enough canola oil to make a crumbly mixture. This a slightly healthier recipe that still meets the approval of my family. (04/07/2007)
