A couple weeks ago, I signed up for a produce delivery service with Winder Farms. We had a positive experience with New Roots Organics in Seattle and so I thought I’d give this one a try. In our introductory box, we received several Granny Smith apples. They’re a bit tart for me to eat as a snack but I heard they were delicious in baking. Off I went in search for a crumble recipe using apples and oatmeal (sounded like a good idea). There’s something about crumbles that I find so warm and comforting. You can hardly mess with it and it’s the perfect way to begin the fall season. Here was one from my favorite recipe site, Allrecipes, that turned out so well. It was simple to make and great as a dessert with a dab of vanilla ice cream, or even as an indulgent breakfast.
I love fall!
Apple Crisp with Oat Topping
Prep Time: 20 Minutes
Cook Time: 40 Minutes
Ready In: 1 Hour
6 apples – peeled, cored, and sliced
2 tablespoons white sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup old-fashioned oats
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup cold butter
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
2. Toss apples with white sugar and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon in a medium bowl to coat; pour into a 9-inch square baking dish.
3. Mix brown sugar, oats, flour, and 1 teaspoon cinnamon in a separate bowl. Use a pastry cutter or 2 forks to mash cold butter into the oats mixture until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs; spread over the apples to the edges of the baking dish. Pat the topping gently until even.
4. Bake in preheated oven until golden brown and sides are bubbling, about 40 minutes.
