Lisa’s Apple Crisp
What you need is
3/4 cup all-purpose flour,
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
1 stick butter, cold, cut into small cubes
1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats or you can use steel cut too
3 pounds apples, cored, and cut into 1/2-inch chunks (see my note)
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a 13 x 9 pan with cooking spray and set aside. In a large bowl, mix together flour, brown sugar, salt, and 2 tablespoons granulated sugar. Cut butter into flour, using a pastry blender or two knives, until it looks crumbled. Add oats, and use your hands to toss and squeeze mixture until large clumps form.
In another large bowl, toss apples with lemon juice, cinnamon, and remaining 1/2 cup granulated sugar. Transfer to a 13 x 9 sprayed baking dish, and sprinkle with topping mixture. Place baking dish on a rimmed baking sheet, and bake until golden and bubbling, 55 to 65 minutes. Let cool 10 minutes before serving.
NOTE: I don’t peel my apple as all the nutrients is in the peeling, you can peel them if you want but I don’t like to waste anything and its really good that way too
