4 to 7 apples (combine different apples, such as macintosh, granny smith, cortlandt, etc.)
1 cup flour
1 bar margarine, melted
1 / 2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1. Oven to 375 to 400 degrees.
2. Peel and slice apples. In a large pie oven dish, cover the bottom with a single layer of apple slices. Sprinkle cinnamon over slices. Repeat with another layer of apples higher than the pie dish and sprinkle cinnamon.
3. In a medium sauce pan, melt margarine. Add flour, sugar, vanilla, and egg. Mix well. Pour over the apples.
4. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes. Serves 6 to 8. A scoop of vanilla ice cream on top of warm apple crisp is a great addition to an already delicious dessert!
5. ENJOY! – Apples served everyday will keep the doctor away!
Fall in New York is all about the apples! It’s apple season in our great state, and how wonderful it is to have access to so many varieties. Everyone seems to have a favorite, whether it is tart, sweet, crisp, or sour, there’s something for everyone. Are you aware that New York is one of the top 5 apple-producing states in the US and that it’s our official state fruit?
So, I want to offer you an easy recipe that will appeal to everyone….it’s Apple Crisp. The secret to remembering this recipe is to think of the number 1, as in 1 bar of margarine, 1 cup of flour and so on … except, of course, for the sugar. My friend, Laurie, gave the recipe to me. The sugar was originally 1 cup and I reduced it to ½ cup. No one even noticed. They thought it was perfect. Feel free to use any kind of apple for this recipe.
My kitchen is filled with an abundance of apples during this time of year. I find apple crisp to be a very quick and simple recipe to whip up after working all day or to serve guests at the last minute. All the ingredients are handy and ready.
So take yourself to the supermarket, farmer’s market, or the nearest farm and think about how great your kitchen’s going to smell when you make your own Apple Crisp!
