As someone with a website that’s largely devoted to baking, I’m constantly trying to think of ways that I can “mix up” traditional recipes to give them a new spin. While this is fun, it’s really important to remember that nothing beats the classics. Recipes that we make year after year deserve a special place in our recipe boxes, and for me, one of those recipes would have to be apple crisp.
After our weekend trip to an apple orchard, we were left with a lot of apples. I was thinking about what I wanted to do with all of them, then I decided that instead of driving myself crazy coming up with a new recipe, I’d just stick with an old classic. This is the recipe my mom has made for my whole life. It’s quick and easy, and it requires ingredients that you most likely already have in your kitchen.
- 10-12 medium apples, peeled, cored, and chopped
- 2 2/3 cups sugar, divided
- 3 T cornstarch
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 2 sticks butter, softened
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- In a large bowl, mix together apples, 2/3 cup sugar, and cornstarch. Place in a greased 9x13" baking pan.
- In another bowl, add flour, 2 cups sugar, butter, and cinnamon.
- Using a pastry cutter or two forks, mix the ingredients together until softened.
- Spread evenly over the top of the apples in the baking dish.
- Bake at 375 for 45 minutes. Allow to cool and enjoy!
