Old Fashioned Apple Crisp

This apple crisp has the most crunchy, delectable topping. My husband has declared that he "can't imagine a better tasting apple crisp."

I've prepared this recipe with Gala, Fuji and Honey Crisp apples. I use really large apples - about 4 pounds in all. (Oct-2016: Jona Gold & Mutsu are really good, too!)

This recipe was adapted from the one in a Betty Crocker cookbook (the big one with the ring binding that is usually a gift to aspiring cooks... You know the one.)

Bake

Ingredients

4-5 large
apples, peeled, cored, sliced thin-ish
1 c
almond meal (ground almonds)
1/2 c
all purpose flour
2 c
dark brown sugar
1 c
butter, salted, melted
2 c
oats, old fashioned style
2 tsp
ground cinnamon
1 tsp
ground ginger *optional

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Peel, core and chop apples. Place them in a 13X9X2 inch baking pan.

Note: If you like the finished product to be less "juicy" - toss the apples in a little flour (and I will add a little cinnamon, too) to keep the liquids thick and not soupy.
2
In a large mixing bowl, place all dry ingredients (brown sugar, oats, flour, cinnamon and almond meal) and mix thoroughly.

Note: If using unsalted butter, I like to add a little sea salt to the crumble topping.
3
Add the melted butter to the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly with your hands. (Really smoosh it all together.)
4
Sprinkle the topping all over the top of the apples and coat evenly.
5
Bake crisp on center oven rack at 350F for 40-45 minutes. Apples should be bubbling and topping should be a deep golden color.
