Recipe of the Week: Apple Crisp

This week’s recipe is from Taste of Home. It is a recipe for Apple Crisp. I don’t get a chance to eat this stuff as much as other cakes/pies/etc, but when I do eat it, it is absolutely delicious.

This is a really great recipe to eat on a cool fall or winter day. It’s perfect for harvest time and family get togethers, and it’ll warm your heart and soul. Enjoy!

5 medium tart apples, peeled and sliced
1-1/4 cups sugar, divided
1-3/4 teaspoons ground cinnamon, divided
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup cold butter, cubed
1 cup water

Directions: In a large bowl, combine the apples, 1/4 cup sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Transfer to a greased 8-in. square baking dish. In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt and remaining sugar; cut in butter until crumbly. Sprinkle over apples, pressing down to smooth top. Slowly pour water over the top; sprinkle with remaining cinnamon. Bake, uncovered, at 400° for 40-45 minutes or until apples are tender. Serve warm. Yield: 8 servings.

  2. That looks sooo yummy! I love anything with apples in it. I’m going to have to make that this weekend. It looks like it would be so good on ice cream!

    Sounds very similar to apple crumble. Or is that just an English thing?
