Apple Crisp

Posted in Recipes by Andrea on August 26, 2009

apple crispDudes – this is the best apple crisp I’ve ever had.  I searched high and low for the right set of ingredients and then added my own twist.  It came out awesome.  You can feel free to make half of the recipe in a smaller pan.




 The good stuff

10 granny smith apples

1 cup white sugar

1 tbsp all-purpose flour

1 tsp ground cinnamon

1 cup water

A few small squirts of lemon juice

A few light shakes of any or all:





Mix together the white sugar, flour, cinnamon, water, lemon juice, and other spices in a large mixing bowl.

Peel and cut up apples, add to the mixing bowl.

Let the apples soak (and stir occasionally) while making the topping.


The topping

1 cup all-purpose flour

1 cup packed brown sugar

¼ tsp baking powder

¼ tsp baking soda

½ cup butter, melted

A dash of salt


In a separate bowl, using a fork, combine the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, butter, and salt.


Pour “the good stuff” into a 9×13 pan.  Crumble “the topping” evenly over the mixture.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes.

Serve warm with vanilla ice-cream.

    FYI to you other readers out there… I was chatting with Andrea & Kenny on skype when they broke this out. I watched them inhale it, this taking place after the two of them had returned from a full dinner downtown. Andrea was so excited about how good it was and Kenny could not stop shouting “Mmm!”. He actually said “Best apple crisp ever!” Needless to say, I’ve been drooling a little over it ever since. Thanks for posting, Andrea! I’m excited to try the recipe and may even do it this weekend! I am going to the farmer’s market early Saturday morning and will pick some fresh granny smith’s for the baking!
