Backyard Apple Tree Crisp

Serves: 4
Total Calories: 621


4 to 6 medium baking apples of different varieties, peeled, cored, and thinly sliced
Juice of 1/2 medium lemon
1/3 cup granulated sugar
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
3/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup unsalted butter, cut into small pieces


1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Generously butter an 8-by-8-inch baking dish or another 2-quart baking dish and set aside.
2. To make the filling: In a medium bowl, toss together the apples, lemon juice, and sugar. Transfer the apples to the baking dish and set aside.
3. To make the topping: In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, oats, brown sugar, granulated sugar, and cinnamon. Using your fingers or a pastry blender, work the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.
4. Sprinkle the topping over the apples. Bake in the center of the oven until the crisp is golden brown and the apples are bubbling around the edges, 35 to 45 minutes. Remove and cool in the pan for 15 minutes. Serve with vanilla ice cream, warm Cardamom Custard Sauce, or Rosemary White Chocolate Ganache.
