Easy Apple Crisp Recipe

by LiveLoveGive

This apple crisp recipe is the perfect comfort food for the holiday season!

If you're looking for an easy-to-make comforting dessert to keep you warm on cold winter nights, then this apple crisp recipe is for you!

The crunchy, buttery topping topping doesn't require and kneading and rolling, and (I believe) it tastes much better than a traditional pie crust recipe. Plus, since the crust only covers the top of the apples, you'll cut back on all those extra carbs found in a traditional pie made with a top and bottom pastry crust.

Crisp, tart and oh-so yummy!

Here's what you need to make the filling for your apple crisp.

Prep time 15 min  -  Total time 15 min
Ingredients for 8 servings
6 - 7 Granny Smith Apples, Peeled and chopped into medium chunks  • 1 tsp Cinnamon  • 1 packet Vanilla Sugar  • Pinch Nutmeg  • 5 tbsp Melted Butter, Salted  • 1 tsp Lemon Juice, Fresh or Bottled  • 1 cup Sultana Raisins  • 1 tbsp Cornstarch

1. In a large mixing bowl, toss the chopped apples and raisins together.

2. Slowly blend the cornstarch and lemon juice. If needed, add a few drops of warm water to the cornstarch and lemon juice to keep the cornstarch from clumping up.

3. Add the cornstarch and lemon juice mixture to the apples and raisins. Then add the brown sugar, vanilla sugar, nutmeg and cinnamon. Toss the ingredients together with a wooden spoon until all the apple chunks are coated in liquid.

4. Set the mixture aside while you start making the Apple Crisp pie crust.

And now for the topping!

In less than an hour, your dessert will be ready!

Prep time 10 min  -  Total time 50 min
Ingredients for 8 servings
2/3 Cup of Honey Almond Granola (without dried fruit)  • 2/3 Cup All-Purpose Flour  • 3 Tbsp Sugar  • 6 Tbsp Butter, Softened (not melted)

1. In a large mixing bowl. cream the softened butter and sugar together. If your butter is at room temperature, you should be able to blend the ingredients together by hand with a wooden spoon. Otherwise, use a low-speed hand blender.

2. Add the flour and granola to the creamed sugar and butter and mix by hand. The mixture should look like chunky, crumbly dough.

3. Pour the apple, raisin, and cinnamon mixture into an ungreased, medium-sized rectangular glass baking dish. Shake the bowl gently to distribute the apple chunks and raisins evenly in the dish.

4. Cover the apples with the topping mixture. Distribute the mixture evenly so that the chunks of dough are spread out, edge to edge, across the apples. Do not press the dough mixture into the apples.

5. Bake uncovered at 350 C for 35 - 40 minutes.

6. Let the apple crisp cool for 5 - 7 few minutes before serving it with vanilla ice cream or homemade whipped cream. (See the video tutorial below for instructions on how to make homemade whipped cream.)

Cover and refrigerate any leftovers.

This does sound delicious! I often make apple crisp (in the cooler months) but I haven't actually tried it with Granny Smith apples - next time I will.
