Don’ sit under the apple tree, with anyone else but me

I found this lovely recipe for Apple Crisp, one of the easiest “appley” desserts there is to make. In fact its such a sunny ,crisp fall day today I’m gonna make some crisp to eat! I suggest to receive the full effect of this recipe you find a farmer’s market that sells home-grown apples  or better yet pick your own apples from a pay and pick orchard. It adds to the whole flavor of the recipe. But in a pinch store-bought will do just as well.


5 medium Golden Delicious apples (about 2 pounds) peeled, cored, and thinly sliced
2 to 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup uncooked rolled oats
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
4 tablespoons cold unsalted butter (1/2 stick), cut into small pieces


Heat oven to 350°F and arrange rack in middle. Lightly butter an 8-by-8-inch baking dish.Combine apples, granulated sugar, cinnamon, and 1/4 teaspoon of the salt in a medium bowl and toss to coat. Place apple mixture in the prepared baking dish and set aside.
Mix together brown sugar, oats, flour, and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt in a medium bowl until evenly combined. With your fingertips, blend in butter pieces until small clumps form and butter is well incorporated, about 2 minutes. Sprinkle topping evenly over apples and bake until streusel is crispy and apples are tender, about 50 to 60 minutes. Let cool on a rack at least 30 minutes before serving.

I played around with this recipe, I added honey to the apple mixture and doubled the streusel recipe cuz everyone knows the crust is the best.
