What You Need
For the Apple Filling:
6 medium-sized apples (preferably a mix of sweet and tart varieties)
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon lemon juice
For the Crisp Topping:
3/4 cup old-fashioned oats
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup cold unsalted butter, diced
What To Do
Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and grease a 9-inch baking dish.
Peel, core, and slice the apples into thin wedges. In a large bowl, combine the sliced apples, granulated sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, and lemon juice. Toss until the apples are well coated in the mixture.
Transfer the apple mixture to the greased baking dish, spreading it out evenly.
In a separate bowl, combine the oats, flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt for the crisp topping. Mix well. Add the cold diced butter and use your fingers or a pastry cutter to cut it into the dry ingredients until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
Sprinkle the crisp topping evenly over the apples in the baking dish, covering them completely.
Bake the apple crisp in the preheated oven for 40-45 minutes, or until the topping turns golden brown and the apples are tender when pierced with a fork.
Remove the apple crisp from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes before serving. You can enjoy it warm or at room temperature. Serve it as is or pair it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream for an extra indulgent treat.
