Apple Crisp - Perfect and Easy
I adapted this from a 50-year-old peach crisp recipe. Although it works well with peaches, it works even better with fresh, crisp cooking apples.
Recipe Summary test
Do not overmix the topping, and NEVER cream it. The topping should be gently cut into the butter so that the butter remains in small lumps. This will result in a light, crunchy topping for the apples. Also, in a pinch, you don't need to sift the dry ingredients. Just carefully stir them together until mixed (prior to adding the butter).
