This apple dessert recipe is adapted from a 50-year-old peach crisp recipe. Although it works well with peaches, it works even better with fresh, crisp cooking apples. If you're short on time, you can skip sifting the dry ingredients; instead, stir them together until combined, then mix with butter.

  • Arrange apple slices evenly in the prepared baking dish. Sift flour, sugar, cinnamon, and salt into a bowl. Cut in butter using a pastry blender, or 2 knives, until mixture resembles coarse cornmeal; sprinkle over apples.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until topping is golden, 40 to 45 minutes. Cool slightly before serving.

Cook's Note:

Do not overmix the topping, and never cream it. The butter should be gently cut into the flour so it remains in small lumps. This will result in a light, crunchy topping for the apples.
