"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."

Directions

{{model.addEditText}} Print
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease an 8-inch square baking dish.
  2. Arrange apple slices evenly in prepared baking dish. Sift flour, sugar, cinnamon, and salt in a bowl. Cut in butter using a pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse cornmeal; sprinkle over apples.
  3. Bake in preheated oven until topping is golden, 40 to 45 minutes. Cool slightly before serving.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • 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).
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

Loved it- reason giving it 4 stars vs. 5 is it is light on apples. I used 8 small/medium apples and that was a perfect ratio for the topping provided. I also added a little vanilla to the topp...
