This post is primarily for my kids to look in on whenever they want to make apple crisp. It's one of their favorite desserts and they love the way I make it. To be honest, I don't have a recipe, just a process so I made this one for them and tracked the amounts. Well, kinda!
Peel and core 16 Granny Smith apples. Use Grannys because they stay firm and hold their shape after being baked unlike many other apples.
Add 2 cups brown sugar, 1 cup flour, 1 tbsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp nutmeg, 1/2 tsp salt, 2 tsp vanilla extract and the juice of one lemon. Mix thoroughly.
For the crumble topping, combine 2 cups of quick cooking oats with 1 cup of flour. Mix well. Add 1 tsp cinnamon and a pinch of salt and mix well again. Add 1/2 lb of soft butter and knead into the dry mixture well.
