We ventured to Michelle's aunt & uncle's house the other day for an afternoon meal. We were in charge of bringing the dessert. They live about 45 minutes from us, so we needed something that would travel alright. We decided on apple crisp. We just popped it in the oven for a few minutes during the meal to heat it back up and voila - dessert was served.
Here's what you need:
8-9 apples (enough to fill an 8" pie plate)
1 Tbsp-ish lemon juice
1/2 Tbsp-ish cinnamon
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup white sugar
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
Here's what you do:
Start by peeling, coring and slicing your apples. We also always coat our apples in a bit of lemon juice to prevent them from browning. You don't have to do that if you don't want.
Pile the apples into your pie plate and coat with cinnamon.
Pour the water over the top of the apples.
In a large bowl, beat together the butter and sugar.
Slowly add the flour. Mix it all together until it crumbles and the flour is incorporated completely.
Sprinkle the entire mixture over the top of the apples.
Bake for 30-45 minutes, or until your crisp has hardened and is golden brown.
Top with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream.
