Apple Crisp

19/02/2018

This apple crisp is one of my earliest recipes and while I was preparing it one Sunday, I remembered I had not posted it on my recipes on Kikiliciouss.

I like it not only for the marvelous texture: crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, but also for being so easy to cook. It is the perfect recipe if you have sudden visitors, or if you just want to treat yourself.

  • You can use green or red apples, it’s up to you.
  • Also the amount of sugar; in case you’re using red apples which are sweeter use less sugar.
  • Cut them in large or small chunks, depending on your preference. But whatever it may be, it will affect the baking time and the final texture of the baked apples.
  • *Personally, I prefer to cut my apples in average pieces, just like I would for a fruit salad.
  • If you don’t like almonds, use whatever nut you prefer (even though they go best with apples).
  • If you’re using almonds leave them as they are, or cut them in half.
  • It is best served with vanilla ice cream.

Method:

 

Preheat your oven to 180°C.

In a big bowl add all the filling ingredients and mix with a spoon, so that the apples

Set aside and in the same way as filling, prepare the crisp.

Work the butter with your fingers until you have the crisp ready.

You can bake this dessert wherever you want, even though I recommend using a glass baking dish in order to watch the apples while baking.

Place the apple mixture in your baking dish or dishes and with a spoon add on top the crisp dough.

Make sure that the apples are completely covered with the topping.

Bake the dessert until the upper layer reaches a golden brown look and the apples are softened.

Serve warm or lukewarm.
