Mammy's Latest Apple Crisp
This is the real thing, folks. Make sure you use good baking apples (I used Golden Delicious). The key is to not melt the butter for the topping.
Makes one 9x13 inch pan.
Normal Servings: 12
Heininge Servings: Hopefully 6, maybe 4
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
9 baking apples
Juice from one lemon
2 TBS flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white flour
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. salt
1 cup butter (2 sticks) chilled and cut into little cubes
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup chopped pecans (or walnuts; I prefer pecans)
FILLING: Peel and core the apples and dice them into 1/2 inch pieces. Or into slices, whatever you prefer. Toss them in a bowl with the sugar, flour and cinnamon and then put them in a baking pan.
TOPPING: Mix the dry ingredients and then cut the little cubes of butter into the mix. It should be crumbly. Mix in the oats and the nuts, and while you put it on top of the filling, squeeze it in your hand so it's clumped together. Scatter the topping all over the apples.
Bake for about 45 minutes or until golden brown and bubbling. Serve warm with ice cream or whipped cream.
