A friend from work picked up a peck of honey crisp apples for me from a local orchard…
Yes. An entire peck of honey crisp apples.
Yes. I am lucky.
Yes. I know you’re jealous.
No. I will not share.
Dave and I have been eating about 2 a day but I’m still concerned that we’re not eating them fast enough, so I have been thinking of things I want to make with them. Apple pies are on the top of the list, but I just don’t have the time to devote to them just yet.
After dinner tonight I looked at the pile of apples and thought, “how about some apple crisp with my honey crisp?” And so I made some.
Honey Crisp Apple Crisp
6 medium apples, peeled and sliced
1 c. rolled oats
1/4 c. butter, softened
3/4 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. flour
pinch of salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Place the apples in a 13×9 baking dish and sprinkle with cinnamon. Mix the remaining ingredients and sprinkle over the apples/cinnamon.
Bake for about 30-35 minutes.
It makes me think of the restaurant back home called The Dream that serves amazing apple crisp. My dad eats there so often and always requests the apple crisp with extra crisp that now the waitresses just know when he comes in!
This crisp is kind of dry, but I like it that way. If you like ooey, gooey crisp, this isn’t your recipe. But it would taste really good with some ice cream or a little milk. I ate mine plain but Dave ate it with milk and was raving about it! Well, I was raving about it too, but it sounds more credible if I say it was Dave.
I also like that I don’t feel as though I clogged an artery. The honey crisps are perfectly sweet and tart that they don’t need too much added to enhance the flavor.
And no. I will not share.
How do you like your crisp? Ooey and gooey, or dry? More crisp or more apple?
