I’m not a good cook, and I don’t bake very well, but I can make a mean apple crisp. Cause it’s so easy! I’m talking easy like not-peeling-the-apples easy. Here’s what you do.
1. Grease your pan. I used an 8 x 8 x 2 inch pan, but you can pretty much use whatever size you like. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
2. Cut your apples into pieces no larger than an inch. You need about 4 cups, but it’s not crucial. You can peel them if you want to, but there’s no need. The skins are where the nutrients are at anyway. Throw those bad boys in the pan and poor about a tablespoon of lemon juice over them, then stir to coat the apples. Lemon juice helps to bring out the sweetness.
3. In a bowl, mix 1/2 cup softened butter or margarine, 3/4 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup flour, 1/2 cup oats, 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon, 3/4 teaspoon nutmeg, and a spoonful of honey. I’m a great believer in “eyeballing” it, so the only things I really measure are the butter, flour, and sugar, and even then I’m far from accurate.
4. Combine the ingredients above using a pasty blender or fork, until you get a nice crumbly texture. Spread the crumbs over the top of the apples, and bake for about 30 minutes, until crumbs are crispy and apples are soft when poked with a fork.
