Apple Crisp

I love fall and one of my favorite things about fall is fresh apples. I have been making applesauce, apple pies and apple crisps for years, but I just discovered this recipe about a month ago and I have to say it is one of my favorite apple recipes!

Classic Apple Crisp

From Better Homes and Gardens http:///

1 1/2 cups flour

1 cup granulated sugar

1/3 cup packed brown sugar

3/4 tsp ground cinnamon

1/2 tsp kosher salt

2/3 cup soy-free margarine (the recipe calls for butter) cut in pieces

8 cups peeled apples, sliced 1/2 inch thickness

1/4 to 1/3 cup granulated sugar

1 tsbp flour

1/2 tsp kosher salt

1/8 tsp ground nutmeg

Heat oven to 375 degrees. In a large bowl combine the 1 1/2 cups flour, 1 cup granulated sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon and 1/2 tsp salt. With your fingers work the butter into the mixture until it just begins to cling together.

In a 4 qt bowl toss together apples and lemon juice. In a small bowl combine the 1/4 to 1/3 cup granulated sugar, tbsp flour, salt and nutmeg.

Sprinkle apples with sugar-nutmeg mixture, then with your hands mix together. Heap into a lightly greased 2 qt baking dish. Cover the top of the apples with the crumb topping.

Cover the crisp with parchment, then foil. Bake in the oven 20 minutes. Carefully remove foil and paper and return to oven, bake 30 to 40 minutes longer, or until top is golden and apples are just tender. Let cool 15 to 30 minutes before serving.
