Another test run for the Thanksgiving feast – apple crisp! We had a friendsgiving on Monday and I brought the apple crisp with vanilla ice cream. Classic and American.
The entire meal was incredible. Michaela and Laura outdid themselves: roasted
turkey chicken, homemade cranberry sauce, butternut squash soup, green beans, sweet potato gratin, kale salad, gravy, on and on… I didn’t eat breakfast until 10:30 am the next morning.
Apple Crisp with Oatmeal Crumb Topping
3 apples (2 gala, 1 granny smith), sliced thinly
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 teaspoon maple syrup
1 tablespoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup oats
1/3 cup flour
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
dash of salt
4 tablespoons cold butter
vanilla ice cream (optional – but not really)
Preheat oven to 350. In a large bowl, combine apple slices through lemon juice and toss to coat. Dump into non-stick cake/pie pan or 8×8 baking dish. In the same bowl, combine remaining ingredients and crumble together with your hands until mixture forms a cohesive crumbly mixture. Pat crumble on top of apple slices and bake for about 50 minutes, or until browned on top and bubbly. Let cool for at least 15 minutes and serve with vanilla ice cream!!
