How to Make an Apple Crisp Recipe

  • In a sauce pan, melt ¼ cup BUTTER and simmer over med-low heat until butter begins to color, then set aside to cool.
  • In a large bowl, beat 1 EGG and ½ cup SUGAR together until smooth.
  • Add in VANILLA, cooled BUTTER and chopped APPLES. Mix well and set bowl aside.
  • In another bowl, combine FLOUR, 2 cups of the OATS (reserve 1 cup oats for later), CINNAMON, GINGER, BROWN SUGAR, and mix well.
  • Add in 1 cup unsoftened BUTTER and cut into the mixture until about pea-sized.
  • Add reserved OATS and toasted PECANS and mix.
  • Spread half the crisp mixture out in an ungreased 9 X 13 baking dish. Spread the apple mixture evenly over the bottom crisp layer. Then spread the remainder of the crisp mixture over the apple layer; this will create three layers in the dish: crisp/apple/crisp. If desired, dress the top of the crisp with a few apple slices for decoration.
  • Place into an oven preheated to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and bake for 45-50 minutes, until the top of the apple crisp is toasty.
  • Serve with ice cream or creamy whipped topping.
