Scale:

Ingredients

for the apple part

  • 6 large apples (3 granny smith, 3 sweeter variety)
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons corn starch
  • 1 Tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt

for the crisp topping

  • 3/4 cup butter, cut into cubes
  • 1 1/3 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 Tablespoon ground cinnamon

Instructions

  1. Butter a 9 x 13 inch pan and preheat the oven to 375°F. Set the pan aside.
  2. In a large bowl mix together the sugars, cornstarch, spices and salt.
  3. Peel and core the apples before slicing into thin 1/8 – 1/4″ slices. Add the apples to sugar mixture and toss to combine. You can use two big wooden spoons to do this, but I like to use my hands instead. Add the apples to the buttered dish and arrange in an even layer. Set aside.
  4. In a medium bowl, stir together the oats, flour, sugars, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Use pastry cutter, a fork or your hands to cut the butter into the mixture until it resembles wet sand and clumps together. Sprinkle the mixture evenly over the apples.
  5. Bake at 375°F for 10 minutes before reducing the temperature to 350°F and baking for 35 more minutes or until the topping is golden brown and the apple layer is bubbling. Allow to cool before eating. We recommend serving with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream 🙂

Notes

  1. We recommend using a mixture of different apples to vary and deepen the apple flavor. We like to use 3 granny smith apples to make sure you have some hearty, tarter cooking apples to complement 3 fun, sweeter apples. Feel free to use whatever you hand (McIntosh, Pink Lady, Envy, Gala,  Braeburn, Honey Crisp etc.)
