The Perfect Apple Crisp

Today is Day 17 of #Blogtober14 (aka blog every day in October), brought to you by Helene in Between and The Daily Tay. Today's topic is "I'm an expert at...".  To play along, check out the daily prompts here.

If you ask my husband, he will probably laugh when you say, "Is Mar a good baker?". He will then go on to tell you that the first time I try a new baking recipe, I nail it (true story). But then, because it was so good, I get a little too confident, make a few little tweaks, and then butcher it every attempt there after (also true story). However, he will tell you that one thing I bake really really really well is an apple crisp. I would even consider myself an expert, but there I go being too confident again.

When my sister in law and I went apple picking a few weeks back, we over did it by about 1/2 a bushel. I think the excitement and the atmosphere got the best of us. BUT, lots of apples means lots of apple crisp, and in my house, there have been no complaints.

Today I'm sharing my recipe for the perfect apple crisp. With just the perfect ratio of apple-cinnamony goodness to crust, this recipe will surely be a family, and tummy, pleaser.

The Perfect Apple Crisp
Serves: 9 people (6 if you live in my house)

The filling:
4-5 medium to large apples, peeled and sliced
lemon juice
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground nutmeg

The topping:
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup oatmeal
1/2 cup butter, cold and diced

1.  Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
2.  Peel, core and slice the apples. Toss in lemon juice to prevent browning.
3.  Add sugar and spices to sliced apples and combine.
4.  Place apple mixture in a 9x9'' baking dish, spreading evenly.
5.  In a separate bowl, combine flour, sugars, oatmeal and cold butter.
6.  Scatter flour mixture evenly over top of the apples.
7.  Bake for 30-45 minutes, until top is brown and the apples bubbly. Broil for 2-3 minutes if desired.
8.  Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.
