APPLE CRISP FOR TWO


YUMMMMM!!!

I call this "Apple Crisp for Two", although I guess that is a bit of a misnomer. It actually makes 3 large desserts (if you include the ice cream). I guess I should have called it "Apple crisp for two (and a little more for later)" ??   

We love a good fruit crisp with a slightly crunchy (but not HARD crunchy) topping and lots of gooey filling. That perfectly describes this dessert. It is one of the best crisps we've tried in years!!!!!

APPLE LAYER
2 large Granny Smith apples (see note)
� cup granulated sugar
� cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon all purpose flour
� teaspoon cinnamon
pinch of nutmeg (optional)

Peel, core and thinly slice the apples. Toss with the above ingredients and place in a greased baking dish (I use a 9" x 5" loaf pan). Sprinkle two tablespoons of water over the filling. NOTE: Do NOT mix the water into the above mixture, just sprinkle it evenly OVER the filling; trust me it works perfectly and makes the BEST sauce.

TOPPING LAYER
1/4 cup quick oats
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon baking powder
2 tablespoons melted butter

Use a spoon and mix the topping ingredients until everything seems coated with butter. Evenly sprinkle it over the apple layer (but do not mix it in).

Bake in pre-heated 350 oven for 30-35 minutes or until apples are tender.  Let cool 15 minutes before serving (if you can wait that long). We like ours, served with ice cream.



NOTE: Make sure you use a good baking apple like Granny Smith. Regular eating apples don't work well in this kind of recipe (they get mushy).

ENJOY !!!
