Ingredients

FOR THE APPLE CRISP:

  • 4 medium honey crisp apples cored and sliced 1/4 an inch thick
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup quick cooking oats
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/3 cup salted butter at room temperature, plus more for greasing baking pan
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 375° and grease an 9x9 (or 9-inch cake pan) with butter.
  • In a medium bowl combine the sugar, flour, oats, cinnamon and nutmeg. Stir to combine and add in the chopped pecans.
  • Add in the softened butter and blend (using a pastry blender) until combined.
  • Arrange the apples in an even layer in the prepared baking dish.
  • Pinch and/or sprinkle the oatmeal mixture over top of the apples.
  • Bake on the middle rack for 30 minutes (see notes).
  • We like our apple crisp served warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and warm caramel sauce drizzled over top.

Notes

*We like our apples tender but with a little bit of firmness. For more tender apples you may want to bake for longer in the oven, cover the top of the crisp with foil to avoid burning.
