Super Yummy Apple Crisp

I have a real sister, and a few bunch of honorary sisters. Two of them have been my honorary sisters since I was nine. We’re talking 1995, people. Side ponytails and all. Anyways, their mama makes delicious apple crisp, and the recipe was recently shared with me. I, of course, made it nearly immediately. Results? So good I didn’t even take a picture (it was gone that fast.)
Mama H’s Super Yummy Apple Crisp
As written by LA(H)P

1. Peel & cut apples, to, you know, kinda big but kinda small pieces.  I like to go a little thin but long. The thinner they are the more mushy they get. Use enough apples to fill your pan about half way up. (Jennie side note: I used three apples.)
2. Lay them apples down in a long pan, then pour 1/2 cup water in.
3. This is how you make the stuff that goes on top:
(a) 3/4 cups flour
(b) 1 cup brown sugar
(c)  1 Tsp cinnamon
(d) 1/2 cup butter (a.k.a. a whole stick-a-butter)
(e) 1/4 Tsp. Salt
Mix all this stuff together with a fork and then put it on top of the apples.
Note: The better the butta, the better The Crisp.

Okay, so you should have pre-heated the oven to 350 F, but I always forget till I get to this part of the directions anyways so it’s no biggie if you didn’t. Then you cook it for however long it takes to get the apples “tender” and the crust crusty and dark. It’ll smell so good that you’ll want to take it out before then. Expect 45-60 minutes. (Jennie’s side note: My oven was preheated and my crisp was in for about 50 minutes, but my oven is on the cold side…)

Note: if your pan is 13×9 then you want to use 1 1/2 times the recipe.  so a whole half the recipe more, that should be easy since we’re math team captains! (Jennie’s side note: I was not a math team captain.)

So let it cool a little while and then load ice cream and whipped cream all over it and then die because it will be so g.d. good.

Invite me over, I want some.

And, some photographic evidence:

    It looks so delicious! I may make it this weekend!!

  2. Sounds awesome.

    Would that be plain flour or self-rising flour??

      All-purpose flour is what I used, but I’d imagine you could also use whole wheat, or white-wheat. You don’t need rising because it does rise at all, just kind of crumbles!

    *unbleached flour.
    My honorary mama, Mrs. Palluzzi, taught me that 🙂

    Jennie you brought this recipe to a whole new level with your apple peeler and perfectly cut apples. I want one! Lauren is soooo on the opposite side of doing this perfectly ( you can tell by her quantities and what size pan in her recipe, oh also that the butter has to put out to soften before mixing) but her apple crisp always comes out delicious:)
    I am glad that everyone is enjoying.
