Alix's Apple Crisp

OK, I make mine by eyeballing so my measurements may be screwy, but here goes my take on it all.

6 apples peeled and sliced as you like (if you want slices use a mandolin for even sizing)
2/3 cup butter softened
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup oatmeal (any type)
1/2 flour
cinnamon if you like it

Mix sugar, butter, flour and oats together until crumbs are about pea sized. Use a pastry blender or if you are like me, your hands. Mix about 1/3 of the crumb stuff in with the apples. Then dump the rest on top and bake at 350 for about an hour.

I also make this mixed with rhubarb, or just with rhubarb, it is FABULOUS.

Alix, do you prefer light or dark brown sugar when you make an apple crisp?

I always use Golden Brown sugar just because that is more easily available to me.

Yum! DH would love this. I have issues making crisps, they don't crisp. I've never tried mixing some into the fruit, though. I'm going to try this tonight. What type of apples do you prefer or find that work the best?

That's just how I make mine, Alix...it's so delicious served warm with a scoop of good vanilla ice cream.

I prefer Granny's for any kind of baking. And I think that if you want the top to REALLY crisp you need to cheat a bit. Make sure your dish is quite full and near the end stick it under the broiler for a few seconds to carmelize the top a bit. Got to have LOTS of brown sugar and butter in it for that to work well though.

Keep in mind that my recipe is very approximate. You can add more of any ingredient pretty safely!

What's the flour for in the recipe you never said?? Just throw in with the crumb mix? Wanna try this in the next few days, I love apple crisp.
