I think I have perfected my Apple Crisp recipe....

I've been working on this one for a couple weeks now. I think I finally have it.

Allen’s Fantastic Apple Crisp
Makes: one 9 x 13” pan

I like to use a mix of Granny Smith and Macintosh apples for this one. It provides a balance between taste and texture. If you can find some really good-sized apples, you may want to go down to 7 apples. Also, if the juice or cider is really sweet, you may want to reduce it down to ½ c. Ice cream would go great with this dessert.

1 c all-purpose flour
¼ t baking powder
¼ t baking soda
1 c packed brown sugar
1 c quick-cooking oats
½ c butter, softened
9 apples, peeled, cored, and cut into wedges
¾ c white sugar
1 T all-purpose flour
1 t ground cinnamon
½ c apple juice
-or- apple cider

Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C). Sift together 1 c of the flour, baking powder, baking soda, oats, and brown sugar. Cut in the butter with a pastry blender or your hands. It should have a mealy texture, similar to coarse sand. Set aside. Mix the white sugar, 1 T flour, and ground cinnamon together, and toss with the apples. Place the sliced apples in a 9 x 13” pan. Pour the juice or cider evenly over all. Crumble the streusel topping evenly over the apple mixture. Bake at 350°F (175°C) for about 45 minutes.

only 9 small Gala apples. I had to use what we had, as the other batch was a "spur of the moment" thing. I'll probably do one more batch next week or so, just to confirm that the recipe I posted is good. Honestly, I think the batch I made was great, but since I used some cider, instead of apple juice, it came out a little sweeter than expected, and Laurie, my other half, who is diabetic, made a comment that it was awfully sweet.

Gee thanks, Alan. Now I'm going to have to go buy some second-rate apples and try to make this one tomorrow! By golly, it sure sounds great -- thanks for the recipe!

I'm gonna try this. I actually spent an hour today looking at different cobbler/crumble recipes. I was looking specifically for a recipe that had brown sugar in the topping.

Thanks!!!!
