09 Jan Winter Chill Away Apple Crisp
2.5 lbs. medium Granny Smith and Golden Delicious apples (about 5 or 6), peeled, cored and sliced 1/4 inch thick.
2 to 3 tbl. granulated sugar
3/4 tsp. gound cinnamon
1/4 tsp. fine salt
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup uncooked rolled oats
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
4 tbl. cold, unsalted butter (1/2 stick), cut into small pieces, plus more to coat the dish.
Heat the oven to 350°F and arrange a rack in the middle. Lightly coat an 8-by-8-inch baking dish with butter. Combine the apples, granulated sugar, cinnamon, and 1/8 teaspoon of the salt in a large bowl and toss to coat. Place the apple mixture in the prepared baking dish and set aside.
Using the same bowl as for mixing the apples, mix together the brown sugar, oats, flour, and remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt until evenly combined.
With your fingertips, blend in the butter pieces until small clumps form and the butter is well incorporated, about 2 minutes.
Sprinkle the topping evenly over the apples and bake until the streusel is crispy and the apples are tender, about 50 to 60 minutes.
I like to add dried cranberries and raisins too-really any fruit combo will be delicious. Pair yours with one of our WildAire Wines today!
