Mary's Apple Crisp


Prep Time

20 minutes

Prep Notes

This crisp is best if you mix the apples.  In the fall, I like to use Courtlands, Macintosh, and Zestars, but in the winter, I'll use Granny Smith's which are readily available. 

Cooking Time

30 minutes

Yields

6

Ingredients

6 medium tart apples sliced and peeled (Courtland, Macintosh, Granny Smith- a mixture is best!)

1-2T. real maple syrup

½ tsp cinnamon

Topping

¾ cup firmly packed organic (if possible) brown sugar

½ cup whole-wheat pastry flour

½ cup thick oats

¾ tsp cinnamon

½ tsp nutmeg

1/3 cup softened organic butter (can substitute Earth Balance sticks)

Pinch of salt

Directions

Preheat oven to 375

Spray an 8x8” square baking pan

Place the apple slices in the pan. Drizzle 1-2 T. real maple syrup over apples and sprinkle with ½ tsp cinnamon.  Mix topping ingredients together with a pastry blender or fork until crumbly.  Sprinkle over the apples.  Bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown and bubbly. 

Enjoy!
