One of the first recipes I ever learned to make was my Nanny’s Apple Crisp. I was totally intimidated by pie crust back then.  This is one 0f those recipes that is just really hard to mess up. The ingredients don’t have to be measured precisely and you can make it in a small baking dish for just a few or in a big pan for a crowd.

Recipe type: Dessert
An easy flexible recipe that is really hard to mess up. And it's delicious!
Here's all you need:
  • Pie apples - I like Granny Smith (peeled and sliced)
  • Sugar
  • Cinnamon
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 beaten egg
  • butter
  1. Preheat oven to 450
  1. Slice enough apples to fill your baking dish
  2. Add sugar and cinnamon to taste and stir to coat apples well
  1. Stir together dry ingredients
  2. Add egg and stir until crumbly
  3. Sprinkle over apples as thick as you like. Don't feel like you have to use it all, but my family likes a nice thick coating of the crumbly topping.
  4. Dot the top with bits of butter.
  5. Bake at 450 until topping is lightly browned and filling is bubbling. The time will depend how large your Apple Crisp. I start checking at about 20 minutes for a small crisp, and 35 for a large one, then check every 5 minutes or so until it looks done.
