Cinnamon Apple Crisp

Submitted by Isa

Prep time: 15 minutes | cooking time: 1 hour | makes 8 -12 servings

A perfect, basic apple crisp recipe. Add raisins or cranberries if you like. I use Granny Smith apples but you can use whatever kind you've got.

Equipment:

Two Mixing Bowls, 9 x 13 Baking Dish (glass is best), Aluminum Foil

Ingredients

Filling ingredients:

4 pounds (about 8) apples, peeled, and cut in 1/4 inch slices

juice of 1/2 a lemon

1-tablespoon arrowroot powder (substitution corn or potato starch)

2 teaspoons cinnamon

1/8 teaspoon nutmeg

1/8 teaspoon allspice

tiny pinch cloves (about 1/16 teaspoon)

1/2 cup pure maple syrup

Topping Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups rolled oats

1/3 cup all purpose flour

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/8 teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons canola oil

2 tablespoons pure maple syrup

1 teaspoons vanilla

Directions

Preaheat oven to 350. In a large bowl squeeze lemon juice over sliced apples. Add the arrow root and spices making sure all apples are coated. Move apple mixture to the baking dish and drizzle the maple syrup over it. Cover with tin foil and bake for 35 minutes.

Meanwhile prepare the topping. Sift dry ingredients together, and in a separate bowl, mix wet ingredients well. Fold wet into dry mixing with a fork as you go along, until well coated and crumbly.

When apples are done baking, remove from oven and toss, then flatten them evenly with the back of a spatula or wooden spoon. Sprinkle the topping evenly over the apple mixture and bake uncovered for 25-30 minutes, until top feels crispy and serve warm.
