Does anyone have a rally exceptional recipe for apple crisp that uses golden delicious apples? Thanks! Barb.
I never use golden delicious unless they are really fresh....they keep so well so long but do get mealy....even while still looking good, that I am wary of them. But if you know your apples are good and juicy this should work well.
6 Cups apples cut into 1/4 - 1/2 inch pieces
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup flour
2 beaten eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup of dried fruit....either golden raisins, or chopped dried apricots or dried cranberries or cherries. I like cherries and golden raisins best.
3/4 cup flour
3/4 cups brown sugar
1 stick butter
1 Tablespoon ground cinnamon.
3/4 cup oatmeal
1/2 cup chopped pecans (optional)
Cut apples (peeled) into 1/4 - 1/2 inch pieces. Cover with 3/4 cup sugar and let stand 1 hour
Beat eggs and vanilla and add to rhubarb
toss the dried fruit with the flour and mix with apples and eggs. Dump into a buttered dish. 8 1/2 by 11
Mix flour, butter, ground cinnamon. Process in food processor as pastry dough. or in a bowl with a pastry blender Pour into a bowl and mix with oatmeal nuts and brown sugar. Crumble together. Put on top of fruit.
Bake in preheated oven at 375 deg F for 45 to 60 minutes (until top is crisp and apples are tender)
Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.
Basic Apple Crisp
5-6 apples, peeled & sliced (I like Gala)
1-1/2 tsps cinnamon
Half cup water
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup flour
1 stick unsalted butter, diced
Fill an 8 x 8 baking dish with sliced apples. Sprinkle cinnamon over apples. Pour water over all.
Work together the sugar, flour and butter until crumbly. Spread over apples. Bake at 350 for 1 hour.
You can add a bit of fresh lemon juice to the apples if desired. I now add some crumbled almond slices to the topping to make it interesting.
Lindac... Used your recipe this weekend. We used dried blueberries. It is great! Will definitely be using this one again.
Glad you liked it...I find that the egg in there keeps it "neater"...the filling is a little thicker and it makes neater servings.
Never done blueberries......and I have some....maybe I better make an apple crisp.
