The Finest Apple Crisp Recipe
Could there be a better cure this time of year? This time of year in season with the abundance of apples. Plus, I really like that this apple crisp that is simple does not require as much work but it has flavors.
This homemade apple crisp is packed with fresh, juicy apples which are perfectly sweetened and baked until perfectly tender. And do not even get me started on that crumb! It is golden brown, crispy perfection.
Trust me, this apple crisp are the highlight of any meal. If I had it my way this could be the meal:-RRB- I mean.
Strategies for the Best Apple Crisp
Make certain to slice your apples so that they become fully tender. Nobody needs a apple in their own apple crisp.
Stick with granny smith apples for consistent results.
In case you only have salted butter hand, reduce the salt in the topping to 1/8 tsp and omit the salt in the filling.
Serve this homemade apple crisp freshly baked and hot. It'll be okay for a few days, but so I enjoy it fresh, the topping does begin to soften up.
