Things You'll Need
- 3 cups sliced and peeled apples (I use Granny smith)
- 3 tablespoons orange juice
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
- 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 1/2 cup cold unsalted butter, cut into squares
1/2 cup brown sugar
Step 1: Coat the Apples
Combine apples, orange juice, granulated sugar, and cinnamon in a bowl and stir until apples are coated. Pour into a greased baking dish.
Step 2: Make the Topping
Combine flour, oats, brown sugar, and cubed cold butter into a bowl of a stand mixer with the paddle attachment and mix on medium speed until crumbly and the butter is broken up.
Step 3: Add Topping to the Apples
Evenly spread the oat topping over the apples.
Step 4: Bake the Crisp
Bake the apple crisp for 45 to 55 minutes until the topping is golden and apples are tender. Serve while hot.
This dessert is so comforting and delicious -- your family and friends are going to love it!
