Easy Apple Crisp Recipe

Okay, I know I posted an Apple Butter recipe just last week, but I found myself with a bunch of apples lately. I discovered  this apple crisp recipe from a book that I brought back with me from grandma and pa’s farm in Nebraska but I bet that the recipe book was originally owned by my Great Aunt Eunice, since she lived in Denver for many years. This recipe is quite simple, doesn’t require many ingredients and is tasty on it’s own or with a bowl of ice cream.

I will say that this dish doesn’t have the presentation points as a Brown Betty or Cobbler does, but it’s still very delicious!

Easy Apple Crisp
(serves 6)

6 tart apples
½ cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
½ cup water
½ cup general purpose flour
½ cup white sugar
3 tablespoons butter

Pare, core and slice apples. Put in a greased baking dish. Mix together the brown sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over apples. Pour water over all. Mix together the flour and white sugar and cut in the butter. Sprinkle this crumbly mixture over the apples. Bake in moderate oven (350 degrees) 50 – 55 minutes, or until apples are tender and the top is brown. Serve after slightly cooled with whipped topping, sweetened cream to which has been added some vanilla flavoring.
