Autumn. Cool breezes, old sweaters and steaming mugs of apple cider. I love fall!
And I LOVE the baking possibilities that it brings.
Apple Crisp is an autumn favorite in our house. It’s easy to throw together and is fantastic with vanilla ice cream. This recipe, like many others, is courtesy of my Mom, the Mistress of Baking.
2 sticks of butter, cut into small pieces*
2.5 cups of flour
2 tsp. cinnamon
1/8 tsp. cardamom
1.5 cup dark brown sugar
2/3 cup white sugar
1. Crumble flour, butter, sugar and spices together with pastry cutter, until it looks like homogenous crumbs.
2. Peel and cut 8 apples and put into lightly buttered 9×13 pan.
3. Top evenly with crumbs and bake at 375 for approximately. 30mins. Remove when apples are bubbling, crumbs are deep golden brown and apples test soft when pierced with tester or knife. Allow to cool slightly and enjoy!
*I’m looking for a way to make this more healthy. Any ideas about how to use less/substitute butter?
