shandy's Apple Crisp

  • duboo 10 months ago
    I highly recommend this one. In spite of my best efforts to sabotage this recipe it still came out great. I think it's probably the best apple crisp I've ever had. So much so, that instead of bringing a fantastic apple pie to dinner (noon) at my parent's tomorrow, I'm making another one of these and bringing it. Full review: Apple Crisp

    I promised myself I would make a good amount of my saved recipes before saving any new one's (WAAAY to many in my bookmarks), but I just broke that promise...hehe! This is something my husband would drool over me making, so I just had to save it! Looks fantastic Duboo!

    Oh my. I have been craving apple crisp lately! This looks good. I'll have to try to cut the recipe though. Thank you for showing us!

    DB, I love apple crisp. Never make it tho. Buts thats because I would sit there and eat the whole thing. But I would have to have ice cream with it : )

    Mrpiggy - I did have ice cream with it, but I was in such a hurry to eat this (still had room after ribs and twice baked taters) that I forgot to snap a picture with the ice cream. By the time I remembered, the IC was put away. I sincerely tried to stop at 1 piece of this, but had three because it was that good.

    Is it safe to assume that the baking dish didn't need to be buttered or sprayed prior to putting in the first ingredient? ;-)

    I would jump all over this but my apples are bookmarked for a cake.

    Windy, I didn't oil my pan and it came out fine.

    Okay, Duboo, that's cool!! I cooked for an assisted living facility for a while, and the 3rd shift did our baking. I LOVED their apple crisp, and occasionally they'd throw in some raisins. Wish they could've made strawberry-rhubarb crisp, but we had trouble getting rhubarb (fresh or frozen, either one).

    I made this to take to my MIL's for a family get together. It was devoured!!! I didn't personally taste it, my food plan won't allow :) but everyone gave it 5 stars. Now, there was only 1 problem that I'm not going to deduct a star for, just because it was so delicious, but there was SO much water left in the bottom of the dish after baking I ended up carefully pouring out as much as I could for visual appearance. I think a couple of Tbs would be enough, instead of the 1/2 cup. Or maybe a little more flour than 1 Tbs to help thicken it more. Anyway, left my pic. on the page :)

    It looks delicious! I wonder if not peeling the apples had something to do with the leftover liquid? I'm not much a baker/dessert person so I don't really know.

    HHHmmm... well if that was the case I wish the recipe would have said to peel them! Pouring the 1/2 cup of water in didn't bother me because I figured it would thicken up with the flour and make a nice thick apple filling. I just don't know!

    Duboo's pic shows some liquid Michelle..I would think there should be no liquid at all in a crisp recipe..but then again, I have never made one:) Next time use less water and maybe a little more flour..since it was so delicious, I'm sure you'll want to try this recipe again!
    Love your pic! Yum:)

    I agree, Marie, there should be no liquid in apple crisp. Michelle, I think the problem is adding water to the apples in addition to the sugar, which draws out the liquid, anyway. Think of apple pie, where you add only sugar, flour, and spices to the apples and no water. There's too much liquid going on in this recipe, so omit the water.

    Ditto what they said. :-)

    Gotcha, I will definitely omit the water next time, don't the apples give off juices as they cook anyway?

    You're right, Ml2c, apples do give off some juices as they cook. This is our favorite apple crisp and, as you can see, it has nothing added to the apples and we find them to be plenty juicy: Apple Crisp
