Old Fashioned Apple Crisp


I love the desserts our Mom’s and grandmother’s used to make, don’t you?  Nothing fancy at all…just simple desserts that were so easy to make and so wholesome.  And the best part was the heavenly smell of cinnamon and apples when you walked in the door.  I love this dessert!

Old Fashioned Apple Crisp

5 pounds Fuji or Granny Smith apples
Grated zest of one orange
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed orange juice
Grated zest of one lemon
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg


1 1/2 cups flour
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 cup rolled oats (not instant)
1/2 pound (2 sticks) cold unsalted butter, diced

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 9 by 14 by 2-inch oval baking dish.

Peel, core, and cut the apples into large chunks or wedges. Combine the apples with the lemon and orange zest and the sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg.  Pour in the lemon and orange juice and stir until everything is combined.  Pour  into the buttered dish.

For The Topping
Combine the flour, both sugars, salt, oats, and cold butter in the bowl of an electric mixer. 
Mix on low speed until the mixture is crumbly and the butter is the size of peas. Scatter evenly over the apples.

Place the crisp on a sheet pan and bake for 1 hour until the top is brown and the apples are bubbly. Serve warm.
