I've made this apple crisp recipe for years because I didn't think it could get any better. But I've found that using Al's Exclusive Ice Apples in this recipe takes this crisp to a whole new delicious level! Pick up some Ice Apples from Al's and make this sweet dessert at your next holiday gathering.
- 7 Large Al's Ice Apples
- 1 TBS Lemon Juice
- ¾ cup White Sugar
- 3 TBS Cornstarch
- 2 tsp Cinnamon
- ½ tsp Nutmeg
- ¼ tsp Ginger
- Pinch of Cardamom
- ½ cup All purpose Flour
- ¼ cup Brown Sugar
- ¼ cup White Sugar
- ¼ tsp Baking Powder
- 1 tsp Cinnamon
- ¼ tsp Ground Ginger
- ¼ tsp Nutmeg
- 1/3 cup Cold Butter, cut into cubes
- ½ cup Rolled Oats
- Preheat the oven to 350 ° and grease a 13x9in. baking dish.
- Peel, core, and slice Ice Apples into ¼ inch slices. Place cut apples into water with the lemon juice.
- In a large bowl add Sugar, Cornstarch, Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Ginger, and Cardamom.
- Drain the apples and add them too the bowl with the sugar and seasonings. Mix Well.
- Once everything has been mixed thoroughly together add the apples to the greased baking dish.
- Set apples aside while you work on the streusel topping.
- Mix the first seven streusel ingredients in a mixer on low.
- Add the Butter and Rolled Oats. Mix on medium until the mixture resembles wet sand.
- Take a handful of mixture and squeeze it to compact it. Crumble over top of crisp.
- Place Apple Crisp into the center of the oven. Bake for 45 minutes or until top is nice and brown and the filling is starting to bubble on the edges.
- Adding the Lemon Juice to the cut apples will help keep the apples from browning.
- Adding cornstarch to the apple mixture helps to thicken the liquid that the apples would produce and it keeps your crisp from becoming soggy.
- For an optional topping you can melt caramels on top of the streusel to add a caramel apple flavor to your crisp - because who doesn’t love caramel apples?
