Apple Crisp

Here is your recipe for the day. :)


A dear lady shared this with me years ago. They own the ranch and since moving to NM over 8 years ago, I've only seen her once. I think we've seen her husband 3 times. That makes me sad because she and her husband are wonderful people. We've worked for them for 18 years and they are thoughtful, kind, honest, generous and just plain hard working good folk. T.J. is also an amazing cook. I think she said she found this recipe in an old Farm Bureau cookbook and I make it often. It works great for a small crew. I make it in an over-sized 12" ceramic deep dish pie plate that she also happened to give to me as a gift one time.

This feeds about 8 when you serve it with ice cream. She wrote a note at the bottom of the recipe card where it says 'serves'. Her note says: Depends on how much Gary eats! I love that!

Apple Crisp

6-8 tart apples
2/3 C sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 Tbsp lemon juice
3 Tbsp butter
1 C flour
1/2 C brown sugar
1/4 C butter, melted

*Preheat oven to 400°. Peel and slice apples into baking dish. Mix sugar, salt, cinnamon, & lemon juice in a small bowl. Sprinkle over apples. Dot with 3 Tbsp butter. In a 2nd small bowl, blend flour brown sugar, and melted butter to crumb like consistency. Sprinkle over apples. Bake for 30-40 minutes. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.

My recipe is almost identical with the exception of 1/2 tsp. of nutmeg that your recipe doesn't have. It's absolutely the best apple crisp I've ever eaten.
