Default Apple Crisp

I'm about to make some for dinner tonight. I don't know what "dinner"
is going to be yet, but we're having apple crisp after it! Will see if
I can get it put together in the time it takes to preheat the oven.

It's cold and grey and drizzly. A fire in the fireplace wouldn't be a
bad thing and I'll bet Rob's got one going in the downstairs fireplace!

Can I stop by for dessert?
I've got some Schwan's BBQ riblets in the oven and I'll be doing some
Simply Potatoes in the frypan (and hoping I can keep them from
sticking) and green beans. But I don't have any dessert.

You don't have dessert, I have dessert; I don't have a meal, you have a
meal. A match made in Burnsville. :-)

Default Apple Crisp - Recipe

Sure. I usually use this recipe from Betty Crocker's Dinner For Two
cookbook (I received it 40 years ago as a bridal shower gift.)

Apple Crisp

2 medium sliced, pared, cored baking apples
1/3 to 1/2 cup brown sugar , packed
1/4 cup Gold Medal all-purpose flour
1/4 cup rolled oats
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
3 tbsp soft butter

Heat oven to 350 deg. Place apples in greased 9x5x3" loaf pan. blend
remaining ingredients until crumbly. Spread sugar-flour mixture over
apples. Bake 30-35 minutes until apples are tender and topping is
golden brown. Serve warm with cream, whipped ice cream, or hard sauce.
Makes 2 generous servings.

Notice I said that's how I usually do it. Tonight was different. I was
trying to figure out a way to make a Poor Woman's Apple Pie-like Crisp
with a crust on the bottom. I was just about to throw some butter and
flour together to make a pat-able crust layer on the bottom of a 9"
pottery plate I planned to use. I spotted on my counter a bag of
Cherry Crisp Topping Mix that I bought at the Arboretum a couple months
ago (because it came in a cute little cherry print cloth bag that I
wanted to put some of MY cherry jam into, that's why. For a gift. If
it's any of your business.). Its directions stated that half the mix
should be put on the bottom of a 9x9 pan. Huh. How convenient.

Here's where the topping mix came from:
http://oldmuffinfactory.com/id30.htm
I see that they sell it for $4 and I paid $5.25 at the Arboretum.

So I used that mix (sugar, flour, oats, cinnamon) mixed with butter and
patted half in the bottom of the pan, put four medium-large Haralson
apples (peeled, sliced, and cored) that I tossed with some flour, brown
sugar, and salt on top (high pile, let me tell you), then tried to put
the remaining topping on that. I decided to start baking it (375 deg
for about 45 minutes) and would then see if I couldn't put the rest of
the topping on it and finish baking. After about 30 minutes, it hadn't
settled much so I sort of mooshed the apples and topping around a little
and then put the rest of the topping on and continued to bake for about
15 minutes or so. When I took it out of the oven, it had settled a bit
and was a nice, lovely, apple crisp with a crusty bottom.

I served it up in bowls with a couple spoonsful of vanilla ice cream.
Pretty good.

It followed our supper of chili (half homemade, half canned Hormel
shoot me). Gotta tell you that the chili was mighty tasty. It's
still cold out, too. I just might fix a cup of bouillon to warm myself
before I hit the sheets.

I've put a couple pics on my jamlady website below.

What kind of apples will you use? I'd make an apple crisp if I could
find some Gravensteins, but I don't have time to go out to the farms
this week.

It's cold and grey and drizzly. A fire in the fireplace wouldn't be a

We're gray and drizzly here, but it's not cold until night and even
then, not so much -- got up to 70 degrees yesterday...

That second pic is good enough for a magazine! Methinks you have a future

I'm partial to Haralsons. They are abundant, a great pie apple, and
reasonably priced. They were born here 84 years ago.


I checked Wikipedia -- they sound very good:

"Haralson apples are crisp and juicy, having a tart flavor."

Unfortunately, not something I can get here in WA.

Here are links to
a couple of stories about apple development at the U of MN

http://www.startribune.com/535/story/688378.html
http://www.startribune.com/535/story/688159.html


Interesting! I loved this line, it seems to describe you Minny-Soda
folks so well:

"Horace Greeley used to write articles to encourage people to go west,
but he wrote, 'Go west, but don't go to Minnesota, because you can't
grow apples there,' Stushnoff said. There were a lot of proud
Scandinavian folks who said, 'We'll see about that.' "

As for Gravenstiens, Wikipedia describes them thusly:

"The Gravenstein apple is considered by many to be one of the best
all-around apples with a sweet, tart flavor, and is especially good
for baking and cooking."

They were discovered in 1669 in Denmark, but they don't keep well,
which is probably why they never caught on. DH swears we'll plant
some this Spring, and now that I finally found out how to pollinate
them. According to the nursery catalog I picked up at the Western
WA Fair, one of your Zestar trees will do it. Hormel's website
describes it as:

"crisp white grainy flesh that provides a slightly tart but sweet
and tangy tasting fruit"

http://www.hormel.com/kitchen/glossary.asp?id=36470

Sounds wonderful! I'll have to look into that one. Thanks for
the info, Barb... :-)

I think the most interesting thing I learned about apples in the last
year is that, regardless of pedigree, they will taste different
depending on where they are grown. I suppose it makes sense,but I'd
never thought about it at all. Guy was saying that the Honeycrisps are
grown in Washington but they're not the same as where they were born.
And I love that the U is making boatloads of bucks on licensing the
patent application.

Very true. We used to love picking MacIntosh and Cortlands at the
orchard when we lived in New England. Since moving to Colorado, I've
found Michigan MacIntosh that are mealy and tasteless. I don't think
I've seen the Cortlands at all. The tastiest apples we can get locally
are Galas and Fijis.

No, those are the British responses -- only it's usually more like
"mustn't complain, mustn't grumble"

really? things have changed then, because Michigan apples were full
of flavor and crisp - especially after I'd moved to CA and had
Washington and California apples to compare them to. Can't say I've
ever had a New England apple, but if the winters are colder than in
Michigan I don't doubt NE apples taste better.

I don't think
I've seen the Cortlands at all. The tastiest apples we can get locally

Merely OK. They are like choosing which one isn't the worst. I never
say "good", I say "not too bad". It could be worse, like a
"delicious" apple. Ugh! Wanna talk tasteless and mealy apples?
That's the epitome of it.
