WHAT YOU NEED Apple Crisp Filling Honeycrisp Apples fresh lemon juice vanilla extract light brown sugar cornstarch cinnamon ginger nutmeg cloves Apple Crisp Topping old fashioned rolled oats almond flour light brown sugar kosher salt cinnamon unsalted butter
1. Add all of the apple crisp filling ingredients to a large bowl and toss to coat the apples. 2. Pour the apples into an 11″ cast iron skillet (or any baking pan that will hold the apples, as long as the apples cover enough surface area to where you cannot see the bottom of the pan). 3. Bake the apples for 10 minutes.
4. While those bake, make the topping. Whisk together all of the ingredients, minus the butter, in a large bowl. 5. Toss in the cubes of butter and use your fingers to work and mash the butter into the dry ingredients. This will take some time, so keep working until the butter is no longer visible and the crisp mixture will hold together when squeezed in your hand.
6. When the 10 minutes are up, pull the apples out of the oven and top with the crisp mixture. Spread it the crisp even to fully cover the apples. 7. Return the crisp to the oven and bake for 35-40 minutes or until the edges are bubbling and the crisp is golden brown. If the top is browning too quickly, cover with a loose sheet of foil and continue baking. 8. Allow the crisp to cool for about 15 minutes, then dig in!
