This apple crisp recipe is great for potlucks or family gatherings! It fills up a 9x13 pan.
Mom's Apple Crisp
8 peeled, sliced apples
1 1/2 cups of sugar (I use sucanat)
6 TBS flour
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 cups of boiling water.
Put apples in greased 9x13 baking dish. Mix above ingredients and sprinkle over apples. Pour boiling water over apples.
For Topping Mix, combine...
1 1/2 cups quick cooking oats
1 1/2 cups of flour
1 1/2 cups of packed brown sugar (or sucanat)
1 cup butter, melted
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
(my mom likes to add a cup of sliced almonds to the topping mix)
Place Topping Mix on top of apples. Bake at 350 degrees 40-50 minutes or until crispy on top.
I also like to exchange about half of the flour to whole wheat pastry flour. It doesn't change the texture, but it gives you more whole grains.
