I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! I personally love cooking and hosting for Thanksgiving but if I am not hosting or cooking, I always ask to bring my Apple Crisp or make the Turkey. Most people like Apple Crisp and it’s a pretty traditional dessert for the holidays, but it can be pretty unmemorable if you don’t spice it up! Next time you make Apple Crisp, substitute a fourth of the white sugar with Vermont Maple Syrup and use all different apples instead of just one kind. The different apples will have slightly different textures and flavor, which makes a relatively basic dish a bit more memorable.
- 10 Cups Sliced Apples (Select all different types) Peeled
- ¾ Cup White Sugar
- ¼ Cup Maple Syrup
- 1 Tsp Ground Cinnamon
- ¼ Cup Water
- 1 Tbsp All-Purpose Flour
- 1 Cup Old Fashion Cooking Oats (Quick Oats or Half and Half will work as well)
- 1 Cup All-Purpose Flour
- 1 Cup Brown Sugar Packed
- ¼ Tsp Baking Powder
- ¼ Tsp Baking Soda
- ½ Cup Melted Butter Salted
- ⅛ Tsp Ground Cinnamon
- Preheat oven to 350°F degrees.
- In a large bowl, mix all the filling ingredients together: sliced apples, white sugar, flour, cinnamon, maple syrup and water. Once mixed well and sugar is slightly dissolved, pour into a 9×13 inch pan. NOTE: You can use a slightly smaller or larger pan. However, if you use a smaller pan it will be thicker and you may need to cook for an additional 5-10 minutes.
- Combine crisp ingredients in a bowl and mix using a large fork. Combine until crumble starts to form into small balls.
- Place in oven on the middle rack, bake at 350°F for 50 minutes
