Apple Crisp

APPLE CRISP

3 1/2 lbs Granny Smith apples, stemmed, peeled, cored, sliced 1/2” thick

1 C firmly packed golden brown sugar
1 T ground cinnamon
Pinch of freshly ground nutmeg
Split 2 vanilla bean seeds or small dash of pure vanilla extract
1 T lemon juice

1 C all purpose flour
1 C sugar
1 C (2 sticks) chilled unsalted butter, cut into small pieces

Preheat oven to 450° F

Butter 13″ x 9” glass baking dish. Combine brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla in large bowl. Add apples and lemon juice and toss to coat. Transfer apple mixture to prepared baking dish.

Combine flour, 1 cup sugar and butter in medium bowl. Using pastry blender or fingertips, blend ingredients until coarse meal forms — until soft, tender and workable. Spread flour mixture evenly over apples.

Bake crisp 20 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350° F. Bake crisp until apples are tender and topping is golden brown, about 30 minutes. Let stand at least 15 minutes before serving.
