We do change it up some of course!

Ingredients:

10 tart apples – Macintosh are great
3/4 C sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp Nutmeg
1/2 Lemon or 2 Tbsp Lemon Juice
3/4 C Water

Topping
3/4 C sugar
3/4 C Flour
1/2 C Butter

Directions:

Slice apples into 11×9 baking dish. Sprinkle with sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Add water and lemon juice. Top with topping and bake 400 degrees for 1 hour.
What she didn’t tell you in the recipe though was the two secrets to making the best Apple Crisp. I am going to share that with you now.

The First SECRET – double the topping. After all that is the best part!
The Second SECRET – use cold butter for the topping – its supposed to be crumbly not smooth like batter.
