Apple Crisp

serves 6-8

The Golden Delicious contributes sweetness, so there's no need for sugar in the filling. The Winesap is tart; hence, no lemon juice. The Jonathan is both sweet and tart, for added depth of flavor. Taken together, this crisp is slightly tart.

6 apples (2 Golden Delicious, 2 Winesap and 2 Jonathan), peeled, cored and sliced into eighths
1 stick (4 ounces) unsalted butter, softened
1 cup flour
1 cup brown sugar
2 to 4 tablespoons apple cider or hard cider (optional)


prep: 15 minutes
total: 1 hour 15 minutes


8- or 9-inch-square baking pan
medium bowl


1. Preheat the oven to 325F. Have ready an ungreased baking pan.

2. Mix the apples together in a medium bowl and transfer them to the pan.

3. In a medium bowl, using a whisk, combine the butter, flour and sugar until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Sprinkle it over the apples.

4. Bake for 50 to 60 minutes or until golden brown and bubbly. Halfway through the cooking, if the apples look a little dry, add 2 to 4 tablespoons of cider. Let cool slightly before serving, or serve cold.
