Featured as our September 2013 Recipe of the Month, apples from Jordan’s orchards take center stage. Kevin’s favorite apple is Haralson, which is a perfect fit for this apple crisp. Haralson’s have a mildly tart flavor, and hold their shape and texture in baking. Top this off with a cinnamon ice cream. Yum!
[li]7 tart apples, peeled, cored and sliced[/li]
[li]4 teaspoons fresh lemon juice[/li]
[li]1/2 teaspoon vanilla[/li]
[li]1 cup brown sugar[/li]
[li]1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon[/li]
[li]1 cup rolled oats[/li]
[li]1/2 cup butter, room temperature[/li]
Preheat oven to 375°F. In a mixing bowl, combine apples, lemon juice, and vanilla. Toss to combine.
Layer sliced apples in a 9 x 12-inch (or approximately the same size) baking pan.
Combine brown sugar, cinnamon, and oatmeal in a bowl. Cut in the butter. Sprinkle sugar mixture over apples.
Bake 45 minutes or until topping looks crunchy and apples are tender.
Serve topped with whipped cream or ice cream.
