Autumn Apple Crisp

Last week we went out to the East Coast for vacation. We hiked Acadia National Park, saw the fall colors in Maine at their peak, and walked the Freedom Trail in Boston. It was gorgeous out there and definitely put me in the fall mood!

When we got back to Minnesota, it was a chilly 40-something degrees and the colors have started to change. We swapped out the dying summer flowers on our front step with pumpkins and yellow mums, and while the guys watched the Vikings game today, I decided it was time for some apple crisp. I could not be any cozier right now as the cinnamon-apple smell fills the house and the afternoon sun shines in our house.

Autumn Apple Crisp

Serves: Approximately 12 // Time: Approximately 1 hour and 25 minutes

About 8-10 small/medium apples
¼ cup lemon juice
¼ cup granulated sugar
¼ cup brown sugar
1 Tbsp vanilla extract
1 Tbsp cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg

1½ cups flour
¾ cup granulated sugar
¾ cup light brown sugar
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup cold butter, diced
1/4 cup butter, melted

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease a 13 x 9 inch glass pan. Cut the apples in quarters, core them, and slice them thinly. Add the lemon juice, ¼ cup sugar, ¼ cup brown sugar, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg.

To make the crisp topping, add the flour, ¾ cup sugar, ¾ cup brown sugar, salt, oats and cold butter to a stand mixer and begin combining on low. As the mixture is combining, drizzle in the melted butter. Mixture should be crumbly, but it is okay to have small clumps of butter. Add the apples to the pan, then pour and spread the crisp topping over the apples. Bake for 60-65 minutes or until golden brown.
