Making my way through the pile

And now, the obligatory apple crisp recipe.  I mean, come on – if you go apple picking and pick enough apples to fill up your car, you’ve got to go through the usuals.

So to make it interesting, you have to add a little something special.  Like crystallized ginger.  Mainly because I happened to have some in the pantry 🙂

Love it.  And SO easy.

I’m guessing apple turnovers will be next.  Stay tuned.

Apple Crisp with Crystallized Ginger Topping
from Heavy Table

5 cups peeled, cored and diced apples (I used Macoun)
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon flour

For the topping:
3/4 cup flour
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoons crystallized ginger, finely chopped
1/4 teaspoon salt (do not use if using salted butter)
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
4 tablespoons butter, cut into small pieces

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Pile apples into an 8×8 baking pan.  Top with crisp topping (see directions below) and bake for approximately 40 minutes, or until topping is golden brown and fruit is bubbling.

To make topping:
Mix all ingredients except butter in a bowl.  Add butter and work in with fingers until mixture is crumbly.  Chill until ready to use.  Can be made ahead and refrigerated for a week, or frozen for 2 months.

Serves 6.

    I have a standard apple crisp recipe that I think Mr. Rosemary would slash me with apple peels if I abandoned. But the crystallized ginger is veerry tempting!
