Minnesota Apple Crisp - Apple Crisp Recipe Without Oats
Minnesota Apple Crisp is a hundred year old apple crisp recipe without oats. With only five ingredients, the most basic cook can handle this recipe. This recipe has been a favorite for generations and will continue to be in your family.
Servings: 8 servings
- 5 - 6 cups apples
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1/2 cup butter
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup flour
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 2 quart or 9 x 9 inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
Peel washed apples. Slice into thick pieces.
Combine prepared apple and white sugar; pour into prepared dish.
Cut cold butter into flour and brown sugar to form streusel topping. Pour topping mixture over sweetened apples.
Bake in preheated oven for 30 - 40 minutes or until the apples are fork tender and topping is golden brown.
Serve warm as is, or top with vanilla ice cream.
- Use whatever type of apples you have on hand. Originally, it called for Minnesota apples, but any variety will work.
- Peel apples first. Cut into thick slices. If you cut too thin, the apples will disintegrate during baking changing the texture.
- Be sure to start with cold butter.
- A pastry blender works best to cut cold butter into the streusel topping; however, two forks, two knives or clean hands work too.
- You can bake this in pretty much any baking dish you have on hand as long as the apples fit. The original recipe used a pin tin. I prefer to use a 2 quart Pyrex baking dish.
