My mom's famous and best apple crisp recipe! Easy and delicious.
  • 6 Granny Smith apples
  • 1 cup (200 g) sugar
  • ¾ cup (90g) flour
  • ⅓ cup (80g) butter, at room temperature
  • ¼ cup (60ml) water
  • 1 teaspoon (5g) ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon (2.5g) fine salt
  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (180°C)
  2. Peel the apples and cut them into medium chunks. You should get about 10 chunks per apple -- it's okay if they aren't uniform. Make sure they aren't too small or you'll get applesauce instead of apple crisp! And if they're too large they'll be dry.
  3. Place the apple chunks in a baking dish (8 inches). Drizzle the water over the apples, evenly.
  4. Evenly sprinkle with the cinnamon and salt.
  5. In a small bowl, mix together the flour and sugar.
  6. Add the room temperature butter and mash with the back of a fork. You want to make a chunky paste with plenty of crumbs too.
  7. Cover the apples with this mixture.
  8. Bake for about 40 minutes until the top is golden brown and the apples are bubbling.
  9. Serve with real vanilla ice cream (get the good stuff!) and a glass of Pedro Ximenez
