This recipe below is for a delicious, comforting Apple Crisp - but before we get started, let’s talk about the best kind of apples to use. Our top recommendations are:
If you have a few different varieties on hand, then of course feel free to mix them!
As you are baking the apples, you will want to choose those that are crisp and tart as they fare best when baked.
Always peel and chop your apples before baking them in this dessert and try to ensure that all the pieces of apple are the same size. This will help them cook evenly. The best way to do this is to cut each apple into quarters, then each quarter into four pieces.
If your apples seem a little overripe and mushy, don't worry! While they may not be great for eating raw, they'll be just perfect for this Apple Crisp!
