Whole Wheat Brown Sugar Apple Crisp
It’s apple season here at our household, and our apple tree is bursting with fruit. While planning to take a meal to a family at church who just had a baby, I decided to make an apple pie. But, when I inventoried my aluminum pans, I discovered that I’m out of pie plates. Since I try not to take anything that needs to be returned to me (so that the family doesn’t have to keep up with dishes from so many church members bringing food) I decided instead to use a square cake pan and make an apple crisp. This was so good, very simple, and so easy to make.
4 cups of apples, peeled and sliced
1 tsp cinnamon
½ tsp Kosher salt
¼ cup water
¾ cup whole wheat flour (I used fresh ground, soft white wheat)
¾ cup brown sugar
⅓ cup butter, softened
FOR THE CREAM:
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1 TBS powdered sugar
¼ tsp cinnamon
Sharp knife and cutting board
9x9x2 square pan (or 9-inch pie plate)
Mixing bowl and mixer for the whipped cream
Preheat oven to 350° degrees F (120° degrees C).
Place bowl and beaters for the whipped cream in the refrigerator.
Peel and slice apples. I use an apple peeler and a slicing contraption.
Place 4 cups of sliced apples in the pan.
Sprinkle with cinnamon, salt, and add water.
In a bowl, mix the flour, brown sugar, and butter.
Top the apples with the dough.
Bake at 350° degrees F for 40 minutes.
Serve warm topped with Cinnamon Whipped Cream:
In the chilled bowl, beat the whipping cream, powdered sugar, and cinnamon until the cream is stiff.
