I love apples. They are just so juicy and sweet and good for you! I was recently sent a box of Pazazz apples to try in the hopes that I would share them on the blog. They were in fact delicious so I decided to whip up an apple crisp recipe with fresh apples to share with y’all. What is really unique about these all-new Pazazz apples is that unlike other apples, they are grown to peak in flavor during the colder winter months so you can get fresh apples longer. And taste wise- it is a descendent of the Honeycrisp and really sweet, crisp, and flavorful. This apple crisp recipe with fresh apples is so easy to make and so good!
This Easy Apple Crisp Recipe With Fresh Apples Is Scrumptious!
So first you will want to gather up your ingredients. I skipped this step and found out part way through that I was actually out of brown sugar and had to run to the store. The only problem with husbands that cook is they sometimes use things up and don’t tell you, well, that and the mess! So anyway, gather up your ingredients.
15 minutes prep (mostly slicing the apples)
35 minutes cooking
Apple Crisp Recipe With Fresh Apples Ingredients:
- 6 large fresh apples or about 2 pounds of apples (doesn’t need to be exact)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
- 1 tbsp white sugar
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 1 cup old fashioned rolled oats
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1.5 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 cup salted butter
Apple Crisp Recipe With Fresh Apples Directions:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease a 9 by 13 inch pyrex baking dish or similar size.
Cut apples in half and remove cores. Then slice halves into about 4 sections each so when you slice these sections up you will have bite sized pieces. Make sure your final apple slices are pretty thin so they will cook quickly and come out soft.
Sprinkle lemon juice, white sugar, and vanilla over the apples and toss. Lemon juice adds a layer of flavor and helps to keep the apples from turning brown while they wait. I also sprinkled a tad bit of cinnamon onto the apples here because my daughter just loves cinnamon and wanted it to be extra cinnamony. Pour apples into baking dish.
Combine oats, flour, brown sugar, and cinnamon with small cubed bits of butter or throw all five into a food processor for about 1 minute until the butter looks like crumbles. I do it in the food processor because I love the even texture and I like the oats broken up a bit. Either way works just fine though.
Pour this flour crisp mixture onto of the apples and smooth with a spoon to create an even top. I sprinkle a few extra whole oats on top for looks but that is optional.
Pop your apple dish into the oven for about 35 minutes and it should come out all perfectly crispy and slightly browned. As the apples cooked they will have released apple juices that will have made a lovely light sauce. The Pazazz apples come out slightly pink and pretty! Serve warm with vanilla ice cream or whip cream, if you like.
This apple crisp recipe with fresh apples is just divine and sure to become a household favorite.
