I think my favorite dessert of all time is apple crisp. There is just something so amazing about sugared apples with lots of spices, then topped with a buttery crumb topping. Oats, flour, butter and brown sugar blend perfectly into this amazing crispy topping that becomes like a crumble. I have never seen something turn out so deliciously in my life! I have seen this served at Longhorn’s, Chili’s, The Cheesecake Factory and so many other places. However, I must admit, there is truly nothing like the type made at home.
When you eat it out on the street, sure it is tasty, but you cannot double the crisp topping (not saying that I do…well maybe…), or get yourself another scoop of ice cream to go with it. And, the crumb toppings are always different and not always that crispy. My favorite topping has oats in it, so when I make it at home, I make sure to include that. I have altered the crumb topping so many times to perfect it, and I have found that my favorite combination is equal parts brown sugar, oats and then half of that amount in butter and flour. It is the perfect combination to get that beautiful crispy coating over your apples!
