Apple Crisp

We’re big apple crisp fans – because pies scare me (as does anything with dough). I got this recipe from a cookbook that Rose gave us for our anniversary. After a couple of adjustments to the original, I think our version is ready to go public.

8 Granny Smith apple, cored, chopped and peeled
1 tsp salt
1 T cinnamon
3/4 c water

Topping
1 c (138 g) flour
3/4 c (158 g) sugar
1 T cinnamon
1/3 c (73 g) butter, room temperature

Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C). Place apple pieces in 9×13 pan. Sprinkle salt, cinnamon and water over the apples. Cut together all ingredients for topping until crumbly. Sprinkle topping evenly over apples. Bake for 1 hour.
