Apple Crisp


When I started the CCChallenge, I thought I would blog about all the recipes from the multitudes of paper cuttings and books I picked up over the years but never looked at. But I seem to be buying new books now and the pile is simply increasing and the backlog becoming worse! 

This recipe is from the latest book that I bought – My Kitchen Years by Ruth Reichl. It a beautifully written book and talks a lot about the comfort and bliss cooking a meal brings to the cook. 


So here goes –


Apples, medium size           6

Lemon                                     1/2

All purpose flour                  1 cup

Brown sugar                          1 cup

Cinnamon powder               1 tsp

Salt                                           a pinch

Unsalted butter                    4 1/2 tbsp


  • Preheat the oven at 190C
  • Peel the apples, core them and slice them thinly
  • Add the lemon juice to the apples and toss well
  • Mix the flour, sugar, cinnamon powder and salt in a bowl
  • Cut in the butter into the flour mixture and mix well
  • Arrange the apples in a baking dish and pat the flour mix on top of it
  • Bake for 45-55 minutes till the top is crisp and the Apple juice bubbling
  • Enjoy!
