Sinclair Traditions: Apple Crisp Recipe

I’m not crazy about the month of November. There isn’t a trace left of the glorious fall colors at this point. In fact, the lack of reds, oranges, and yellows are a reminder of the doom and gloom of the long North Country winter that’s approaching and that’s nothing to look forward to.


One of the amazing things about November is that it’s a month full of tasty warm foods that welcome you into the house on those chilly days. A family favorite that we’ve grown up with and is probably one of the simplest desserts you could ever make (seriously — it comes from a cook book for children) is our Apple Crisp recipe. Try it. It’s easy and quick and oh-so-tasty. You’ll love it forever and for always just like we do. This traditional Sinclair dessert rather redeems the early to darken nights and chilly wind that starts to blow.

And now for the “How To” to make this scrumptious goodness:

Step One
spread 6 cups sliced and pared apples in 9″x13″ pan
(Not sure what all these fancy baking words mean? It’s okay — I don’t either. It’s just an uppity way of saying to peel and cut the apples.)

Step Two
sprinkle apples with the following:
3/8 cup (small half cup) water
1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt

Step Three
with pastry blender, mix the following ingredients until crumbly:
1 1/2 cup sugar
1 1/8 cup flour
1/2 cup butter

Step Four
spread crumb mixture over apples

Step Five
bake, uncovered for about 40 minutes (until sides are bubbly and crumb mixture is a bit golden)

Step Six
consume warm apple crisp all by it’s goodness self
consume with whip cream
consume with vanilla ice cream
or a personal favorite
consume for breakfast the next morning

apple crisp

Try it.
