Classic Apple Crisp 

Recipe from The Barefoot Contessa 
Makes enough for 10 servings

Ingredients

  • 5 pounds McIntosh apples
  • Grated zest of 1 orange
  • Grated zest of 1 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

For the Topping

  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup oatmeal
  • 1/2 pound cold unsalted butter, diced

Method

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Butter an oval or circular baking dish.

Peel, core, and cut the apples into medium sized wedges. Combine the apples with the zests, juices, sugar, and spices. Pour into the dish.

To make the topping, combine the flour, sugars, salt, oatmeal, and cold butter in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix on low speed until the mixture is crumbly and the butter is the size of peas. Scatter evenly over the apples.

Place the crisp on a sheet pan and bake for 1 hour until the top is brown and the apples are bubbly.  Serve warm topped with whipped cream.
