Country Apple Crisp

Country Apple Crisp

This weekend we are having an old-fashion neighborhood picnic.  Everyone is to bring a dish to pass.  We thought we would bring a Country Apple Crisp.  This is easy to make, can be made in advance and is always a huge hit; in other words the perfect dessert.  We have made this crisp for many occasions and always get requests for the recipe.

So if you are looking for that perfect dessert to take to the next group dinner or the perfect ending  to that family picnic give this apple crisp a try.

3 cup flour
3 cup sugar, granulated
3 lb apples, peeled and sliced
1 Tb cinnamon. ground
0.5 cup walnuts, chopped
3 Tb raisins, golden
2 cup apple juice
8 Tb butter, salted

Spray bottom of 10 X 14 baking pan with PAM; mix 1/2 of the flour and 1/3 of the sugar together.
Sprinkle enough in pan to cover bottom about 1/2 “ thick. Peel apples and cut into slices, arrange evenly around pan.
Add nuts and raisins, sprinkle on cinnamon.
Mix remaining flour and 3/4 of the remaining sugar together, cover top with remaining flour/sugar mixture, add apple juice. Sprinkle top with remaining sugar. Cut butter into small pieces and dot top of crisp. Bake @ 350 degrees for about 1 hour or until the top is golden brown and crunchy.

This feeds a small army and is great for picnics.
