We had about 7 honeycrisps in our fridge and I knew they had to go to good use. I am really trying to not be wasteful with food – we always have so much since my husband is a human garbage disposal, albeit a healthy one.

 

 

I had just been eating the honeycrisps (who woulda thunk?), but the recent attack on my mouth, aka loads of dental work (and the raping on my bank account), have made chomping on a crisp apple not such a pleasant task.

 

Especially after I chipped my first filling on this.

 

 

I wanted to make a slightly healthier version, and also not make an entire baking dish full of apple crisp. Because we all know where that would end up.

 

 

This apple crisp is so simple and took less than 10 minutes to prepare! It’s more of a cobbler than a crisp, and it is prepared so easily that you just need a fork, not a mixer. So it’s kind of a fake apple crisp. Oh well. It can serve up to 4 in small portions. Or 2 in medium-sized portions.

 

Or 1 in my portions. It’s the truth.

 

 

 

I chopped up 2 honeycrisps.

Sprinkled them with cinnamon, salt, and a touch of nutmeg.

IMG_1519

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And crumbled a bit of brown sugar on top.

IMG_1520

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 It’s brown – so it’s healthy.

 

 

Not really.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I let them sit for a couple minutes and they began to sweat.

IMG_1526

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For the ‘crisp,’ I combined whole wheat flour, sugar, and more cinnamon.

IMG_1521

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Chopped up some butter into tiny pieces – make sure it’s cold!

IMG_1522

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And mash it all together with a fork, until the butter crumbles.

IMG_1523

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I added some vanilla almond milk and a splash of vanilla.

IMG_1524

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I can never have too much vanilla. Though I do not like vanilla ice cream. Well, most commerical vanilla ice creams. Homemade vanilla bean ice cream? I’m in.

 

 

 

 

 

 

And here is our dough!

IMG_1525

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Layer it on the apples and add a touch of butter on top.

IMG_1527

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Check out the ooey, gooey, apple-y, deliciousness.

IMG_1533

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Serves 4. Or 2. IMG_1534

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Or one. That’s me.

 

 

 

Honeycrisp Apple Crisp

2 honeycrisp apples

1 tablespoon brown sugar

1 tablespoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg

1 cup whole wheat flour

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup vanilla almond milk (or liquid of your choice)

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 tablespoons cold butter

 

Preheat oven to 375.

Chop apples and combine with 1/2 tablespoon cinnamon, salt, nutmeg and brown sugar in a small baking dish.

In a separate bowl, stir flour, sugar and remaining cinnamon. Chop 1 tablespoon of butter and add it to flour. Mash with a fork until thoroughly combined and small bits of butter remain. Add vanilla and milk gradually, stiring as you go. You don’t want the mix to be watery or too thick. It should be somewhat sticky.

Spread dough on top of apples, and place in over. Bake at 375 for about 30 minutes, or until apples look juicy and topping is golden brown.

 

 

 

Honeycrisps? Why can’t you hang out all year long? I’m not ready for you to leave.

    I have also had a lot of luck adding applesauce to the crusty topping so that I am able to omit some of the butter…it’s yum and it adds to the applely deliciousness if it all.

    Wow, I want to make pretty much every recipe here! I haven’t made apple crisp in SO LONG. Also, I always forget what a difference roasting garlic makes, but it’s so good! I could eat the cloves whole… although I don’t think my boy would be so happy about that.!

    Wow this looks so good! I make something similar except no “crisp” part–I call it easy homemade applesauce. Just apples, a little butter, brown sugar and cinnamon heated in the microwave for maybe 2-3 minutes. The apples get soft and the butter and sugar melt together for a delicious caramel topping–tastes just like homemade applesauce on the stove! I will definitely be trying to make this crisp for sure!
