Honeycrisp Apple Crisp.

 

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.

And crumbled a bit of brown sugar on top.

 It’s brown – so it’s healthy.

 

 

Not really.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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

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

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

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

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

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!

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

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

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.
