Apple Crisp

You’ll need a helper to peel and cut the apples, but you get to do the rest of the recipe! Your kitchen will smell so amazing!
bowls, wooden spoon, measuring cups, measuring spoons, dinner knife, knife (for helper), 8-inch (20 cm) square microwave-safe glass or ceramic baking dish, baking spatula
½ cup (125 mL) soft unsalted butter (see “Butter”)
½ cup (125 mL) firmly packed brown sugar
1 Tbsp (15 mL) white sugar
pinch of salt
1 cup (250 mL) rolled oats, traditional or quick-cooking (but not instant)
2/3 cup (160 mL) all-purpose flour (spoon in, level)
Apple Layer
3 baking apples
1 Tbsp (15 mL) unsalted butter
2 Tbsp (30 mL) white sugar
¼ tsp (1 mL) ground cinnamon
  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. In a large bowl, use the back of a wooden spoon to cream together the ½ cup (125 mL) butter, brown sugar, 1 Tbsp (15 mL) white sugar, and salt.
  3. Add the rolled oats and flour to the butter mixture and stir until the mixture is crumbly and no dry flour can be seen. Use a dinner knife to scrape sticky ingredients from the wooden spoon. Don’t be afraid to use your hands to mix the ingredients together more quickly. Set aside.
  4. Ask a helper to peel and cut the apples into 1-inch (2.5 cm) chunks.
  5. Meanwhile, put the 1 Tbsp (15 mL) butter into the baking dish and heat in the microwave at 50% power until melted (about 30 seconds). Tilt the baking dish to roll the melted butter around the bottom, or use a baking spatula to spread the melted butter.
  6. Spread the apple chunks in the baking dish.
  7. In a small bowl, mix the 2 Tbsp (30 mL) white sugar and the cinnamon. Sprinkle over the apple.
  8. Sprinkle the rolled oats mixture evenly on the apples. Don’t worry if there are some lumps.
  9. Bake on the middle rack of the oven for 30 to 35 minutes, or until the rolled oats are golden.
Serves 6.
