My friend Sherry used to make this apple crisp at the Grant House Café. She never measured, so I've measured and tried to get it as close to hers as I could. This is easy and tastes great served with vanilla ice cream.
- 8 to 10 large apples peeled, cored, and sliced
- 1/3 cup instant tapioca
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 cup sugar, or less if the apples are sweet
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
Mix all ingredients together and pour into a greased 9" by 13" baking dish.
- 1 cup butter chilled and cut into ½ inch cubes
- 1 ½ cups flour
- 1 ½ cups brown sugar
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon nutmeg
Place all ingredients in a large bowl and cut butter into mixture with a pastry cutter or a fork. Mix until crumbly. Sprinkle mixture over apples.
Bake at 350º for 1 to 1 ½ hours, until bubbly and browned.
Serves 8 to 10.
