Pat's Apple Crisp
Here is the ultimate apple crisp recipe, guaranteed to get you compliments every time you make this. Your kitchen will smell wonderful as it bakes. As a variation, you can add nuts or raisins to the topping. This recipe comes from my friend Pat Petredis, an award-winning cook, of Fox Island, Washington.
4 cups apples, peeled and sliced
1 tsp cinnamon
¼ cup water
¾ cup flour
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup butter, unsalted and chilled
Mix apples, cinnamon and water. In a separate bowl, mix flour, sugar and butter with a pastry blender until it resembles peas. Place apples in a buttered 10” baking dish. Top with flour mixture. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 min. until golden brown. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream or sweetened whipped cream.
