Prep Time 30minutes
Cook Time 1hour
Total Time 1hour30minutes
6cupsGranny Smith apples (green apples), peeled, cored, and cut into 1/4" slices (about 9-10 green apples)
1 1/2tablespoonsall-purpose flour
For the Topping
1 1/2cupsold-fashioned oats
1 1/2cupsall-purpose flour
1 1/2cupsbrown sugar
Preheat the oven to 350°F.
In a large mixing bowl, toss the sliced apples with the sugar, 1 1/2 tablespoon flour, salt cinnamon, and nutmeg, and set aside for the sugar to soften the apples and macerate, creating a light syrup. In a smaller mixing bowl, toss the oats, 1 1/2 cups flour, brown sugar, and baking powder together, then use your fingers to mix in the melted butter, gently making small clumps where you can.
Layer the sugared apples and their juice in a 9 X 13 baking dish and sprinkle evenly with the oatmeal mixture, but don't pack it tightly. Bake uncovered for 50-60 minutes until the apples are soft and tender and the sauce has thickened and is bubbly. If the crisp seems to be browning too much, cover with foil for the remaining cooking time.
Let the apple crisp cool for 20-30 minutes before serving for the caramel sauce to thicken. Divide in bowls and top with vanilla ice cream or whip cream, and serve.
