Recipe of the Month: Haralson Apple Crisp

Posted on September 30, 2013 by

Featured as our September 2013 Recipe of the Month, apples from Jordan’s orchards take center stage. Kevin’s favorite apple is Haralson, which is a perfect fit for this apple crisp. Haralson’s have a mildly tart flavor, and hold their shape and texture in baking. Top this off with a cinnamon ice cream. Yum!

  • 7 tart apples, peeled, cored and sliced
  • 4 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup butter, room temperature

Preheat oven to 375°F. In a mixing bowl, combine apples, lemon juice, and vanilla. Toss to combine.

Layer sliced apples in a 9 x 12-inch (or approximately the same size) baking pan.

Combine brown sugar, cinnamon, and oatmeal in a bowl. Cut in the butter. Sprinkle sugar mixture over apples.

Bake 45 minutes or until topping looks crunchy and apples are tender.

Serve topped with whipped cream or ice cream.

Serves 8.
