Is there someone at your company that makes a signature dish, one that employees request for potlucks or meetings? At Gardener’s Supply, Vicky Broe’s apple crisp is one of those dishes.
Vicky’s Apple Crisp
Each year, I make this dish for our new-employee orientation to delight my co-workers. You can use almost any variety of apple, but I like McIntosh, Cortland, Paula Red or Granny Smith.
- 10 to 12 apples, peeled and sliced
- 1 cup white sugar
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1 cup water
- 1 1/2 sticks of butter (12 tablespoons), softened
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 2 cups flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a 9×13″ pan, arrange apple slices.
In a medium bowl, combine white sugar, cinnamon and water. Pour over the apples in the pan.
In a large bowl, combine butter, brown sugar, flour, baking powder and salt. Use a pastry blender or a fork to combine the ingredients into a chunky mixture. Sprinkle over the ingredients in the pan.
Bake for about 45 minutes, until apples are tender when pricked with a fork.
