I got my system going here! Chop apples, core them, peels & cores into one bowl, apple chunks into another bowl.
I made this topping up as I went along. I kept adding more & more of whatever until I reached the consistency and taste of what I was looking for. I softened the butter alot before blending it in. I've heard people say that colder butter chunks will result in a crunchier topping - mine was plenty crunchy and my butter was borderline melted. Much easier to incorporate I figure.
The juice on the side was bubbling away when I removed it from the oven! Then it slowly thickened as it cooled to become a nice sweet & spicy syrupy sort of sauce.
I could not even wait until the crisp was somewhat cool before I broke into it. Besides, I had to take photos so I needed to scoop some out for the photo shoot! It was pretty darn hot when I ate it. Gosh, it was sure tasty.
The first & second bowls I scooped up were not perfect enough for the photo shoot so I had to serve myself THREE bowls before I got the perfect shot!
I ate 3 bowls of apple crisp at 10:30 PM!
