Apple Crisp that Rocks Face!!!!

We had a bunch of Granny Smith apples that looked like they were going bad soon, and since i hate hate hate Granny Smith apples raw...I decided to work on perfecting my apple crisp!  Now I have made this recipe and played with it different ways to try and make it so delish that I crave it, but I have yet to master the art...


Usually Becky ends up eating all of the dish over the course of a week (because I only have the first serving and then dont like it)YALL!!!! It was amaze and I insist you make it and make it and make it....Here is what you will need

5 Granny Smith Apples
3/4 Cup of flour
1 Cup of Sugar
1/2 Butter
2 Tbs of Cinnamon
Pinch of salt
1/4 Cup of Water

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees while you work!!!  Slice and peel the apples.  I cut the slices in half. (your goal is about 4 cups of apple slices)  I use an apple corer because I'm bad ass like that :)  Then you put all the apple pieces in your casserole dish and add 1/4 cup of water.  After the water has been added sprinkle a pinch of salt all on the top of the apples...I don't know why just do it.  Now...I LOVE Cinnamon so I probably go overboard but I don't care.  Sprinkle a pretty layer of the cinnamon on top of the apples and then use a spoon and mix all that yummy goodness around.  It should look like this!!!

Then in a separate bowl add your flour, sugar, and MELTED butter (i heat the butter for 25 seconds in the microwave)...butter melted is the trick here.  You can use your fingers to mix all the ingredos, but I use a swift little hand mixer just so it looks kinda chunky/gritty.  Here is another sweet this point add another fun layer of cinnamon and use a pastry spatula or spoon and mix it in there until blended.  It should look like this!!!!

Then take the flour mixture and add it to the top of the apples.  Something I tried yesterday for the first time was adding some chopped nuts to the top to the "topping",  I just randomly had some in my cupboard so I thought what the heck...might as well!!!
