  • How can you tell if an apple is good?

    There are four things you can do when you are in the store to see if the apples you are buying is good and fresh. The first thing is the most obvious one and is to look for any visible bruises, wormholes, cuts, and brown spots. Second, make sure the color of the apple is right, i.e. if you are buying a red delicious apple make sure it is that characteristic deep red, or if you are buying a granny smith apple that it is that perfect green. Third, give the apple a quick sniff to make sure it is not rancid or has any foul odors. Lastly, gently check the apple firmness to make sure it has no squishy spots.
  • Can you reheat apple crisp?

    Warm apple crisp is the best! To reheat apple crisp put some on a plate and pop it in the microwave and warm it up in 30-second increments until it is warmed up to your liking. BUT! please be careful as the sauce can get hot and cause burns if you heat it up too much.
  • What are the best apples to use in baking?

    There are hundreds of varieties of apples so it can be hard to know which to purchase. There are a number of commonly sold apples that are great for baking. Green apples like Granny Smith provide a nice tart flavor and are great for baking. Other yellow and red varieties that are good for baking include Golden Delicious, Honey Crisp, Braeburn, Jonathan, Fuji, and Pink Lady. Check the apple for freshness, it should be nice and hard. If the apple is squishy, is bruised, or discolored, you will want to discard them.

I just made this tonight but i tripled the crust, used 2/3 of coconut oil instead of butter and low broil it for like 3 minutes. It was amazing! I would definitely make this again! Thank you for this recipe!

I’m not a fan of oatmeal. Can I just use a regular Dutch apple topping like we use for pies?
