Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel And Spa Easy Apple Crisp Recipe From Napa Rose

I saw this on the Disney blog and wanted to share it with you. Nothing makes it feel more like fall than the enticing smell of apple crisp, this is a great recipe to share.

Apple Crisp
Serves 6

Apple Filling
1 1/2 pounds crisp apples, such as Fuji or Braeburn
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons Calvados (apple brandy)
2 teaspoons cornstarch

Crumble Topping
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup oats
1/4 cup chopped pecans
1/4 cup shredded coconut
3 tablespoons unsalted butter

For apple filling:

  1. Peel apples and cut into 1/4-inch dice. Set aside.
  2. Melt butter in a large sauté pan over medium heat; add sugar, and stir about 2 minutes or until sugar melts.
  3. Add diced apples, and cook about 3 minutes or until apples just begin to soften. Combine lemon juice, Calvados, and cornstarch in a small bowl; stir until cornstarch is dissolved.
  4. Add lemon juice mixture to the pan, and cook about 4 minutes, stirring, until juices thicken. Serve warm.

For crumble topping:

  1. Preheat oven to 350˚F.
  2. Combine flour, sugar, brown sugar, oats, pecans, and coconut in a large bowl; stir until well combined. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt butter. Slowly add melted butter to the bowl, stirring to incorporate.
  3. Pour mixture onto an un-greased cookie sheet, breaking up large clumps with your fingers. Bake 10 to 14 minutes, or until golden brown. Set aside to cool slightly; break up any remaining big pieces to achieve a crumbly consistency.
