Apple & Peach Crisp with Pecans

October 18, 2011 § 2 Comments

Apples are very popular in my house. My kids like taking apples to school because they don’t get squished in their bags and ruin their homework. My daughter loves tart green apples which she eats in a tradition Indian style, cut into slices and sprinkled with salt and chilli powder, while my son and I prefer sweet crisp apples. With over 7500 varieties available in the world, there’s an apple for everyone’s palate.

Apple crisp is an easy way to satisfy your sweet tooth and use the apples that are in season. I was lucky to find the last of the local organic peaches and included them in my crisp. If you don’t have peaches, you can double the quantity of apples.

Preheat oven 375F
Cooking time 80 minutes
Serves 6

Ingredients:
5 medium apples
5 medium peaches
juice of 1/2 lemon
1/8 cup (30 ml) water
1/2 cup (125 ml) sugar
1/2 tsp (2 ml) cinnamon

1 cup (250 ml) oats
1/2 cup (125 ml) all purpose flour
1 cup (250 ml) chopped pecans
1/4 cup (65 ml) sugar
1/2 tsp (2 ml) salt
1/2 cup (125 ml) butter

Directions:
1. Peel, core and slice apples into 1/2″ pieces and place in a large mixing bowl.

2. Slice the peaches and cut into 1/2″ pieces. Add to the mixing bowl with the apples.

3. Add lemon juice, water, sugar and cinnamon to apple and peach mixture. Mix and set aside.

4. Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl and mix together. Using a fork break down the butter until small lumps form and incorporated into the dry ingredients.

5. Transfer the apple and peach filling into a medium-sized casserole dish.

6. Top the apples and peaches with the oat and pecan mixture and level with a spatula or spoon.

7. Bake in the oven at 375 degrees F for 50 – 60 minutes or until the apples and peach begin to bubble and the oats turn golden brown. Serve by itself or with vanilla ice cream.

    I just cooked your Vegetarian shepphards pie!! I loved it and so did my daughter. Great recipe Lily… keep them coming I have a lot of meals to make! Can’t wait to try your Mung dahl and red beet curry… I have beets in the fridge and did not know what to do with them… now I do. Big smiles!

    This has always been one of my favorite desserts! But with the peaches and pecans, it sounds scrumptious!
    Thanks Lily.
    Also, may I add that in buying apples from local growers, we help them keep the biodiversity alive! Often, the supermarkets have only 4 or 5 varieties of apples… what about all the other kinds? The apple festival in Vancouver at the UBC Botanical Garden had 250 local varieties of apples… so we must preserve the older less commercial varieties and thus keep the biodiversity alive for our planet!
