Apple Crisp is everyone's favorite, isn't it? How about Apple Crisp with Dried Cherries?
You can easily double the recipe to fill a half sheet pan, and it can be made a day ahead and reheated.
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 1/2 sticks butter cut into slices
1 cup old fashioned rolled oats
1/4 cup brown sugar
3 Tablespoons white sugar
pinch of salt
8 apples, cored, peeled, and sliced
1/4 cup sugar
juice of one lemon
1 cup dried cherries (can use dried cranberries or cut up dried apricots)
1/2 cup orange juice (can use apple juice)
4 Tablespoons melted butter
Preheat oven to 350. Spray a 9 x 13" baking pan
1. Topping: mix flour and cinnamon, rub in the butter with your fingers or a pastry blender, add oats, salt, sugar.
2. Put the apples in a bowl with lemon juice and remaining ingredients.
3. Spread apple mixture evenly into pan. Spread topping mixture evenly over the apples.
4. Bake in top half of preheated oven until topping is brown and apples are bubbling away below, about 50-60 minutes. Remove from oven. Serve hot, warm or room temperature with ice cream (cinnamon ice cream would be amazing) or whipped cream, or just how it is.
