Apple Crisp

Combine 5 chopped apples, 1/2 cup chopped pecans, 3 tablespoons flour, 3/4 cup sugar, 2 tablespoons maple syrup, and 1 tablespoon lemon juice.  Pour this mixture into an 8 in. X 8 in. baking pan.  Prepare the topping by combining 3/4 cup flour, 1/3 cup sugar, 1/4 cup packed brown sugar, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/4 cup chopped pecans, and 6 tablespoons chopped chilled butter.  Pour this mixture over the apple mixture in the baking pan.  Bake for 35 minutes at 350 degrees.

This dish had a bit too much sugar for my taste.  I would reduce the sugar in the apple mixture to 1/2 cup, and I would reduce the sugar in the topping to 1/4 a cup.

  1. I make apple crumble with rolled oats in the topping, in addition to the flour and sweeteners. It helps create a nice crispy texture and also cuts some of the sweetness.
