I've been meaning to share this recipe all month. This is one of my favorite apple recipes. I've been thinking about it since Holiday Mini Collection catalog came out with the Apple Cider Designer Paper pictured here. I love making this recipe using my KitchenAid Food Processor to slice all the apples! I can literally slice a dozen apples in less than 3 minutes. The original recipe is from Pampered Chef, I got it when I hosted my first cooking show back in 1995. I have modified it over the years. I hope you enjoy it!
Quick Apple Crisp
5 Granny Smith apples
(I have used all kinds of apples, Red Delicious and Gala. Use more if you would like your servings to be taller)
1 package (9 ounces) yellow cake mix (basically a half of a box)
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
1/2 cup chopped nuts (I use more like a full cup and typically I use pecans)
Preheat oven to 350°F. Peel, core and slice apples. (I use my food processor to do the slicing). Place apples in Deep Dish Baker. If you really like pecans, sprinkle them throughout the apples.
Combine cake mix, sugar, cinnamon, butter and nuts in a bowl. Mix until crumbly. Sprinkle mixture evenly over apples.
Bake 35-40 minutes or until apples are tender. Serve warm with ice cream or whipped topping, if desired.
