Honeycrisp Apple Crisp

It seems like just a few weeks ago that we were celebrating the start of summer…so we were surprised when we found ourselves at the tail end of August already! Soon, school will start, leaves will change color – and Honeycrisp apples will return to our boxes of fruit in season. Happily, our Colorado peaches are still going strong (so there is still some summertime left!), but we’re just beginning to turn our thoughts to the sweet fall flavors to come, like this Honeycrisp Apple Crisp.

Honeycrisp Apple Crisp

2 honeycrisp apples
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup vanilla almond milk (or liquid of your choice)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons cold butter

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Chop apples and combine with 1/2 tablespoon cinnamon, salt, nutmeg and brown sugar in a small baking dish. In a separate bowl, stir flour, sugar and remaining cinnamon. Chop 1 tablespoon of butter and add it to flour. Mash with a fork until thoroughly combined and small bits of butter remain. Add vanilla and milk gradually, stiring as you go. The mix should not be watery or too thick. It should be somewhat sticky. Spread dough on top of apples, and place in oven. Bake at 375 for about 30 minutes, or until apples look juicy and topping is golden brown.
