Bourbon Apple Crisp


Apple crisp is one of my favorite fall recipes! It's a tradition in our house to bake some easy fall sweets, turn on a fun Halloween/autumn movie (Hocus Pocus anyone?), and smell the delicious autumn recipe baking while we watch it. Way better than a fall scented candle because your house smells amazing, and you get to eat it!



This apple crisp has a super delicious secret ingredient - Brown Sugar Bourbon soaked raisins! The bourbon flavor is subtle, and adds a deep warm flavor to compliment the tart apples. Soooo good! Just remember that the raisins need to soak up the bourbon overnight, so there's just a tiny bit of planning ahead in this recipe.








Filling Ingredients: 

2 1/2 lbs Granny Smith apples (about 5), peeled, cored and thinly sliced
2 teaspoons lemon juice
 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup raisins
1/3 cup Brown Sugar Bourbon 103

Topping Ingredients: 

1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/4 cup rolled oats
3/4 cups brown sugar, packed
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
12 tablespoons cold butter

Directions: 

In a small bowl, combine the raisins and Brown Sugar Bourbon. Cover with plastic wrap, and allow to soak overnight.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. 

Toss together all the filling ingredients in a large mixing bowl, apples through bourbon soaked raisins (plus any bourbon in the bowl that didn't soak in - waste not!). Spoon the filling into a greased 9x13 baking dish and set aside.

For the topping, stir together the dry ingredients, flour through salt. Cut the butter into the dry ingredients using a pastry cutter, two forks, or your fingers (my favorite method). Sprinkle the crumble topping evenly over the filling. Bake for 45-50 minutes, or until the crumble is golden brown and mixture is bubbling.
