In Autumn, apples are at their peak of flavor and usually available in many varieties. This apple crisp recipe comes from the outstanding Cuisine at Home, but I’ve been making this easy and quick dessert for years. It will take you longer to peel and cut the apples than to make this dessert!

5 tbsp. unsalted butter, divided
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/3 cup rolled oats (not quick cooking)
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 tart (Braeburn or Jonagold) apples, cored & sliced into ¼-inch pieces (4 cups)
1/4 cup golden raisins
2 tbsp. granulated sugar
1 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
Vanilla ice cream, for serving

1. Over medium heat, melt 3 tbsp. butter in a nonstick skillet. Stir in pecans, oats, brown sugar, and a pinch of salt, and cook until mixture begins to brown, 5-6 minutes. (Cook the pecan-oat mixture over medium heat – too hot and the nuts and sugar will burn.) Transfer to a parchment-lined plate.

2. Wipe out skillet and return it to the burner. Add the remaining 2 tbsp. butter, apples and raisins. Saute over medium heat to soften, about 5-8 minutes. Stir in sugar, lemon juice, cinnamon, and another pinch of salt; simmer 2 minutes. Serve warm apples with crunchy topping and top with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. (Serves 2)
