4 cups sliced, peeled and pared tart apples (3 – 4 apples)
1/4 cup Grand Marnier liqueur (or orange juice)
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
Dash of salt
1/2 cup cold butter


  • Butter an oven-proof baking dish (I use a 6×9 oval).
  • In small mixing bowl, toss the apple slices with the Grand Marnier.  Pour the apple mixture into the prepared baking dish.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the sugar, flour, spices, and salt.  Cut in the butter until mixture is crumbly.  Spread evenly over the apples.
  • Bake at 375 degrees for 45 minutes or until apples are done and topping is crisp.
  • Serve apple crisp warm with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.

Hostess’s hint:  When choosing your apples, look for a variety that’s firm and a little on the tart side so that it won’t get mushy when cooked.  I’ve had great results using Braeburn apples in our apple crisp.
