Baked Apple with Crumb Topping

Watching Food Network can be dangerous. I saw Sunny Anderson make these today and was checking to see if I had all the ingredients about 10 minutes later! Lucky me, I did :)

Baked Apple with Crisp Topping
Recipe by Sunny Anderson


2 apples (recommended: Fuji or McIntosh)
I used golden delicious
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/4 cup strawberry jam, jelly or preserves
2 tablespoon all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons butter, cold and diced
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 cup oats, uncooked
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Pinch salt


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Cut each apple in half along its equator. Using a melon
baller (I just used a spoon), cut out each side of the core, creating a rounded hole. Rub exposed apple flesh with lemon juice. Place 1 tablespoon of jam into each hole. For the topping: in a small bowl mix together flour, butter, brown sugar, oats, cinnamon and salt. Press this mixture on the top of each apple, covering jam. Place in a baking dish filled with about a 1/4-inch of water. Bake until top is golden brown and apple is tender, about 35 to 40 minutes.

Cecily and I really enjoyed this as a late afternoon treat.
