Fun Friday: InstantPot Apple Crisp from CenterCutCook (with a twist)

3 Nov

Ever have a last-minute craving? The Instant Pot is great for those!

Happy November!

It’s been quite a while since I’ve had the time to do a blog post, although I’ve had the best of intentions. I thought today’s recipe would be a good one to share on this nice fall weekend, now that the weather has that fall feel to it, at least in our neck of the woods.

As you know from my previous posts, we had an addition to our appliance family in September, and it got quite a lot of use right out of the gate. We had added an Instant Pot to our family. I initially shared a few recipes the first couple of weeks that we had it, but I did not get to share this one.

This was a last-minute recipe and it worked out great.

Late in the evening one Friday night, my friend Gina texted the group chat that she and I are in along with my friend Marcia. She’d just tried out a recipe from CenterCutCook for Instant Pot Apple Crisp.

Oooohhhhh…..I thought. I *love* apple crisp.

In fact, I love all things apple. I’d even just authored a special feature on a local apple orchard, Pippin Orchard. (You can read about Pippin Orchard here.) It was apple season, and I just happened to have apples on hand. However, I didn’t have a lot of them and there are five of us here.

It was also a little bit  late, and Apple Crisp takes some time, but since it was an Instant Pot recipe, it meant that I would be shaving some cook time off of the recipe and we’d still be able to have it for dessert that same night. The longest part of making apple crisp is peeling and cutting the apples, which I couldn’t avoid, but the Instant Pot would help with the rest.

Underneath the topping was a warm, bubbly apple crisp, just as if it had come out of the oven.

I decided to add a little twist to the recipe over at CenterCutCook and throw in some pears, just a couple of them, along with the apples I had here, doubling the recipe which said it served 3-4 people.

I peeled and chopped my apples and pears, and followed the recipe over at CenterCutCook’s site to a “t”, doubling the ingredients. In hindsight, I would not have doubled the nutmeg and cinnamon, since we thought it was a bit too savory with twice as much of the spices, but other than that, doubling the recipe and adding the pears to the apples made for a delightful fall dessert.

I encourage you to visit CenterCutCook to check out all their thousands of recipes, and if you have an Instant Pot and are looking for something different to make with it, give their apple crisp recipe a try!

Enjoy your weekend!
