Apple- Oatmeal Crisp w/ Irish Whiskey Cream


1/2 cup (1 stick) cold unsalted butter, cut into Tablespoons, divided
2 pounds Rome Beauty or Winesap apples, peeled, cored and sliced
2 Tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 cup packed light brown sugar, divided
1 cup all-purpose flour, divided
2 Tablespoons Irish whiskey
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon cardamom
pinch of salt
1/4 cup Irish oatmeal
1/4 cup toasted, chopped walnut pieces

1 cup heavy whipping cream
1 Tablespoon granulated white sugar
2 Tablespoons Irish whiskey


1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Lightly butter 11x7-inch baking pan and set aside.

2. In a large skillet, melt 3 Tablespoons of butter over medium-high heat. Add apples, lemon juice, 1/2 cup of the brown sugar and 1 Tablespoon of the flour. Stir well, and cook for 5 minutes. Add the whiskey, cinnamon, cardamom and salt, stir well, and cook for 1 minute. Remove from heat.

3. In a large bowl, combine remaining flour, oatmeal and remaining 1/2 cup sugar. Add remaining butter, and with your fingers or a pastry blender, work the mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs. Add the walnuts and mix well.

4. Place the apple mixture in the greased pan and sprinkle crumb mixture evenly over the top. Bake until golden brown and bubbly, about 35-40 minutes.

5. While crisp is baking, prepare whiskey cream. Whip the cream until it begins to form soft peaks. Add the sugar and whiskey and beat until stiff peaks form. Cover and chill until needed.

6. Serve crisp warm with the Irish Whiskey Cream.
