Recipe - Apple Crisp

Amy took Abbey and Madyson apple-picking recently, and sent us several pictures of the girls enjoying their day.

I don't know how Amy and Glenn used the apples they got, but I know what I would do with freshly-picked apples: make apple crisp. It's easier and quicker than apple pie, and just as tasty.

Apple Crisp

1/2 c. quick-cooking rolled oats

1/2 c. brown sugar, packed

1/4 c. all-purpose flour

1/2 t. ground cinnamon

1/4 to 1/2 c. butter or margarine

2 lbs. apples (or about 6 medium). peeled, cored, and sliced

2 T. granulated sugar

Combine oats, brown sugar, flour, and cinnamon. In a medium baking dish, spread apple slices. Sprinkle granulated sugar over apple slices. Top with oat mixture, then dot with butter. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 to 45 minutes. Makes about 6 servings. Serve with ice cream.

I often make this for dessert when we have guests. I'll assemble the apple crisp ahead of time, then put it in the oven to bake right before we sit down to eat. As we enjoy our meal, we slowly become aware of the delicious aroma of apples baking. (Beth W. was my tutor in that hospitality tip!)

I made apple crist two days ago.
The apples were a little tough and not soft and gushy like I like.
I think they were called Washingto Apples.
Do you use a certain variety that gets soft before the top burns?

Donna, I usually use Granny Smith apples.

I LOVE apple crisp. I always add vanilla ice cream. I think I'll make some tonight for the kids...thanks for the idea.

Now can you give me the recipe for making Souther California feel vaguely like crisp fall weather?

I love *Crisps* - making them with all fruits, esp peaches and blueberries. Later in the Fall, closer to T'giving, I add some cranberries to my apples.

Yum! Thanks for the recipe. It looks like I can adjust the amount of butter to make it low-fat enough for my meal plan. Of course, the more butter, the richer the flavor, but I bet it would still be good.

I've always loved apple crisp with cream poured over it. I haven't had any for ages and your recipe brought forth some great memories. Thanks.

Hi -

I made this recipe tonight, and it was SO yummy!

I didn't have quick oats, but non-quick worked, too. They were just a tad chewy. I used Gala apples and substituted apple pie spice for the cinnamon.

SLURP! Thank you!

(And I'll be moving to your neck of the woods at the end of next week. I can't wait to meet all the homeschoolers in the area!)
