Apple Crisp

One of my colleagues at work gave me a bag of apples from her neighbor's tree. And a strong hint that I should use them to make a treat for the office! I made this apple crisp, and it was a HUGE hit. No wonder - juicy, cinnamon and sugar apples are cooked under a oatey topping that - true to its name - becomes crisp! It is SOOO good. Topped with vanilla ice cream, this is a wonderful seasonal dessert, and I wouldn't blame you if you wanted to eat it for breakfast, too. (It's fruit and oatmeal, right??)

First prepare the apples. This will take awhile, because you need about 10 cups! You want to peel, core and slice the apples - I have one of these neat tools. I only use it once or twice a year but it is worth it!

Toss the apples with the lemon juice, and then transfer them to a 9x13 baking dish. In a small bowl, combine the sugar, flour and cinnamon and then sprinkle over the apples.

Stir to coat all the apple pieces, then pour the water over.

For the yummy topping, combine the flour, brown sugar,

and oats. Use a fork to mix in the butter until the mixture is clumpy.

Top the apples with the oat mixture

then sprinkle with cinnamon. Bake for about 45 minutes until the topping is golden and the filling is bubbly.

You can serve this warm, or at room temperature. But be sure to serve it with vanilla ice cream. (With caramel sauce if you're really daring...)

  1. I love apple crisp. My daughter makes it often and adds cranberries. As much as I like cranberries, I prefer it to be all apple, as you made it.

  2. Your awesome Apple Crisp is just in time for fall and a perfect dessert. Enjoy your weekend and thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday.
    Come Back Soon!
