Making Apple Crisp

MAKING APPLE CRISP – Looking for a nice fruity dessert that can be served warm or cold but isn’t a pie?  Try this apple crisp recipe and soon you may be experimenting by pairing your apples with pears, cherries, or cranberries.  Maybe you’ll want to add some ground flax seed or nuts to the topping.  Serve it by itself, or try it with a drizzle of warm caramel, a scoop of ice cream, or a dollop of whipped topping.  However you make this recipe, it is sure to be a hit.

Note:  I have found that Granny Smith and Golden Delicious apples work the best.


 4-5 lbs apples

 1/8 cup sugar

 1/2 tsp. nutmeg



 1 & 1/4 cup brown sugar

 2/3 cup  each of oatmeal, flour and butter

 1 & 1/4 tsp cinnamon

 3/4 tsp. salt


Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.


Make filling:   

Peel, core and slice apples- using enough to fill a 9 x 13 baking dish.  In small bowl, mix sugar and nutmeg and sprinkle over apples.  Toss gently, then smooth out and press down.


Prepare topping: 

In bowl combine remaining ingredients, except for the butter and mix well.  Add butter and cut into dry mix until crumbly.  Scatter over apple filling.

Bake uncovered for 45 minutes, or until bubbly.  Cool 1 hour on counter top,  serve warm or refrigerate.  Will keep for 3-4 days.


Serving Suggestions:

You can serve Apple Crisp hot or cold – it really is delicious either way.  If you like a little extra with your desert then try a scoop or two of vanilla ice cream or a nice helping of freshly whipped double cream.  Yes, I know, it’ll ruin the waistline but there are somethings in life that simply cannot be helped and a treat every now and then certainly won’t harm you.
