Apple Crisp Recipe, Mmmm

October 21st, 2008 · 4 Comments

This weekend we went apple picking and got a bag full of assorted kinds of apples.  I’m not crazy about apple pie, so I made an apple crisp.  My husband has memories of a delicious apple crisp that he had when he was little.  No recipe I found anywhere was quite right so I came up with this one taking bits and pieces from other recipes.  Even now, he says I don’t have it matching his memory apple crisp.  My question is, is anything ever as tasty as you remember it when you were young?  I used to love Hershey Chocolate Bars.  Now?  Not so much.  I’m sure that those chocolate bars used to taste better!

Following is the recipe how I made it this weekend.  My guy’s requests for the next time are: less brown sugar, more flour, more oats.

Apple Crisp

Apple Mix

  • about 5 apples peeled, cored and sliced (I used 4 big apples)
  • 2/3 cup sugar (more or less depending on how sweet the apples are)
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon


  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup butter

Grease 8″ square glass baking dish.

Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees.

Apple Mix: Mix up apples, sugar and cinnamon in a bowl.

Put apple mixture in greased pan, dot with 1-2 tbs butter, cover loosely with foil and bake for 30 minutes at 425 degrees.

Topping: While apple mix is in the oven, mix first four topping ingredients thoroughly. Then cut in butter until it is completed mixed in and the mixture is crumbly.

After 30 Minutes lower oven temperature to 375 degrees, add topping mixture and bake for an additional 15 minutes, or until topping is browned and apples are cooked.

Serve warm, with ice cream or whipped cream

or, it’s yummy cold, too!

    your right the temps. here are glorious in the fall but I know you are much cooler in july than me so it’s a trade-off!
