Apple Crisp

Apple Crisp is a family favorite. I have tried different recipes over the years, but mine is basic and easy. It can be cooked in the oven or in a dutch oven.


5-6 Granny Smith Apples
2 T Cinnamon
1/2 cup Brown Sugar
1 cup Butter
1 cup Sugar
1 cup Flour
2 cups Oats


Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly grease 9×13 pan. Core, peel and slice the apples into bite size pieces and place in a mixing bowl. Add cinnamon and brown sugar. Stir until all of the apples are evenly coated. Pour into the pan and evenly spread out.

In the mixing bowl you just emptied combined butter, sugar, and flour and cut with a pastry cutter or fork until crumbly. Stir in oats.

Sprinkle mixture over the apple mixture and bake for 30 minutes. Serve with whipping cream or ice cream.
