Apple Crisp

Apple Crisp

This classic dessert brings back fond memories from my childhood. I don’t have the exact recipe my mom used, but this one was a big hit!! We still have this little 5 foot apple tree in our front yard and the apples are actually really good! We are still getting rid of it eventually. Not only did we plant a beautiful red blossom tree like 3 feet away, but after wading through a layer of mushy fallen apples in my parents backyard I was reminded why I detest the thought of a matured fruit tree.

I know that a lot of recipes call for a mixture to coat the apples, but this version is just a little healthier with less butter and no white sugar. And the apples still turn out delicious, and sweet!

So to celebrate the start of fall and another great movie night with Alanna (soon to be roomie) we went to this favorite cinnamon apple treat!

If you are a hard core apple fan this would go well with the Caramel Apple Sangria I just posted 😉


3-4 apples~ Peeled and thinly sliced

1/2 cup butter~ softened, but not melted

1 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp nutmeg (optional)

1/4 tsp salt

1 cup flour

1 cup brown sugar

1 1/2 cups quick oats

Putting it together:

Preheat oven to 375. Use a pie dish or a deep baking dish. Put the sliced apples in the dish. Sprinkle the cinnamon and nutmeg over the apples. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, butter, oats and salt. Crumble the mixture over the apples. Bake for 30 minutes.

Serve it up with some vanilla ice cream or caramel sauce and enjoy!
