Apple Crisp

Apple Crisp

Fall is my absolute favorite season…it has the best weather, the best holidays, and of course the best food!  I know it’s still a few months away, but I was needing a Fall fix to tide me over so I’m sharing my mom’s recipe for Apple Crisp.  When I was visiting my parents on Sunday, my mom got out her Better Homes and Gardens Jr Cookbook that she has had since she was a child.  She still uses the same recipe to make this delicious treat, and I’ve never had better!

Apple Crisp
3 medium-size apples
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup flour
3/4 cup quick-cooking rolled oats
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened.
Heat oven to 350 degrees.  Lightly grease an 8-inch round pan with a bit of butter.  Peel and core apples.  Slice thin and place in round pan.  Mix oats, sugar, and flour.  Mix butter in with your fingers.  Mixture will be crumbly.  Cover apples with mixture and bake for about 35 minutes.

*If you like, you can add cinnamon and nutmeg to the mixture.  Probably about 1/2 tsp of each would be perfect.
**Also, if you’re pressed for time, you can use a can of apple pie filling instead of of fresh apples and cut the baking time down to 20-25 minutes.

Check it out; the original recipe.

    Yes!!! Love finding things online that I can’t find here at home. I had this cookbook as a kid and I think this is the only recipe I liked. I have some apples and was looking for that cookbook and couldn’t find it. So glad you posted it. I remember that picture (cookbook photo) but never made mine with cheese slices. Time to get to peeling.
