For the last couple of years I have wanted to go apple picking, but somehow the fall gets away from me and I haven’t been able to make it. This year is no exception. I wasn’t able to pick my own apples this year, but that did not keep me from making some of my favorite apple recipes. One of my favorite fall desserts is apple crisp.
This is one of the easiest dessert recipes. You probably have most of the ingredients on hand. The only thing that would make this recipe easier is having an apple corer & cutter. I don’t know anyone who does not love apple crisp, especially if it is served with some vanilla icecream.
This is pretty much a guilt free dessert. Just think it has a serving of fruit for the day. I tried to cut both the sugar & butter of the original recipe. I baked this recipe in an 11 inch oval dish, but I think it would fit nicely in an 8x8 pan. Try to go apple picking this fall for me, but if you can’t just make this apple crisp!
- 6 medium apples (I used McIntosh), peeled, cored & sliced
- 1 tablespoon of fresh lemon juice
- 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup rolled oats
- 2 tablespoons of butter
Preheat oven to 375°F. In a mixing bowl, combine apples, lemon juice, and vanilla. Toss to combine.
Layer sliced apples in a 11 inch oval (or approximately the same size) baking pan.
Combine cinnamon, brown sugar, oatmeal in a bowl. Cut in the butter. Sprinkle sugar mixture over apples.
Bake 30 minutes or until topping looks crunchy and apples are tender.
Serve with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
