I adapted this recipe from an old cookbook recipe. I am famous for this in my family.
- 946.36 ml apples
- 158.51-177.44 ml packed brown sugar (light)
- 118.29 ml flour
- 118.29 ml oats
- 3.69 ml cinnamon
- 78.07 ml butter or 78.07 ml margarine
- 2.46 ml cinnamon (for apples)
- 29.58 ml sugar (for apples)
- The ingredients as listed should make enough to fill an 8x8 square baking dish. For a 13x9 baking dish, I usually quadruple the recipe.
- For the apples, tart is usually better. Apples will cook down, so for 13x9, 2 bags of apples usually does the trick. This will vary on the size of bag, and size of apples.
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
- Spray a 13x9 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
- Peel and slice apples, put into large bowl.
- Sprinkle an extra 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon, and 2 tablespoons of sugar on top of apples. Mix cinnamon and sugar through apples (I use my hands for this).
- Place apples into baking dish.
- In medium to large bowl, combine brown sugar, flour, oats, butter and cinnamon. Use your hands, it works the best.
- Place the mixture on top of the apples, packing it down lightly to prevent it from falling off.
- Place baking dish on top of cookie sheet to prevent ooze from dripping down into oven.
- Bake at 375 for approximately 30 minutes or until top is golden brown (time may vary depending on your oven).
Just what I was looking for on this fall day! I tossed in some pears and didn't add more than a tsp of sugar to the apples...and cut the butter to 4T b/c that's what was left in a stick. Very yummy with some vanilla icecream melting over it. Thank you!
The easiest and best apple crisp I've ever made, leftovers taste great for breakfast too!
This is delicious. After a long day with my 4 month old, being a little sleep deprived, I misread the 4 cups of apples, and took it as saying 4 apples. Well, the apple crisp turned out perfectly despite my mistake. Best apple crisp I've had. Will make again :)
