I got this recipe from the Kraft Food & Family magazine. Nilla wafers add an extra bit of delicious texture and crunch to this heartwarming dessert.
- 8 cups granny smith apples, peeled and thinly sliced
- 1⁄2 cup firmly packed brown sugar, divided
- 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon, divided
- 1⁄3 cup old fashioned oats or 1⁄3 cup quick-cooking oats
- 1⁄4 cup cold margarine
- 25 reduced-fat vanilla wafers, crushed (about 1 cup)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Toss apples with 1/4 cup of the brown sugar and 1 tsp of the cinnamon. Spoon into 8- or 9- inch baking dish.
- Combine oats, the remaining brown sugar and 1 tsp cinnamon in medium bowl. Cut in margarine with pastry blender or two knives, until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add wafer crumbs, mix well. Spread crumb mixture evenly over apples.
- Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until apples are tender. Serve warm or cooled. Top with whipped topping.
I am eating this right now and it is so good and yummy and crispy. I used small green apples and left the skin on. I also used digestives like another reviewer as I had no wafers plus threw in some sultanas. Excellent recipe, many thanks.
After seeing Lalaloula's photo for this recipe, I knew I had to make it.So, on 11/08/11 I did. :). Other than cutting the recipe in half,this recipe was made as it was written.For some reason it didn't crisp up, but we did like the " extra something " that the vanilla wafers gave this. Thanks for posting and, " Keep Smiling :) "
This is a very nice, easy to make and yummy apple crisp recipe. I scaled it down to 2 cups apple in total and for that I used only 1/2 tbs sugar in total as my fruit was very sweet and ripe. I didnt have any vanilla wafers, so I subbed digestives, which worked out nicely. I found that for my oven the temp was a bit too high as some of the topping browned a bit too much. Other than that, though a true keeper. THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing it here with us, Crafty! :)
