A traditional autumn dessert that's delicious served with vanilla ice cream. I've often made this recipe "diabetic-friendly" without sacrificing taste or quality by using Splenda No-Calorie Sweetener. Directions are included.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Toss apples with lemon juice, sugar, and cinnamon; turn into an 8x8" baking pan that has been lightly coated with no-stick cooking spray; dot with butter.
  2. Cut together flour, brown sugar, and butter until crumbly; sprinkle evenly over apples.
  3. Bake at 350° for 30-40 minutes until apples are tender; serve warm with vanilla ice cream or fresh whipped cream.
  4. VARIATION: This recipe can be made diabetic-friendly by substituting Splenda for the granulated sugar and substituting 1/2 cup Splenda for 1/2 cup of the brown sugar - the remaining 1/2 cup of brown sugar is still used.

LOVED IT LOVED IT LOVED IT! Quick, simple, and delicious. I also added a little more than a dash of allspice and have used lime juice instead of lemon juice. I had to make two in one day because at the first taste it was gone by 8:00 am.

The apples (I used Organic Honeycrisp) were great! BUT, the crisp part of the receipe was not all that good. Became soggy within a few hours because of the moisture in the apples. Not worth the 1/2 cup of butter that the crisp needed, healthwise.

I made this for a work dessert and it was a huge hit! People said it was the best they ever had. I did double the cinnamon and it tasted great. I used the diabetic version and no one could even tell.
