One of the girls in my dorm gave me this recipe. She said when her uncle (a Vermont transplant) missed Vermont, her aunt prepared this for him. It is a wonderful substitute for a traditional apple pie and is great either alone or with vanilla ice cream.
- 6 apples, peeled, cored, and sliced
- 1 cup maple syrup
- 1⁄2 cup flour
- 3⁄4 cup quick-cooking rolled oats
- 1⁄2 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup butter or 1 cup margarine
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
- Place apples in an 8x8 pan and toss with the maple syrup.
- In a separate bowl, combine dry ingredients; cut in the butter until mix is crumbly. Sprinkle over the apples.
- Bake 35 minutes or until top is golden brown.
- Cool slightly and serve with a quality vanilla or cinnamon ice cream.
This makes a great apple crisp! I brought a pan of this (doubled recipe) to work, and it didn't even make it to the end of the day (I had brought it along with french vanilla ice cream, C & D's Mommy's Cider Sauce, and Rita L.'s Tiramisu Cake from Tim; everyone had a helping of everything!). I added some cinnamon to both the apples and the topping (I need cinnamon in my crisp). I only used 1 1/3 cup butter in the topping because 2 cups just seemed like too much, and I think I could have even gotten away with using one cup of butter for a doubled recipe. I used a full two cups of maple syrup which created quite a bit of liquid in the pan once it was cooked and the syrup thinned out (much of which ended up on my car seat and my pant leg when I transported it lol). I will probably halve the syrup as well when I make it next time. Very good, thanks for posting!
we're a big fan of appple crisps & I always bring maple syrup back from Maine w/me so this was perfect! Actually, the apples came from Maine, too. Next time, I'll halve the syrup & butter. THE PICKY ONE was really mad that dh finished it - she wanted it for breakfast the next day! Thanks for posting!
Wow Redneck Epicurean, this was great. We really enjoyed this tender, sweet crisp. I did cut the butter and maple syrup amounts in half. My apples were on the small side. This was fast and easy to make. A wonderful comfort food. Thanks so much for sharing. I will be making this again often.
