Apple Crisp

"This is the crisp my mom always made when I was growing up. We like it with vanilla ice cream on top--yummm! You can also make it with peaches instead of apples, although I'd suggest reducing or omitting the cinnamon and increasing the nutmeg when making peach crisp. I like to prepare it while dinner is cooking, then pop it in the oven to bake while we eat dinner. When dinner's over--voila! Hot apple or peach crisp, all ready to serve!"

  1. Delicious! I butchered your recipe and made it for one person!! No one else will eat cooked fruit. But despite my adjustments, your recipe came out perfectly. I would add more cinnamon and nutmeg to the top, but that is the only change I would make. I also had no ice cream, but with it this recipe would be heaven! Thanks so much for posting! Made for photo tag!
  2. This season our apple tree is getting a workout every couple of days. This recipe is foolproof! Adding a bit of allspice and cloves to the cinnamon was wonderful.
  3. This was so easy and tasted great. I had a lot of apples that needed to be used so decided to make this(I had also chosen this for one of the tag games I am playing). Everyone loved it and I loved that it was not loaded with sugar(I used 1/3 of a cup) but was still sweet. I also ended up using wheat flour instead of regular and it still turned out great.
