directions

  • 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.
  • Cut together flour, brown sugar, and butter until crumbly; sprinkle evenly over apples.
  • Bake at 350° for 30-40 minutes until apples are tender; serve warm with vanilla ice cream or fresh whipped cream.
  • 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.

    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.

    Sometimes I like just a simple crisp topping, not oatmeal or nuts and this fit the bill perfectly! I used orange juice instead of lemon and apple pie spice instead of cinnamon. I added a pinch of salt to the crust to bring out the sweetness. It made a lovely apple crisp with a rich, crisp topping and we loved it with Coolwhip. Thanks, Carole in Orlando

    I use Splenda too. However, I use oatmeal flakes with less flour & add cinnamon to the topping (crumble). It doesn't get soggy. Also, some varieties of apples are moister than others. So take that into consideration too.

    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.

    This recipe was exactly what I was looking for. It gave me a chance to get rid of the apples my children had picked. I did substitute orange juice for the lemon juice and apple pie spice for the cinammon. Very easy to make and VERY good to eat!!
