Delicious Apple Crisp

Saturday September 18, 2010

Last night, I had some ladies over to enjoy a night out (in) and check out some fine jewelry.  Since the air has turned cool, it seemed like a good night to make this delicious apple crisp.  I got the recipe from a friend from my mom’s group and I love it because it tastes and smells soooo good.   So, I thought I would share it with you.  It smelled so good, I forgot to take a picture before diving in, so I used the picture above from Flickr to demonstrate the yumminess.

Lara’s Nana’s Apple Crisp


  • 1/2 bag of yellow delicious apples
  • 1/2 bag granny smith apples
  • ~1/2 tsp. lemon juice
  • ~1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 stick margarine (I use butter), softened
  • 1/4 cup Quaker oats
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar


Preheat oven to 350°.  Butter a shallow baking dish.

Peel core and slice apples.   After slicing each apple, put the slices in a mixture of water and lemon juice to keep them from browning, then transfer to shallow baking dish.  Repeat until dish is full of apples.

Note:  My 9″ x 9″ pan held about 5 large apples.

Sprinkle apples with cinnamon (I didn’t measure the amount).

In a separate bowl, combine butter, flour, oats, and sugar until crumbly.  You can mix with a wooden spoon, but I found using my fingers worked well.    Spread crumbs over apples.

Bake at 350° for 45 min to 1 hour.   For an extra treat, serve with ice cream.
