Crispy, Crunchy, Gooey Apple Crisp

What would you do if given a bag of apples? Well I guess you could eat them just as they are, but where would be the fun in that? A "funner" way to eat them (although probably not as healthy!) would be to cook them as a dessert. Similar to apple crumble, apple crisp is a treat that is easy to make and oh so delicious!

Serves 8

Apple Filling:
3 pounds (about 7-8) apples, peeled, cored and sliced
½ cup packed brown sugar
1 tbsp all-purpose flour
1 tsp ground cinnamon

1 cup quick-cooking oats
1 cup all-purpose flour
½ cup packed brown sugar
¼ tsp salt
½ cup butter, melted

  • Preheat oven to 350°F
  • For the apple filling, mix all the ingredients in a large bowl (use your hands!) and then place into a 9x13 inch pan.
  • For the crisp topping combine the oats, flour, brown sugar and salt, mix well. Pour in the melted butter and mix well again. Crumble evenly over the apple mixture.
  • Bake for about 45 minutes until apples are tender and topping is golden brown.
  • Serve warm or at room temperature, with vanilla ice cream or a little whipped cream, if desired.
