My mother always made apple crisp in the fall. The smell reminds me of those cool, fall days of childhood! It’s also a really flexible recipe. You can play with the amount of apples or the size of the pan if you prefer a thicker apple filling. Or if you prefer a thinner layer of apples just use a larger dish or 1 or 2 less apples. You can’t mess up this recipe, I promise!
- 6-7 large apples, baking variety
- 8 tablespoons of butter, room temperature
- 1 cup of brown sugar
- ¾ cup all purpose flour
- ¾ cup of rolled oats
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- Preheat oven to 350F
- Prepare a 13×9 baking dish by greasing it with butter
- Peel, core and slice the apples into thin wedges. Lay them flat into your prepared baking dish.
- Combine butter, brown sugar, flour, rolled oats, cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla into a bowl. Using a butter knife, cut the butter into the ingredients until you have a well combined, crumble mixture. Using your clean or gloved hands is also a really great way to get this done well!
- Sprinkle the crumble mixture evenly on top of your apples.
- Bake for 30-40 minutes until bubbly and apples are soft.
- Enjoy warm, cold, or à la mode.
