Apple Crisp

Apple crisp is such a comfort food, just like an old friend. So I asked one of my long-time, best, prairie friends, Faye, if she had a good apple crisp recipe. Of course, she did. The apples are tender, the topping is crispy and so yummy. I made some yesterday and will make some more today to freeze. Enjoy!


Apple Filling:
8 cups apples, peeled, cored and sliced
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons white sugar

1/2 cup margarine
1/2 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup flour
1/2 cup oatmeal
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon salt

- Mix together topping ingredients and place in refrigerator. The colder the better, as this will give you a crispier topping!
- Peel, core and slice apples. Toss and coat with lemon juice and sugar.
- Place apple mixture in a greased 9x9 baking dish.
- Spread topping over apples.
- Bake @ 375° for 35-45 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes before serving.
- Serve with ice cream, or as Faye highly recommends cold for breakfast!

  10. Fabulous recipe! You are right, apple crisp is so comforting. I would love this as it is or with ice cream!

  11. In England we would call this 'Apple Crumble'. We usually eat it in the winter when it's cold with either hot vanilla custard or icecream. One of my favourites is Cherry crumble, another is Pear and Chocolate chip crumble. I will start making these around October time when the cold weather kicks in over here.. Enjoy yours !
