Easy Apple Crisp Recipe
(Recipe card is at the bottom of the page)
8 large apples
1/2 cup white sugar
2 tsps cinnamon
1/2 cup butter
1 1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup flour
2 cups oats
As you can see, the recipe calls for a lot of sugar. Adapt it to your own tastes or even use homegrown stevia instead of some or all the sugar. Read here about how I grew my own Stevia to use instead of sugar.
We planted fruit trees years ago when we moved here. Now every year, I can make about 4 of these Apple Crisps from our very own apples!
Wash and peel all of the apples.
then slice them right into a greased 9 x 13″ pan. How thin or thick you make your slices is totally up to you.
That’s a well stained recipe card there! This treat has been in my family for years and is my son Eli’s favourite recipe, so it’s named after him. I’ve been making this fruit crisp ever since my boys were little.
Sprinkle the white sugar and the cinnamon on top – make sure you get it to cover all of the apples completely.
Set the apples aside and ….
Soften the butter and cream it with the brown sugar. Add the flour, oats and salt and mix well to blend.
Spoon the oats mixture over the entire top – try to cover all of the apples with this top coating. Bake at 375 for 40 – 45 minutes.
Let it cool but enjoy a dish full while it is still warm in the pan. Apple Crisp is such comfort food for us.
This makes a large dish of crisp. Great for when company comes for coffee or as a dessert after dinner. Enjoy!
