Gramma's Apple Crisp Recipe

Mmm... Apple Crisp with Ice Cream...
It's funny, I don't remember my Gramma Paton baking a lot, but the things she did make were always very yummy.  Last Christmas, I shared her Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookie Recipe and now I'm sharing her Apple Crisp recipe.

I make this recipe every fall. 



Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

In bowl #1, combine:
  • 4 cups - Apples, cut up (I use McIntosh) or you can use Rhubarb instead (yum!)
  • 3/4 cup - Sugar
  • 1/2 tsp - Cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup - Flour
Put this apple mixture into the baking dish (8x8 pan).

Pour 1/2 cup of water over the apple mixture.

Next, in bowl #2,  combine:
  • 1 cup - Flour
  • 1/2 cup - Rolled Oats
  • 3/4 cup - Brown Sugar (I usually have to chisel it out of the container in my cupboard and then soften it in the microwave.  I hope I'm not the only one who has to do this...)
  • 1/2 cup - Butter, melted
Mix the ingredients in bowl #2.  You are supposed to use a fork so it has a loose, crumbly texture, but I've been known to use a spoon and it still tastes yummy.  Sprinkle this over the apple mixture in the pan.

Bake for 35 minutes

If you want twice as much, just double all the ingredients and stick in a 9x13 pan!

It really is wonderful served warm with ice cream... (Now, I'm off to dish some up!) 

And, if truth be told, I've been known to have a bowl of it cold for breakfast too. (Shh!!)  Hey, it has both apples and oatmeal, so it's healthy, right?  ;)


Do you have a favorite fall recipe?

Oh this sounds like a wonderful breakfast! I know I'll be making this. And I better check out the peanut butter chocolate cookie recipe -- I don't remember seeing that last year!

LOL! Yes! Yes, it is a wonderful breakfast! :) The peanut butter chocolate cookie recipe is really easy too! (And, they taste a bit like Reeses Pieces...)
