My most favorite dish to make in the Fall is apple crisp. There is nothing better. Especially when it is served warm and topped with a scoop of vanilla ice.
I started liking apple desserts back when I was a little girl and my grandpa would make apple pie. His was the only apple pie I really liked though and he claimed it was because he only used Macintosh apples. They are a little sweeter and juicier than some of the other varieties and so this is what I have continued using in all of my apple baking recipes.
Although I love apple pie too, the crispy crunch of the apple crisp topping and the easiness of making it has won me over to making this dessert more often than the pie.
I’m anxious to share this recipe with you but before I do, I need to introduce to you my very loyal assistant, Sir Kirby:
He is just so cute! However, Kirby knows that he is not supposed to be in the kitchen at counter level – especially when I am getting ready to bake. As soon as I snapped this picture, he bolted. Busted!
Okay, now that I have a clean counter, let’s get baking!
Apple Crisp Recipe:
- 5-7 apples (I like Macintosh)
- 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 1 cup oatmeal
- 2/3 cup stick margarine or butter
- 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 1 1/2 teaspoons ground nutmeg
1. Heat oven to 375 degrees. Grease a 9×13 pan.
