Apple Crisp

Apple Crisp is a recipe that has been around for ages. My recipe comes from my classic Betty Crocker Cook Book, circa 1979, the source of many great time-tested recipes.

For a 9x13 pan

Fill pan 2/3 full with 6-8 cups peeled and sliced tart apples. My favorite apples are Staymans for baking.

Mix the following ingredients until crumbly
  • 1 cup - 1 1/3 cups brown sugar (depending on tartness of the apples)
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons nutmeg
  • 2/3 cup butter (10 tablespoons)

Spread on top of sliced apples and bake at 375 degrees for 45 -60 minutes until apples are tender when pierced with a cake tester. and top is a toasty brown.
