Apple Crisp

The other night I thought that apple crisp sounded fantastic. I remembered I had on fairly large granny smith apple hiding in my fridge so I Googled "apple crisp" and This Recipe from Betty Crocker was the first thing in the results. It looked easy and Betty Crocker has never failed me before so I tried it out. Now I only had 1 apple so I didn't make the full recipe. I cut the quantities to the ingredients for the topping in half. It tasted great. Maybe next time I would toss the apples in a itty-bitty, tiny amount of sugar to make it a little gooier but it still tasted great without it. Betty Crocker didn't say to peel the apples, but I peeled them anyway.  It just sounded better that way.

Apple Crisp
  • 4 medium granny smith apples, sliced and peeled (4 cups)
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 old-fashioned oats
  • 1/3 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Preheat oven to 375ºF. Grease bottom and sides of 8-inch square pan. Spread apples in pan. In medium bowl, stir remaining ingredients until well mixed and crumbly; sprinkle over apples.Bake about 30 minutes or until topping is golden brown and apples are tender when pierced with a fork. Serve warm with vanilla Ice cream.


  1. Sounds fantastic - I'm going to try this tonight!

  2. I can smell it now...Looks so yummy! Clever with using just one apple too!

  3. I think we cook from the same cookbook of awesome comfort foods! I LOVE apple crisp and don't make it nearly enough. :) Thanks for sharing at Pin-ed it, Made it.


I'm sorry, but I've turned word verification on again. I hate trying to decipher the words just as much as anyone, but I'm getting way too much spam. I tried doing comment moderation as people suggested but the number or spam comments I had to sift through was ridiculous. I appreciate your comments and didn't want them to get lost among the spam. Hopefully, I can reduce the amount of spam and turn the word verification off soon.
