For a simple, fruity, fall comfort dessert, nothing beats a good apple crisp! (Not even apple pie.) We never tire of this autumn treat at our house, with its crunchy sweet topping complimenting the tart apples. I’ve even served it up for a football team breakfast or two. Don’t have apples? Feel free to substitute pears, cherries, rhubarb, or peaches.
- 3 pounds tart apples; peeled, sliced, and chopped
- 1 cup melted butter
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup old-fashioned oats
- 1 cup flour
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- ½ teaspoon salt
Arrange apples in a 9×13 baking dish. In a large bowl, mix together butter, sugars, oats, flour, cinnamon, and salt. Crumble over the apples. Bake at 375° for 40-45 minutes.
Apple crisp is delicious on its own, and indulgent topped with homemade vanilla ice cream.
So tell me. Apple pie or apple crisp? What’s your vote? (Maybe you should make this recipe before you decide. ;) )
