Apple Crisp

Here's another apple recipe. I have failed miserably at using up all of my apples. I probably still have about 20lbs worth of apples. I have a list of recipes but very little motivation to stand around peeling, coring, and slicing up the apples. What's wrong with me?? Why don't I understand that this delicious fruit is dying to be used and consumed?!


Old-Fashioned Apple Crisp

Source: Taste of Home (

4 cups sliced peeled tart apples (I used Golden Delicious)

3/4 cup packed brown sugar

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 cup rolled oats

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon ground allspice

1/3 cup cold butter or margarine

Vanilla ice cream (optional)

Place apples in a greased 8-in. square baking dish. In a bowl, combine brown sugar, flour, oats, cinnamon and allspice; cut in butter until crumbly. Sprinkle over apples. Bake at 375 degrees F for 30-35 minutes or until apples are tender. Serve warm with ice cream if desired.

That looks really good! I'm a fellow TWD baker, and I was thinking that it would be nice if we all could chip in and get Laurie some small token/gift for all the work she does. Would you be willing to contribute? If I can get enough people, it would only be about $1 per person. No pressure :-) Let me know! bethberg12@yahoo.com

Hey Steph - this looks great. Have you ever made applesauce? That uses a lot of apples and I leave the skin on mine. Here's my recipe - it's very good.
