Grandma’s apple crisp

April 16, 2012 § 9 Comments

I grew up eating my grandmother’s apple crisp.  If she didn’t make it for us, then my mom was making it.  Apple crisp was one my family’s most favorite foods.  Grandmother’s recipe is delicious…but also very heavy on the butter and sugar.   Below, you’ll find my version of that famous apple crisp, minus exactly half of the butter and sugar that were in my grandmother’s recipe.


Grandma’s apple crisp

5-6 large apples, peeled, cored, and sliced

Juice of 1 lemon

1/3 cup sugar (white or brown sugar will do)

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

1/2 cup flour

3/4 cup uncooked rolled oats

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup butter, melted

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Combine the apples with the lemon juice, 1/3 cup sugar, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, and 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg.  Stir to coat the apples evenly.  Pour the apples into a greased glass dish and set aside.

Stir together the 1/2 cup flour, 3/4 cup oats, brown sugar, butter, and the 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon.  Scatter evenly over the apples.

Place in a preheated 350-degree fahrenheit oven, and cook for 1-hour until the top is brown and the apples are bubbly and fork tender.

Serves 4
