  • 6 cups apples ,peeled, cored and sliced (use a baking apple)
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 Teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup butter, cold and cut into cubes
  • vanilla ice cream, optional


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Generously butter an 8 inch square baking pan.
    Place the peeled, cored and sliced apples into your prepared pan. 
    In a medium size bowl combine the brown sugar, oats, flour and cinnamon.Cut the butter into the mixture with a pastry blender until you have coarse crumbs. (Sometimes I find rubbing the mixture between your fingers works just as well as a pastry blender.) 
    Sprinkle the topping over the apples. Bake 25 - 35 minutes or until apples are tender. Test by sticking a fork down into the crisp, you will feel a slight resistance if the apples aren't tender. Bake an additional 10 - 15 minutes until apples are tender. Serve warm with a scoop of ice cream
