Tasty recipe: Crisp leaves mean Apple Crisp

Tasty apple crisp recipeRemember when they used to let you climb the trees at apple orchards to pick your own apples? Maybe I’m dating myself here and you don’t recall such days.

Trust me, it was good down home fun.

We always thought the apples on highest branches were the best. Up we’d go. Test the strength of the narrowing limbs.

I wonder if autumns of the past saw higher broken arm rates.  Maybe that’s the real reason it’s called “Fall”.

Today you be hard pressed (like cider) to find an orchard that allows such antics. But you can perform another autumnal ritual by whipping up an Apple Crisp.

It’s seriously one of the easiest desserts in the History of the World. Well, in the history of MY world, anyway.

Here’s what you need:

  • 8×8 glass dish, buttered
  • 4-5 medium apples, peeled, cored and sliced
  • 2/3 to ¾ packed brown sugar (depending on your sweet tooth)
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup oats
  • ½ cup butter, softened
  • ¾ tsp. cinnamon
  • ½ tsp. nutmeg
  • ¼ – ½ tsp. salt (depending on your salty tooth)
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)

Here’s what you do:

Preheat oven to 375. Put apple slices in bottom of greased dish. Mix remaining ingredients. Sprinkle over apples. Bake about 30-35 minutes.  Serve warm. So easy.

Wait! You need one more thing:

Vanilla ice cream. Any brand with ingredients you can pronounce. Just a little dab’ll do ya, but sweet mercy, unless you’re lactose intolerant, don’t go without the ice cream.


This would even make a great addition to a football party. Of course you can make this recipe vegan or gluten-free by using some of the standard replacement ingredients. What are some of your favorites?

Happy Autumn.

    Hi, I think this recipe would be great companion for a small gathering party, not sure about a football party though, because I’d prefer to have BBQ :)
