This is my “go to” dessert when I fail to plan ahead. I just about always have apples around the house and everything else is a pantry staple. It is YUMMY and gets even better when you add a scoop of vanilla ice cream. The only downside is that it is so good that it gets eaten before you take a picture of it!
based on recipe from Better Homes & Gardens New Baking Book
5 cups sliced, peeled apples (I like to use Granny Smith)
3 Tbsp granulated sugar
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 + 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup butter
Preheat oven to 375°F.
Place apples in an ungreased 2 quart casserole dish (I use an 8X8″ pyrex). Stir in granulated sugar and sprinkle on 1/2 tsp cinnamon.
Mix rolled oats, brown sugar, flour & cinnamon in a bowl. Cut butter into mixture until crumbly. Sprinkle mixture evenly across apples.
Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until “crisp” is golden brown and apples are done.
Recipe Notes: The book says it serves 6. I would say 5 at most. If we have visitors, I always double this recipe. Leftovers taste great so no worries if you have too much!
