Picking apples is one of our favorite family activities in the fall. I am convinced that picking the apples yourself makes them taste so much better. However, I generally wash all the apples when we get home, and stare at our collection with a what have I done?! feeling. Like, we have to use and eat all these apple before they go bad. It’s about that time when I start scouring the internet for yummy-sounding apple recipes, or in this case, stealing one from my mom. Today, I’m sharing her super easy, and super tasty apple crisp recipe! This one is great for kids to help out with, too! This girls had a blast helping me measure and mix the ingredients – which makes eating it even more fun!What you need:
- 6 apples, peeled and sliced
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 3/4 cup uncooked Old Fashioned Oats
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 cup butter, cold
- Optional: caramel sauce, vanilla ice cream
What you do:
- Preheat the oven to 375. Spray your baking dish with Pam, and line with the sliced, peeled apples.
- In a bowl, mix together flour, brown sugar, oats, and cinnamon. Add vanilla, and cut in butter with a fork. You want to mash it until it’s nice and clumpy.
- Sprinkle the lumpy mixture over the apples.
- At this time, you can drizzle with caramel, my mom said it’s amazing, but I skipped this step (only because we didn’t have caramel sauce!)
- Bake 30-35 minutes, until the topping has browned, and the apples are soft.
- Serve warm over vanilla ice cream, or (if you’re like David) eat right out of the pan!
Happy baking, friends!
