This is a classic dessert!! Nothing better on a cold day than a warm apple crisp with vanilla ice cream on top. I have tried alot of Apple crisp recipes and this is my favorite one!! It is really simple but tasty. All of the ingredients you should already have in your pantry other than maybe the apples. We love fresh apples so we usually have a bunch in the fridge.
1 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
2 cups oats~old fashioned are the best but use what you have on hand
1 cup flour
1/4 tsp each of baking soda and baking powder
Mix these all together with a pastry blender or a knife and a fork or your hands until well mixed and looks like this:
10 cups peeled and cored apples~any kind will do but granny smith work the best but I will tell you I use whatever I have at the time
1 cup granulated sugar
1 T. cornstarch
1 T. ground cinnamon
Dump into a greased 9x13 pan. and Sprinkle the oat mixture over the top of it like this:
This is what it looks like before going in the oven: Bake at 350 for about 45 minutes or until the apples are tender.You can check them by poking a fork into an apple. You may also want to cover this with foil after 30 minutes of cooking so the top doesn't brown up to fast!!
This is what it looks like when it come out of the oven. Sorry the pic isn't very good!!
