Apple Crisp

Autumn in NY + fresh picked apples = heaven.

6-8 c. apples, peeled and sliced
3 Tbl. sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon

2 c. oatmeal (I prefer old-fashioned rather than instant)
1/2 c. flour
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 c. chopped pecans (optional)
1/2 c. butter, melted
Whipped cream or vanilla ice cream for serving

Combine apples, 3 Tbl. sugar, and 1 tsp. of cinnamon in a bowl.  Transfer to a greased baking dish (this amount usually fits perfectly in my 7 x 11 pan).  Thoroughly combine remaining ingredients (using your hands if necessary) and crumble over the top the of the apples.  Bake at 350 for 35-45 minutes, or until the apples mixture starts bubbling.  Serve warm with whipped cream or ice cream (or cold/reheated for breakfast the next morning :).


  1. An autumn classic. Sounds delish!

  2. We just went apple picking today. I honestly can say it's my favorite thing to do in the whole world! I might just have to make this apple crisp tomorrow evening.

  3. Ooooo, I am so excited. We went apple picking last monday and I have 2 bushels of apples that I need to get working on. This is a breakfast crisp, right? :)

  4. Woohoo! 40 lbs of apples are sitting on my counter. My family will love this.

  5. My kids helped me make this. They love it. This morning someone mentioned that they once ate a blackberry apple crisp that was really good, so I decided to add 2 cups of blackberries. I added an additional TBSP of sugar to compensate for the tartness of the blackberries, and I also added 1 cup of pecans instead of 1/2 cup. I had a couple of bites and it was very good!
