Apple Crisp


  • 6 large apples, peeled and cored
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-1/4 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1-1/4 cups brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) cold butter


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Chop up the apples into cubes (roughly 1 inch) and place in a 9-by-13-inch baking dish.
  3. Sprinkle the apples with lemon juice and vanilla extract, toss to coat, then evenly spread into the bottom of the pan.
  4. In a large bowl, combine the oats, brown sugar and cinnamon.
  5. Using a pastry blender, cut in the butter until the oat mixture is crumbly (use your fingers if necessary).
  6. Sprinkle the oat mixture evenly over the top of the apples.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven for about 45 to 50 minutes, or until the apples are tender and the top is browned and looks crunchy.
  8. Remove from oven and allow to sit for about 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
  9. Serve warm with ice cream or whipped topping, or both.
