Apple Crisp

Apple desserts are among my favorites.  There is something about apples cooked in brown sugar and cinnamon that is crazy good . . . and the smell from the oven while it is baking is intoxicating!

This recipe comes from Taste of Home, one of my favorite food websites.

    • 1 cup all-purpose flour
    • 3/4 cup rolled oats
    • 1 cup packed brown sugar
    • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 1/2 cup butter, softened
    • 4 cups chopped peeled apples
    • 1 cup sugar
    • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
    • 1 cup water
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • Vanilla ice cream, optional


Preheat oven to 350°. 

In a large bowl, combine first four ingredients. 

Cut in butter until crumbly. 

Press half into a greased 2-1/2-qt. baking dish or a 9-in.-square baking pan. 

Cover with apples.

In a small saucepan, combine the sugar, cornstarch, water and vanilla. 

Bring to a boil; cook and stir 2 minutes or until thick and clear. 

Pour over apples. 

Sprinkle with remaining crumb mixture.
Bake 60-65 minutes or until apples are tender. 

Serve warm, with ice cream if desired. 

Yield: 8 servings.
