  • Photo

Setting: My kitchen.

Time: Not even 30 seconds ago.

Me: Iíve got apple crisp!

Scott: You saved the best for last?

Yes, we are nearing the end of The 2012 Apple Challenge.


Apple crisp is my husbandís favorite dessert (after pumpkin pie), so it seemed fitting to make it for him towards the end of the challenge as a thank you for putting up with all apple dishes and running out to buy me a gala apple when all I had on hand was golden delicious.

Heís a keeper.


  • 4 medium tart cooking apples, sliced (4 cups)
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup quick-cooking or old-fashioned oats
  • 1/3 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Heat oven to 375ļF. Grease bottom and sides of 8-inch square pan with shortening.

Spread apples in pan. In medium bowl, stir remaining ingredients except cream until well mixed; sprinkle over apples.

Bake about 30 minutes or until topping is golden brown and apples are tender when pierced with a fork. Serve warm with cream.
