Apple Crisp

This is a great recipe to have on hand because it can really be used for any type of fruit crisp.  I generally make fruit crisps when I have a lot of one type of fruit left over and need to use them before they start to go bad.  It’s a great dessert in the fall and kinda just warms the soul, ya know?

Ingredients:

  • 5 cups sliced, peeled cooking apples (pears, peaches, or apricots also work)
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1/3 cup chopped pecans

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375F
  2. Mix together fruit and sugar in a large bowl.  Transfer to a 2 quart square baking dish.
  3. In another bowl, combine the oats, brown sugar, flour, nutmeg and cinnamon.  Add in the butter in small chunks.  Mix together until it resemble coarse crumbs.  Stir in the pecans.
  4. Sprinkle topping over the fruit.
  5. Bake for 30 minutes.
  6. Let cool for 20 minutes. Top with ice cream and serve 🙂

  1. Thank you for your quick response. I need to serve 12.. Should I just double everything and use a 9×13 inch dish, or what size dish would you recommend? Again thanking you in advance. Nita
