Oh my…can you smell that? It smells amazing in here. Apples, brown sugar, cinnamon and some butter. Oh, my you should be here. All those flavors mingling together, wrapping themselves around the apples. Oatmeal crispy crumble sprinkled all over the top absorbing the steam and flavor from those cinnamon apples.
Apples. So many to choose from. Love the apples that come from the local orchards…beautifully imperfect. They are not as big and they aren’t shiny with wax like the ones in the grocery store. They offer so much more though. The Honeycrisp apples I used were not large and they didn’t have any shiny wax on them, but they were slightly sweet and very crisp. I held them up and breathed them in, pure apple goodness.
Oops..that’s the timer. Gotta go. Get the crisp out of the oven. I like mine warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream melting down into the crisp oat topping and over the warm soft apples. You need to give this a try, you won’t be sorry.
- 12-16 peeled and sliced apples
- 6 Tablespoons granulated sugar
- 6 Tablespoons brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 2 1/2 cups oatmeal
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 cup softened butter
- Peel and slice apples. Place apples in a 9x13 baking dish.Mix sugar s and cinnamon. Sprinkle on top of apples, then mix to coat the apples and set aside.
- In mixing bowl place the oatmeal,flour, brown sugar, cinnamon and mix the dry ingredients together with wooden spoon. Add softened butter to the dry mixture. Mix in butter until it comes together and forms crumbles. I use my hands to do this.Then sprinkle mixture evenly over the apples. Bake at 375 degrees for 45-50 minutes done when topping is golden brown.. Best served warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Store left overs in the fridge. Easily warmed in the microwave.
- I used a mixture of Honeycrisp and Grannysmith apples. I like the sweet combined with the tart. You can use whatever you have on hand. If your apples seem dry you can add a 1/2 cup of water or apple jc or cider. I have only had to do that once in 30 some years.
- I like to serve it warm with vanilla ice cream or cinnamon ice cream if you can find it. It is also good with whipped cream, a drizzle of caramel. You can dress it up anyway you want.
