Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Butter a 9x13-inch baking dish.

  • Spread apple slices into prepared baking pan. Dot with 1 tablespoon butter pieces and sprinkle with lemon juice. Mix flour, rolled oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt together in a bowl. Cut butter into oat mixture until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs; spread over apples.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until topping is browned and apples are soft and tender, about 30 minutes.

Cook's Note:

I use Granny Smith or Cortland apples. Bottled lemon juice is fine.

No wonder this is a family favorite Sudie B - this is an excellent apple crisp that in my mind is just right as is. No tweaking necessary - that means no changes at all. I particularly like the "butterscotchy" flavor the brown sugar and butter contribute, and if you use a sweet apple, as I did, the lemon juice is necessary to tame that down a bit. I couldn't be more pleased to give this a 5-star rating. Read More

Came out soggy. Used 4 Granny Smith apples. Should've used Gala. Probably won't make again. Read More

I LOVE apple crisp and this was no exception! It quickly became a "family favorite" in this house. It's staightforward recipe that produces a delicious result with the perfect balance of apples to topping. I served this warm with vanilla ice cream and whipped topping - YUM! Thank for a great recipe Sudie B! Read More

This recipe results in a perfect, classic apple crisp. Nothing needs to be "tweaked", added, subtracted or substituted. I took this apple crisp to a senior's centre party at which I volunteered, and it disappeared within minutes. Anyone who wanted second was disappointed. Lovely recipe. Sudie. Thanks. Read More

Made this for Recipe Group. I halved the recipe and made an 8x8 pan. Very easy simple to put together with an excellent crispy crunchy topping. Best eaten warm the same day or the next. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

This is delicious as is - no changes needed. Next time I'll add some chopped walnuts to the topping for a little extra crunch but otherwise a definite keeper. Read More

Delicious! It was a little too salty for my taste so I would only use 1/2 tsp salt the next time. I used room temperature butter which made my topping clump instead of crumble! But all in all it was very good and I would definitely make it again!! Read More

Recipe Group Selection: 27 September 2014 I made a 3-serving size of this for my husband. He enjoyed it best warmed with a big helping of homemade whipped topping. It is very quick to put together with ingredients I usually have on hand. Read More
