1 8-inch crisp


  • 1 serving cooking spray

  • 4 medium unpeeled apples, cored and thinly sliced

  • ¼ cup white sugar

  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice

  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Lightly coat an 8- or 9-inch baking pan with cooking spray.

  2. Mix together apples, sugar, 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour, lemon juice, and cinnamon in a medium bowl. Pour into the prepared baking pan.
