Hot August Nights Apple Crisp

Published on August 17, 2012

I love apples. There I said it. 🙂 I love them plain and raw, and I especially love them in  desserts. Perhaps the easiest and most reliable apple dessert you can have on hand is “Apple Crisp.”  With the perfect balance of butter, sugar, and cinnamon to top any bunch of apples – anytime, especially in the fall but when you find yourself on a hot August night with a bunch of apples that haven’t lived up to your eating-raw expectations and absolutely no chocolate in the house – it’s the perfect solution.

With this recipe, we have found any combination of loved fruit can work.  Peaches, blueberries, raspberries whatever you have on hand will do and make a lovely summer or fall dessert.

4-6 cups apples, sliced
1 Tbs lemon juice
1/4 cup white flour
1/4 cup wheat flour
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tbsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp
1/3 cup
butter, melted
Place apples in a greased 13×9 shallow pan. Sprinkle with lemon juice. In a separate bowl, combine remaining ingredients. Mix until crumbly. Sprinkle over apples. Bake at 375 for 30 minutes until nicely browned.
