The leaves are changing colors, there is a crisp feel in the air and we are trading our tank tops for long sleeves. Fall is one of my favorite times of the year. We recently spent the day down at the apple orchard picking the last of the apples off the trees. With so many apples on hand, we began making apple cider, applesauce, apple butter and my favorite, apple crisp. I’m going to share a very delicious recipe with you.
This apple crisp recipe is to die for; the smell of warm cinnamon baking on sweet pieces of apple will warm your soul. When you take your first bite, your taste buds will scream with excitement and you will instantly smile. Every time I make this treat for our guests, it is a crowd pleaser and not a spoonful is left in the dish. This is the recipe you get from the little old lady at church who is like your grandma and makes the treats that go first at every bake sale. Enjoy!
What you’ll need:
10 cups of apples, peeled, cored and sliced
1/2 cup sugar (or sugar alternative)

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup water
1 cup quick-cooking oats
1 cup brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup butter, melted
What you do:
Preheat the oven to 350°. Place the sliced apples in a 9×13″ baking dish. Mix the white sugar, 1 tablespoon of flour and ground cinnamon together, and sprinkle of the apples. Pour water evenly over the apples. Combine the remaining ingredients in a bowl and mix throughly. Crumble evenly over the apple mixture. Bake for 45 minutes. Serve with vanilla ice cream.
