Gram’s Apple Crisp
3 large granny smith apples, peeled and sliced thinly
1 cup white sugar
about 1 Tablespoon ground cinnamon
3/4 cups brown sugar
3/4 cups flour (I used 1/4 cup whole wheat, 1/2 cup all-purpose)
3/4 cups oats
1/3 cup butter, melted
about 1/2 cup chopped nuts, like pecans, walnuts, or almonds (optional)
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
- Place (peeled and thinly sliced) apples, white sugar, and ground cinnamon in a large bowl and thoroughly mix together until apples are completely coated. Spread coated apples in a layer on the bottom of a 8×8 or 9×9 square baking dish.
- In a separate bowl, combine brown sugar, oats, flour, and melted butter until combined. Cover apples with oat mixture, completely. Use all of this topping! It may seem like a lot, but trust me, it’s delicious. Top with nuts, if desired.
- Bake in preheated oven for 45-50 minutes.
