Apple Crisp is a long time favorite of my family.
Here's the recipe:
The recipe itself probably came from the weekly home town newspaper back in the 80s. You can see how much I've used it from the frayed edges and stains!
I hate my handwriting, so I typed some recipes onto cards. Apparently, I didn't have enough to do! I don't even remember whose typewriter or where it was. This was before there was a computer and printer in every home.
Looking at the recipe itself, I always wondered how do you sprinkle 1 teaspoon of lemon juice on 4 cups of apples? If anyone knows, please share.
Any kind of apples work, some better than others but I usually use what I have on hand that are otherwise beginning to be ignored. I've even used applesauce.
The topping can be dry.
That's why you serve it with ice cream :)
4 c apples
1 t lemon juice
1/3 c flour
1 c oats
1/2 c brown sugar
1/2 t salt
1 t cinnamon
1/2 c melted butter
Preheat oven to 375. Place apples in greased pan. Sprinkle with lemon juice (I usually skip this). Combine dry ingredients in a bowl. Add butter and mix together. Sprinkle mixture over apples. Bake at 375 for 25-30 minutes.
