Family Favorite: Apple Crisp

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 :)

Apple Crisp

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.


  1. What a great recipe! Looks wonderful!

    I have to say that I love seeing old & timeworn recipe cards like yours.
