- Five or six delicious looking apples– I picked mine from Mayfair Farm in Harrisville, New Hampshire
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 2 tablespoons white sugar
- 3/4 cup old-fashioned oats
- 3/4 cup flour
- 1/2 cup butter (do not soften)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees
- Toss apples in white sugar and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon.
- Place mixture in a large baking dish.
- Mix brown sugar, the other teaspoon of cinnamon, oats, flour and butter. The best way to do this is taking a fork and mashing the butter. It might take a little time, keep working it until it is crumbly.
- Spread over the top of the apples.
- Bake until the top is golden brown and the sides are bubbly.
- Get ice cream or whipped cream to put on top when you serve. I doubled the amount of topping I put on my crisp because I was using a lot of apples and then you never have a bite without topping.
- Put a couple tablespoons of butter on the top when the crisp has about 10 minutes left in the oven– it adds a little flavor to the topping and there’s no such thing as too much butter.
