  • 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)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Toss apples in white sugar and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon.
  3. Place mixture in a large baking dish.
  4. 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.
  5. Spread over the top of the apples.
  6. Bake until the top is golden brown and the sides are bubbly.

Pro Tips:

  • 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.
