Nothing like Hot Apple Crisp on A Cold Winter’s Day

With all this snow falling, I can’t resist to share this delicious recipe.

It’s so easy and quick to make.  I prefer Cortland apples because they don’t turn brown that quickly and they stay true to their shape when baked.

1 – 8” or 9″ pie crust (bottom only)


6 – Cortland apples, peeled, cored, cut in wedges

1 tsp cornstarch

1 tsp sugar



1 ¼ cup oats

¼ cup Graham crumbs

¼  brown sugar

½ cup butter, melted

Preheat oven at 350 degrees F.  Pierce little holes in the pie crust so it doesn’t bubble and protect the edges with foil paper.  Bake crust until golden.

Cut, core and peel apples.  Add the cornstarch and sugar to the apples and mix thoroughly to coat them.  Sprinkle cinnamon to taste.

Melt butter. In a bowl, mix oats, crumbs and sugar together.  Pour the melted butter and mix.

*The delicious smell will tempt you to eat the crisp before putting it on the pie! But don’t! ‘Cause it tastes even better baked!

Place apples in the crust and top it with the crisp.

Bake at 350 degrees F for 30 – 45 minutes or until a dark golden brown.

*Actual picture taken with iphone! Apples in picture are not Cortland apples.

  1. Did you say snow falling???? Huh? Wow, I am actually finding myself feeling a little jealous must be the Christmas spirit getting under my skin. I LOVE apple crisp way more than it loves me, but that won’t stop me from enjoying it. Thanks for sharing the recipe, will be sure to print it out…always looking for a keeper!

    • The falling snow is on my blog! If you look at the picture long enough, it will show up! We are December and we still have no snow!!! The recipe is definitely a keeper because it can be done while you make supper. Just pop it into the oven and voilà it’s ready. Your family will love you for it and beg you to always make some!
