Apples with Crisp à la Mode

The cool weather is slowly creeping up. Yes, it’s that time of the year:  Apple Picking.

We have a few apple orchards nearby.  Every Fall, we always go to pick our own apples.

They have such a wide variety:  Spartan, Liberty, Lobo, McIntosh, Cortland.

I’m sure I forgot a few…They are all delicious.

This recipe is even easier to make than my Apple Crisp.  A popular Quebec cook had it on his show, Ricardo and Friends.  I used my crisp though because I love the taste of Graham crumbs. Yum!


1 ¼ cup oats

¼ cup Graham crumbs

¼ brown sugar

½ cup butter, melted

6 McIntosh apples*

Preheat oven at 350 degrees F.

To make the crisp, combine the first 4 ingredients in a bowl and set aside.

Wash and core the apples.  You can also use a melon baller to remove the core.

Using a paring knife, carefully spiral down the apple to cut the skin only (see picture) and then cut about ¼ inch off the top. (Someone didn’t follow my instructions!!! Spiral down…!)

Place the apples in a Pyrex pan.  Fill them with the crisp enough to make a little mound on top.

Bake for 35 minutes and serve with vanilla ice cream.

What a treat!

*A real apple connaisseur will know that the apple in the picture is not a McIntosh…I have no clue which of the ones I listed it is.

For this recipe, McIntosh apples have to be used because when cooked, the flesh turns into a sauce-like consistency which make them easier to scoop up. Yum!!!
