One of my favorite dessert recipes is apple crisps. I’m not a big fan of apple pie or any pie for that matter. I like my desserts simple. If I want something sweet to eat I usually go for a baked or cooked apple recipe such as apple crisp or I’ll make strawberry shortcake.
Apple Crisp Recipe
- 2 or 3 granny smith apples
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon
- 2 tablespoons white sugar
- Half stick of butter
- 1 cup Quaker oats
- Lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 2 scoops of fat-free whip cream or ice cream
I wash and peel the apples removing the stems and the seeds and put them into the 1 quart buttered casserole dish. I squeeze lemon juice all over the apples to keep them from turning brown. I mix the white sugar and the cinnamon together and sprinkle over the apples making sure to coat all the apples with the mixture. Then I mix the cup of brown sugar with the flour, cup of oats, or if you don't have oats you can use the instant Quaker oatmeal packs that come in the variety flavors choosing the flavor you like, (2 packages recommended) and the half stick butter all together until it makes a crumble. I sometimes mix a little bit of cinnamon in the mixture too. I spread the crumble topping evenly over the granny smith apple mixture and place in a hot 350 degree oven and bake for 30 minutes or until it's bubbly or topping is golden brown. After it's done you can take out of the oven and let it cool but I like to sometimes eat it once it comes out of the oven. I take some frozen fat-free whip cream and put two scoops on top of the hot apple crisps and it melts down into the oats. If you prefer you can use vanilla ice cream instead but I am a cool whip type of woman. Voila you have a simple quick tasty dessert that's not so bad for you to eat.
I love granny smith apples. They are the only apples I use for any type of baked dessert involving apples. I like eating them too by their self. I like the tartness of them. Here is my recipe I would love to share with you on how I make my apple crisp dessert. I use this recipe in a 1 quart casserole dish.
