Apple Crisp

We had another family dinner this past Saturday night and since we had yet to make a trip to the grocery I had to come up with something that included ingredients that were currently awaiting use in my pantry. I stumbled across this one and I am so glad I gave it a chance. You will see the few changes I made listed next to the ingredients.

Apple Crisp I
Compliments of

  • 3 1/2 pounds apples - peeled, cored and sliced ( used 6 granny smith apples)
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 packets instant maple and brown sugar oatmeal ( I only used 2 and used what I had on hand that had cinnamon in it, cinnamon roll and cinnamon and spice)
  • 1 pinch salt ( I omitted)
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts ( I used about a 1/4 cup of pecans, it was all I had)
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Place apples in a 9x13 inch baking dish. In a bowl, cream together butter and sugar. Stir in flour, instant oatmeal and salt. Fold in walnuts. Sprinkle oatmeal mixture evenly over apples. Drizzle with maple syrup.
  3. Bake in preheated oven 50 to 70 minutes, until apples are tender and topping is golden.
This was really good and I wish we would have had some vanilla ice-cream to go along with it. It would have also been much better with more pecans...I forgot just how good pecans are in things. This is definitely one to try out during your fall festivities, I can see it now, getting fresh apples from your local orchard and then sitting around a nice campfire as you eat this with a nice warm mug of apple cider. Can you tell fall is my absolute favorite time of year??
