I got a recipe over 10 years ago for what I thought was the best apple crisp ever. WRONG! I took that recipe and put it with my neighbors recipe who is about 85. I have already made three this week and its only thursday. It disappears that quickThe recipe IMHO is the best ever. I just thought I would share with all my friends....
Best Ever Apple Crisp
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Pan size is 9 x 13.
18 Apples - peeled, coared and sliced. Place apples in cake pan.
1/2 cup Sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons Siagon Cinnamon - if you only have regular, then use 2 teaspoons regular cinnamon
1 teaspoon Nutmeg
Sprinkle this over apples. Drizzle with: 1/2 cup Water
1 1/2 cup Quick Cooking Oatmeal
1 1/2 cups Brown Sugar
1 1/2 cups Flour
Mix all this together. Cut in: 1 cup cold butter ( if you have a food processor - pulse it until the crum mixture if like peas size). Sprinkle over apples. Bake at 375 degrees for 50 minutes.
This sounds very good. A trip to the apple orchard is coming this weekend and next weekend is a large harvest fest in our area. Apples, pumpkins and mums galore Can't wait to start baking.

Enjoying every Minute.
Hi Deb & Janie. I really think this recipe is great - as I've made it so many times now. I just had to share while I had a few minutes. I am watching 4 kids 3 are in school now, I just have the youngest who is 5 she starts pre-school next week. YIPPEE! I forgot how silence is golden....
Would it be okay to use old-fashioned oats? Sounds delightful!!!
sounds great but 18 apples fill my pan to overrunning
This sure sounds good. I made peach cobbler this week using the last of our peaches. I was thinking apple crisp or cobbler would be good next.
Thanks for sharing your tried and true recipe.
Piggy, thank you for sharing!!! I can not wait to try it.

I personally don't know about using the other oats. From different recipes I've seen they are interchangable. But I am not 100% sure.
The apple count is righ. The apple do cook down and also depends on the size of the apples. The pan should be at least 3/4 full just of apples and to the top or just about with the filling.
Gosh neighbors are coming out of the wood work for me to make this for them. One lady has her kids and grandkids coming, she just doesn't have enough time to make everything on short notice - so of course I'll help her. I know the kids I watch will see and smell it and say so sweetly is that for us - so I'll have to make one for their family. They don't bake (unless it's a cake out of a box).....
I made this and it is DELICIOUS!
I halved it, used 9 Granny Smiths (3 pounds), and a 9x9 baking dish.
Instead of just 1/4 cup water to drizzle over (remember, I halved the recipe), I mixed 1 T. water and 2 T boiled cider (comes in a bottle, I get it from King Arthur, but have seen it in some stores). Delicious idea!
You will be happy if you make this...I am certain of it!
