Step by Step Method

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F / 175 degrees C.

Step 2

Place the sliced apples in a 9 x 13-inch pan. Mix the white sugar, lemon juice (refer to Note), 1 tablespoon flour, and ground cinnamon together, and sprinkle over apples. Pour water evenly overall.

Step 3

Combine the oats, 1 cup flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and melted butter together. Crumble evenly over the apple mixture.

Step 4

Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for about 45 minutes.

Note: if your apples contain a larger amount of a more sour type of apples such as granny smith, you may not need to add lemon juice or just use a lesser amount.

I made this Apple Crisp for my cousins Celebration of Life and it was a huge hit! Delicious crumble on top and the apple filling was just perfect. Not too sweet, but just sweet enough. I used tart Macintosh apples fresh off the tree and also the lemon juice. This will be my "Go To" recipe, as it is absolutely the best I have had by far. Thank you for sharing this amazing recipe with us Nat! Linda
