We have an abundance of apples right now since we went apple picking over the weekend. During this time of the year I usually make apple crisp and not apple pie, for one it’s a lot easier to make and second it’s what my family loves.


I did not make this myself this time since I am still recovering from a medical procedure I had early this Fall. My sister made this apple crisp and I just helped her out.

To make, start by peeling your apples. Then core and slice it into wedges. Sprinkle some lemon juice, lemon zest, sugar and cinnamon over the apples and mix everything to combine.


Prepare your topping by mixing 1 cup oatmeal, 1 1/2 cup flour, 3/4 cup brown and white sugar, 2 sticks of unsalted butter and 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt. Use a mixer or a pastry blender to mix everything together until it is the size of peas.


Place your apples in a buttered deep dish pan and cover it with your topping. Bake in a 350F oven for about an hour until it’s brown and bubbly.

Serve warm and top with vanilla ice cream.
