Apple Ring Crisp

Colleen Sowa


My grandchildren helped me come up with this easy and fun recipe!

It is a New spin on an Old recipe!

I use dark brown sugar (sometimes I add molasses for stronger old fashioned flavor), but you can use light brown sugar as well.

We love using Rodelle Vanilla products, so I mentioned them in the recipe.

Enjoy yourself in the kitchen...

How to Make Apple Ring Crisp


  • 1Mix together all the Oatmeal Mixture ingredients (I like using my hands rather than a spoon).
  • 2Wash and dry apples. Slice about 1/2 inch thick (as you like, slices don't need to be perfect).

    *** I don't peel the apples, you can if you want to.
    *** I use a cannoli tube to remove center cores (a metal cookie or biscuit cutter works too).
  • 3Put about half of the Oatmeal Mixture on the bottom of a large jelly roll pan (12 x 20)

    Dot the top of Oatmeal layer with butter.

    Place apple slices on top of the oatmeal layer.

    *** If you don't have the large pan, use two smaller pans.
  • 4Sprinkle the apples with Rodelle Cinnamon Sugar.
  • 5Put pecans in center of each apple ring.
  • 6Cover apple ring layer with another layer of the Oatmeal Mixture. Dot the top with Butter.

    Bake at 350 degree oven for about 20 minutes (until apples are tender and topping is crisp).
  • 7Serve warm or cold.

    Top with ice cream or whipped cream.

    Sprinkle Rodelle Cinnamon Sugar or Vanilla Sugar on top of ice cream or whipped cream.
  • 8I hope you all enjoy cooking with your children or grandchildren...

    This is my 6 year old grandson Paxton... he runs to get his Chef's hat and apron every time we cook!

    *** I wonder if Just A Pinch has a Children's set?
