Blue Ribbon Recipe

Sometimes the most simple recipes are the best... and that's the case with this apple crisp. Warm, tender apples and a crunchy, buttery, cinnamon sugar crumble, what's not to love? Serve this no oats apple crisp with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and you have the perfect fall dessert.

How To Make nana's apple crisp

  • Buttered baking dish on the stove.
    Heat oven to 350 and butter a baking dish. (For this recipe I stick to the butter but you can use something else to grease pan if you prefer.)
  • Sliced apples in the baking dish.
    Put apples in dish and spread out. Sprinkle apples with water.
  • Flour, sugar, cinnamon, and salt turned into a crumble.
    Put flour, sugar, cinnamon, and salt in a bowl. Add butter to this with your fingers rubbing till it all resembles a coarse crumby mixture.

    Spread this over the apples in the dish.
  • Crumble baking in the oven.
    Bake for about 30 minutes. Just until the crust is browned nicely.
