(recipe, Betty Crocker Editors)

primary-image, l


    1. 4 medium tart cooking apples, sliced (4 cups)
    2. ¾ cup packed brown sugar
    3. ½ cup all-purpose flour (see Note)
    4. ½ cup quick-cooking or old-fashioned oats
    5. ⅓ cup butter, softened
    6. ¾ tsp. ground cinnamon
    7. ¾ tsp. ground nutmeg
    1. Whipped cream or vanilla ice cream


    1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Grease the bottom and sides of an 8-by-8-inch square baking pan.
    2. Spread the sliced apples in the pan. Mix the remaining crisp ingredients together and sprinkle the mixture evenly over the apples.
    3. Bake the crisp for about 30 minutes or until the topping is golden brown and the apples are tender when pierced with a fork.
    4. Serve warm with whipped cream or ice cream.


    Self-rising flour can be used. Culinate editor's notes: Peeling the apples before slicing them results in a softer, easier-to-eat crisp. A large handful of finely chopped walnuts, plus a handful of raisins, add flavor, crunch, and chew to the topping.
