Mom’s Apple Crisp
October, in Canada, is a time to be thankful. We just celebrated Thanksgiving and I must say that I am thankful for so many things. I am thankful for my husband, my children, my dad, that I’m healthy, and I am thankful for my mom’s apple crisp.
Thinking back, I cannot remember a fall where my mom did not make her apple crisp. It seemed to be a staple around Thanksgiving and it quickly became a favourite for my husband as well. My mom knew that when we arrived for Thanksgiving a warm apple crisp must be waiting in the kitchen. She never missed one.
For the past few years, I have been attempting to make her apple crisp and I must say, I have done well at duplicating it. It is certainly husband approved. It is one of those recipes that fills the kitchen with yummy fall goodness and smells. Who needs a Bath and Body Works candle when apple crisp is in the oven.
Mom’s Apple Crisp:
- 4 cups of apples peeled and sliced thin
- 1 Tbsp lemon juice
- 1/3 cup flour
- 1 cup oats
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/3 cup melted butter or margarine
Put apples in a greased baking dish and sprinke with lemon juice. Combine all dry ingredients. Add the melted butter/margerine and mix into a crumb mixture. Sprinkle the crumb mixture over the apples. Bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes.
If you are looking for a fall dessert recipe that your family will devour, look no further. This recipe is not only fast to prepare and bake, but healthy and delicious.
Each time I prepare and make it for my family, so many wonderful memories of my mom fill my soul. With a smile on my face and my tummy filled with yummy goodness, I love finding ways to honour my mom and keep her legacy alive.
