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.
