Betty’s Apple Crisp

A few nights ago I decided to try out the tried-and-true Betty Crocker recipe for apple crisp and was so surprised to realize how unbelievably simple it is!

I made a little more involved apple crisp about a month ago, but really, how “involved” can apple crisp really get?  Isn’t it all about the simplicity of ingredients and the flavors of the apples shining through?  Regardless, I can’t find the first recipe, which I actually liked better, though D.Jones preferred Betty’s.  It did turn out well, but a tad sweet for my taste, which may, in part, have been because I used Honeycrisps, which are pretty sweet themselves.  Anyhoo…here it is.

Betty Crocker’s Apple Crisp

4 medium tart cooking apples, sliced (4 cups)
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup Gold Medal® all-purpose flour
1/2 cup quick-cooking or old-fashioned oats
1/3 cup butter or margarine, softened
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  Cream or Ice cream, if desired

Heat oven to 375 degrees.  Butter 8-inch square pan.  Spread apples in pan.   In separate mixing bowl, combine all ingredients except cream.  Sprinkle over apples.  Bake 30 minutes or until topping is browned and apples are tender.  Top with ice cream or cream if desired.

See.  Super simple!


I do my apple crisp “straight-up” as pictured, but my husband topped his with Ben & Jerry’s Cake Batter ice cream, which I must admit, was pretty darn fabulous~
