Seasonal Fruit Baked Into An Easy Apple Crisp

Growing up we used to pick apples in the woods, but the pickins' were kind of slim. The apples were usually very small and super tart. I took my son apple picking at an orchard just miles from my home with much better results.

With this in mind, I'm thinking Apple Crisp is a perfect fall dessert. For those of you concerned about where your food comes from and being a "locavore," the local orchards and farmers market have plenty of apples right now!

Really Easy Apple Crisp

I used a super simple recipe because I didn't have a lot of time or ingredients on hand, but I can see myself adding nuts to this dish or perhaps some fresh berries next time.


  • 5-6 apples
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup uncooked oatmeal
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • white sugar


  1. Slice apples in baking dish (peeled or unpeeled).
  2. Sprinkle cinnamon and white sugar over apples.
  3. Mix remaining ingredients with a fork and sprinkle on apples.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes.
