Apple Crisp

Apple Crisp

Apples, oats, cinnamon and brown sugar--a terrific combination!


8 to 10 servings


  • 5 medium apples
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup packed and divided Domino® Light Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg (optional)
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) cold unsalted butter
  • 1 1/2 cups oats, quick cooking


Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a 9-inch square baking dish with nonstick cooking spray; set aside.

Rinse and cut apples in half, lengthwise. Remove any stems and cut out center core of apple that contains the seeds. Do not peel.

Place apples cut side down; then use a sharp knife to cut the apple into 1/8-inch slices.

Combine sliced apples, cinnamon, 1/4 cup of brown sugar, 1 tablespoon of flour, and nutmeg, if using, in a large mixing bowl; mix well.

Pour apple mixture into prepared baking dish; spread evenly.

Dice the butter into small cubes using sharp knife. Combine oats, remaining flour, brown sugar and butter in a medium mixing bowl; mix with hands until crumbly. Spread oat and flour mixture over apple mixture.

Bake uncovered on middle rack of oven for 40 minutes, or until top is lightly browned or bubbly.

Let sit for 15 to 20 minutes before serving.
