This apple crisp with oatmeal is a real game changer. With vanilla ice cream on top and some easy ingredients, you’ll have this ready in no time.
Not only does this have the approval of everyone, but they are also helping me make the apple crisp.
I made the Apple Pomegranate Crisp last month, but I absolutely have to share this one. My mother-in-law made it while we were visiting over Christmas and we all just loved it. So here it is, an apple crisp recipe unlike any I’ve ever had. Again, I halved the recipe because I’m still using the @%$^&# toaster oven, but the original called for a 9 X 13-inch baking dish. Now THAT’S a lot of apple crisp!
I think it’s due to the cornstarch mixture because everything else is practically the same. I did make a few minor adjustments to the recipe my mother-in-law gave me, but it was the addition of the cinnamon and lemon juice which I’ve used in other recipes.
So it couldn’t have been that. I don’t know, this was just really, really good apple crisp. Especially with the addition of some vanilla bean ice cream on top. Oh, yummy, yum, YUM!! This is one of my absolute favorite desserts and this one was no exception. Go out and buy those apples. Make this. Seriously. And enjoy it!
