  • 8 cups of peeled cored and sliced apples or pears. I like half apples, half pears. Or if only apples: Use different varieties of apples to wake up the flavors.
  • 1 TBSP lemon juice
  • 3/4 c sugar some people use more, and I would if your apples are TART! then use one cup or a bit more.
  • 1/3 C flour
  • tsp cinnamon use more if you love cinnamon, I just LIKE it
  • Pinch of salt
  • Combine in a large mixing bowl stir until evenly mixed. Set aside and make topping.

Crumble Topping:

  • In a large bowl combine until crumbly and set aside:
  • 1 1/2 C flour
  • 1 C sugar
  • 3/4  C instant oats or regular rolled oats
  • 2 sticks of salted butter
  • pinch of salt


  • Pour combined filling into greased 9x13 inch pan, sprinkle crumble topping over evenly, bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 70 minutes. (Or when juices around edges around edges of crisp are slowly bubbling.)
