Apple Crisp Dessert


  • 8 cups raw apples (peeled and sliced)
  • 1 lemon juiced (about 4 tsp)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 11/2 sticks margarine or butter (cut into 1 inch pieces)
  • 11/2 cup flour
  • 1 cup oatmeal
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut (optional)
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)


Pre-heat oven to 350°. Lay sliced apples in a 9×13 baking pan. Toss with lemon juice. Mix sugar and cinnamon together and then sprinkle over the apples. In a large bowl combine the flour and butter with a pastry mixer. Then add in oatmeal and brown sugar and crumble over the apples. Bake for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and top with nuts and coconut (if desired). Bake an additional 10 minutes. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream or cool whip.

    Sounds delicious! Can’t wait to try it. You’ve listed oatmeal twice as an ingredient. Typo?

    Looks yummy. Might have to see if I can revamp without the milk. (dairy allergies) Have you tried it without the evaporated milk?

    How much is a “cube” of butter? Is that a TBSP of butter? This looks fantastic…my DH loves apple crisp, I’m thinking I may have to do this for his birthday!
