Ingredients For Apple Crisp


3 large fresh apples

2 T vegtable or olive oil

3 T apple juice concentrate, frozen concentrate, thawed


1 1/2 c oats, quick oats are best

1/2 c flour, whole wheat or white

1/4 c raw cane sugar or other sugar

1/2 t cinnamon

1/2 t salt

2 T vegetable or olive oil

2 T apple juice concentrate


Pre-heat the oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease well a 9 inch pie, cake pan or square baking dish. In a mixing bowl combine the ingredients for the topping and stir well. Then peel the 3 apples, quarter them and take out the core of seeds. Slice them (from apple top to bottom) thinly and put in a bowl and add the oil and apple juice concentrate and toss.

Take the coated apple slices and place them around the outside of the pan. Lay the slices, one slice thick, all across the bottom of the oiled pan. When one layer has been laid, repeat the process on top of the first layer until all the apple slices are in the pan. Drip any excess oil and juice left in the bowl over the top of the apples.

When the apples are laid evenly in the pan, sprinkle all of the topping over the top and place the filled pan in the pre-heated oven. Bake for 40 min at 300 degrees Fahrenheit and then turn the temperature down to 250 degrees. Bake at 250 degrees for 20 more minutes or until golden brown on top.

Pull the hot crisp out of the oven and place the pan on a cooling rack or doubled towel on the counter to cool.

Serve while warm, or finish cooling, cover, and place in the refrigerator until it is desired.
