Revenge of the Crisp

Revenge may be a dish best served cold, but this apple crisp is best enjoyed warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Revenge of the Crisp


  • 5 apples (I recommend Cortlands, but any variety you like will do)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ginger
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup oatmeal
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup butter

Butter a baking dish

Core, peel, and dice the apples

Toss the apple pieces with the spices and salt, then place in the dish

Combine the flour, oatmeal, and sugar; cut the butter into the mixture until it forms fine crumbs

Spread the butter crumb mixture over the apples

Bake at 350 F / 175 C for 40 mintues
