Mama’s Best Apple Crisp
Nothing says fall in New England more than warm apple crisp topped with a scoop of melty vanilla bean ice cream. This recipe for Mama’s Best Apple Crisp is my favorite apple crisp recipe.
This recipe is extra special because crumbs and topping are throughout the crisp, not just on top. Oatmeal, butter, brown sugar too.
A mixture of vanilla and orange juice is poured directly over the apples before the topping is sprinkled on, creating a wonderfully flavored apple filling that tastes sweet, but not citrusy like you might think.
You’ll want to use tart, firm apples for this recipe. I used Macintosh apples because that’s what we picked. Cortland and Granny Smith also work well. Or your favorite cooking apple.
Make this recipe in a pie plate or skillet and it serves six. Or double and make in a 9 X 13″ pan to serve more. Either way, Mama’s Best Apple Crisp is hands down the best apple crisp I’ve ever tasted. Hope you love it too!
