My sister calls it Apple Crisp. My mother calls it Apple Brown Betty. And I’m sure there are at least 3 other names for it. But whatever you call it, this desert is quick and easy to make and absolutely delicious. And what with it being apple picking season, i couldn’t resist…
6-10 Crisp Apples (I find the ones that are a bit tart work best)
1 Cup Flour
1 Cup Brown Sugar
1 Cup Rolled Oats
1 Cup Earth Balance or other Vegan Butter
1 Tablespoon Cinnamon
1-2 Teaspoons Lemon Juice
Preheat oven to 375°F.
Peel Core and Slice Apples. Toss in lemon juice and lay in a lightly buttered baking dish.
In a mixing bowl, combine remaining ingredients with a pastry cutter (two butter knives work just as well) until the mix is the consistency of a soft granola.
Cover apples completely with oat mixture and bake for 25 to 45 minutes, depending on the the thickness of the apple slices.
Remove from oven when the apples are tender but not mushy and the crumble is golden brown, and let sit at least 5 minutes.
Serve warm with a scoop of your favourite vegan Vanilla Ice Cream (Mine is Coconut Bliss) and Enjoy!
