Best NY Apple-Crisp Ever (Secret Recipe)

Wondering what to do with all those great apples you picked this season?

The following "secret" family recipe was submitted by Lilly R.:


  • 10 Cups, or 12-13 medium sized New York Apples. A blend of Cortlands and Macs works best, but any all-pupose apples will do the trick.

  • 1 cup white sugar

  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1/4 cup water

  • 1 cup rolled oats

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 cup brown sugar (packed)

  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter (melted)

1. Preheat oven to 350°F

2. Peel and core 10 cups of apples.

A half & half blend of Cortlands and Macs is best, but if you're in a pinch, a bag of everyday apples will do the trick.

If you don't have a fancy-schmancy peeler/corer, you can peel them with a potato-peeler or knife, core them and slice about as thin as a half-deck of cards.
