Oatmeal Crisp

Apple Filling


  1. With the rack in the middle position, preheat the oven to 190 °C (375 °F). Butter a 20-cm (8-inch) square baking dish and line it with a strip of parchment paper, letting it hang over each side.

Oatmeal Crisp

  1. In a bowl, combine the oats, flour, and brown sugar. Add the butter and maple syrup. Combine with a wooden spoon. Put the bowl aside.

Apple Filling

  1. In a small saucepan, combine the brown sugar, cornstarch, and cinnamon. Add the applesauce and bring to a boil, stirring with a whisk. Place the pan aside.
  2. Spread half the crisp in the baking dish and press lightly. Spread the apple filling on the crisp. Gently sprinkle with the remaining crisp.
  3. Bake for about 45 minutes or until the crisp is golden brown. Serve warm or cold. Cut into squares. Delicious with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
