If you saw my Wordless Wednesday yesterday then you know that I’ve got a ton of fabulous apples from my apple tree that work great for baking. While they are still good to eat, they are a bit on the tart side which is why I knew they’d still be perfect for this “Just Like Mom’s Apple Crisp” from Kraft Foods which calls for Granny Smith.
I love really any apple crisp but what sets this recipe apart for me is the inclusion of graham crackers in the topping. The added flavor and texture gives that little something extra. I simply can’t get enough of this amazing apple crisp. Obviously I’m not the only one since it gets 5 out of 5 stars with 140 reviews on Kraft. I do hope you try it and come back and tell me just how much you loved it as well!
1/2 cup old-fashioned or quick-cooking oats
3 honey graham crackers, finely crushed
1/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/3 cup flour
1/4 cup walnut pieces
1/3 cup butter or margarine, melted (please say you’ll use butter!)
1 tsp. cinnamon, divided
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons flour
6 cups peeled Granny Smith or other tart apple variety apple slices (about 5 medium apples)
Crush graham crackers and mix with oats, 1/3 cup each of the brown sugar and flour, the walnuts, butter and 1/2 tsp. of the cinnamon until well blended then set aside.
