Classic Apple Crisp Recipe

By Sinea Pies

Ever wonder where recipes first came from? Somebody had to think them up...but who? Apple Crisp is one of my favorite special dessert recipes -- and this one is particularly good --which got me to wondering about its origins. 

Though the creator appears to be unknown, the first "siting" of an apple crisp recipe is 1924 when it was included in a cookbook called Everybody's Cook Book: A Comprehensive Manual of Home Cookery, by Isabel Ely Lord. It was also included in a newspaper article, again in 1924. Prior to that, nobody knows. That it is a superb dessert creation, everybody knows! It's a big favorite.

Apple Crisp Recipe
Preheat oven to 400°
Bake 40-60 minutes

Peel and slice approximately 5 cups apples
1 tsp cinnamon
½ cup butter
¾ cup brown sugar
¾ cup flour

Place apple slices in pan.
Mix other ingredients and crumble on top
Bake until bubbling

This absolutely delicious dessert is best served warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. You may want to double it, especially the topping. Be prepared, it won't last long! Just tonight our family went through almost a whole pan--it was doubled.
