Baked Apple with Crisp Topping, from the

We whipped this recipe up the weekend before Thanksgiving and it was incredibly tasty and easy to make. Dexter did an amazing job with it. It was definitely a hit on Thanksgiving but we made enough to bring leftovers to our family dinner, and they were devoured there. We’ve made them several times since the first discovery of their deliciousness.


  • 2 apples (recommended: Fuji)
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup strawberry jam, jelly or preserves
  • 2 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons butter, cold and diced
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup oats, uncooked
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Pinch salt


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Cut each apple in half along its equator. Using a melon baller, cut out each side of the core, creating a rounded hole. Rub exposed apple flesh with lemon juice. Place 1 tablespoon of jam into each hole. For the topping: in a small bowl mix together flour, butter, brown sugar, oats, cinnamon and salt. Press this mixture on the top of each apple, covering jam. Place in a baking dish filled with about a 1/4-inch of water. Bake until top is golden brown and apple is tender, about 35 to 40 minutes.,,FOOD_9936_164270,00.html

    These were incredible! I couldn’t get enough of them! They’re the perfect fall comfort food, but I would never turn them down at any other time of year.
