Do you happen to have the old recipe for apple crisp? Not one that calls for oats.
I don't know if I have "the" old recipe for apple crisp without oats - there were and there are dozens of them, and I have no idea which one you might be referring to as "the" recipe. However, I do have SOME recipes for apple crisp without oats. See below.
6 apples, peeled and sliced
1/2 c. light brown sugar, firmly packed
1 tbsp. cinnamon
1 1/2 c. graham cracker crumbs
3 tbsp. butter, melted
Put layer of apples, then sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon, mixed together.
Repeat until all is used. Sprinkle with graham cracker crumbs, then with the
melted butter. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
1/2 cup (1 stick) cold butter
1 cup sugar
1/8 tsp. salt
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
4 cups apples, sliced
1 tbsp. water
1/2 tsp. cinnamon (or to taste)
1/4 tsp. ground ginger or freshly grated (optional)
Cooks Tip: If your apples need a lift, sprinkle lightly with a few drops of
fresh lemon juice, vanilla, or Calvados - but be careful not to overdo!
Preheat oven to 375°F.
Wash, peel and core apples.
Cut cold butter into chunks. Using a pastry blender, work butter, sugar, salt and
flour together until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
Place apples into a buttered baking dish. Add water, cinnamon and ginger (optional).
Cover with flour mixture.
Bake in a preheated 375°F oven just until apples are tender; about 1 hour.
