Peanut Butter Apple Crisp

We had the pleasure of going apple picking with our three grandsons on a perfect fall day! What fun!!! We got to ride on a hay wagon pulled by a John Deere, which all three of my them just loved. We picked golden delicious and Rome apples using those interesting apple pickers on a long pole. While walking from tree to tree I came upon a stand of milkweed that we had to stop and examine.

After picking all those apples I just had to make some apple crisp. I adapted a recipe from The More-With-Less Cookbook and just love the addition of peanut butter. It really adds a richness to the crisp topping. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

6 C. peeled and sliced apples (5-6 medium apples)
2 T. flour
1/2 C. sugar
1 t. cinnamon
1/4 t. salt
2 T. water
3/4 C. rolled oats
1/4 t. salt
3 T. butter
3 T. peanut butter
1/3 C. + 3 T. packed brown sugar

1. Grease a large casserole dish and preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Combine the apples, flour, sugar, cinnamon, 1/4 t. salt, and water in a large bowl. Place in the greased casserole dish.
3. Cut together with a pastry blender (or your fingers) the rolled oats, 1/4 t. salt, butter, peanut butter, and brown sugar until crumbly. Sprinkle over the top of the apple mixture.
4. Bake for 45-50 minutes until the crisp is simmering around the edges and the apples are tender when pierced with a fork.
Serves 10-12

    Hi Sue,

    I love your fabulous food! Particularly enjoyed Peanut Butter Apple Crisp the last time I was visiting Independence. I am writing to ask your opinion on substituting almond butter for peanut butter, given my food allergies. I also have Sun Butter, (made from sunflower seeds) as another possibility. Thanks for all you do to make these great recipes accessible for those of us with food allergies!

      I think almond butter would work great it this recipe. I may have to try it myself. I’ve never had sun butter so if you try that, let me know how it turns out!
