Tasty Apple Crisp Recipe with Oats

Similar to our strawberry and rhubarb crisp recipe, this tasty dessert is a family favorite. The ingredients are almost indentical except we use half the amount of granulated sugar for the thick apple filling. But this of course can be adjusted depending on the sweetness or tartness of the fresh chopped apples.

Strawberry and Rhubarb Crisp

For the thick sauce filling, be sure to add the cornstarch to cold water before heating on the stove top to ensure the cornstarch blends in smoothly.
