Dairy-Free Apple Crisp is one of my Mother's recipes. The apples are sliced thinly and placed in the bottom of a baking dish or pie plate, topped with an oatmeal and sugar mixture then baked. Scrumptious!
Mom's recipe uses a round 8-inch baking dish. I use my Pampered Chef deep dish pie plate instead. It is as deep as my round 8-inch baking dish. I'm sure it would work fine in an 8-inch square casserole dish, too.
Dairy-Free Apple Crisp is similar to an Apple Brown Betty. A Brown Betty is an American dessert that is fruit topped with sweetened crumbs then baked. The topping for this dessert is sweetened oatmeal. The oatmeal brings a nice crunch to this dessert. Dairy-Free Apple Crisp would make a nice breakfast treat, too!
Mom's original recipe used butter. I replaced the butter with coconut oil so that it would be a dairy-free dessert. If you aren't concerned with being dairy-free, then you can replace the coconut oil with butter or margarine, using the same quantity.
I hope you enjoy!
