Homemade Apple Goodie


Need a quick and easy apple dessert?  Here is one for you.  Start with tart apples and add your sugar and spices. Then make an oatmeal crumb topping.  Serve plain, with cool whip, milk, or ice cream.

I am able to save time by using my home canned apple pie filling.  Then all I need to do is make the topping.  (I will post this recipe at another date.)  Yet when I have extra apples begging to be used, this is my go-to recipe, and it is a hit.  Every time.


Recently we spent a few days away with friends of ours.  We split up the meals, and Renie served apple goodie for dessert.  Here are the apples mixed with the spices.

Here she’s putting the oatmeal/crumb topping on the apples.

And here is the recipe.
