With its hearty ingredients and quick prep time, this warm apple crisp makes a smart dessert for any fall night. It reminds me of the recipe my grandmother would serve after our big family seafood dinners. It's absolutely wonderful topped with ice cream. —Julie Peterson, Crofton, Maryland

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon (or to taste)
  • 5 tablespoons cold butter, cubed


  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Stir together apples and 1/4 cup brown sugar. In another bowl, combine cornbread mix, oats, cinnamon and remaining brown sugar. Cut in butter until crumbly.
