 My mother used to have this betty crocker cook book from 1973, it had a pie shape of food photos on the cover. Does any one have this book? She would like to make the apple crisp receipe but cannot remember  how. It would be lovely if someone could share it, Thank you, Corrina.

This book is offered all over on Ebay. Perhaps one of the sellers would share the recipe with you if you asked them?

Hi, Corrina! This is an Apple Crisp recipe from a Betty Crocker cookbook older than the one you described, so I'm not sure if it will be exactly the one you're looking for, but here goes:

APPLE CRISP (Apple Crumble)

Place in buttered 10x6x2" baking dish 4 cups sliced apples. Sprinkle with 1 tsp. cinnamon, 1 tsp. salt, 1/4 cup water. Rub together 3/4 cup sifted GOLD MEDAL Flour, 1 cup sugar, 1/3 cup butter. Drop mixture over apples. Bake. Serve warm with cream.

TEMPERATURE: 350 degrees (mod. oven)

TIME: Bake 40 min.

AMOUNT: 6 servings

Hope this helps! Gina

That's sort of how I make mine except I omit the water, and I use more butter and sugar, add nutmeg ,Quaker oats, and I use brown sugar instead of white sugar.

I have an APPLE CRISP recipe that I've used many times that is delicious and quick to prepare.  This recipe came from an old FARM JOURNAL cookbook and might be similar to the Betty Crocker recipe. 

3/4 C. quick-cooking rolled oats                       

3/4 C. brown sugar, firmly packed

1/2 C. flour

1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon

1/2 C. butter or regular margine

4 C. sliced peeled apples

Combine rolled oats, brown sugar, flour and cinnamon.  Cut in butter/margine until thoroughly mixed.

Place apples in greased 8" square pan.  Sprinkle oat mixture evenly over top.  Bake at 375 degrees F. for 30 minutes.  Serve hot or cold.  Makes 6 servings. 

Great served warm with a scoop of ice cream on it!

I found this recipe in an old Betty Crocker Cookbook I found at a yard sale this summer.  It has a date of 1961 on it. 

Apple Crisp (Apple Crumble)

Mrs. Herbert A Berg, St. Paul Minnisota substitutes 1 cup graham cracker crumbs for the flour and oatmeal in this recipe.

4 cups sliced, pared, cored baking apples (about 6 medium)

2/3 to 3/4 cup brown sugar (packed)

1/2 cup gold medal flour

1/2 cup rolled oats

3/4 tsp. cinnamon

3/4 tsp. nutmet

1/3 cup soft butter

Heat oven to 375.  Place sliced apples in greased square pan, 8x8x2 inches or a baking dish 10x6x11/2inches or 1 1/2 quart baking dish.  Blend remaining ingredien5ts until mixture is crumbly.  Spread over apples.  Bake 30 59 35 minutes or until apples are tender and topping is golden brown.  Serve warm with cream, ice cream, or Hard Sauce. 6 servings.


Sounds good.  I may try this one.
