Easy Apple Crisp

Wednesday, October 6, 2021
What better way to kick off fall than with an old-fashioned taste using apples, cinnamon, and oats baked into a fabulous crisp that makes everyone's mouth water from the aroma?

This brings back such fantastic childhood memories since this vintage 1924 recipe has been around for so long just about everyone's mom in the 1960s made this when I was growing up.

Our recipe is easier and has such a classic basic flavor, and you can actually tweak it by adding more or fewer spices.

Of course, if you're not a fan of apples, we've also tried blueberry, bing cherries, raspberries, and even some mango as an addition you can check below for some other suggestions.

We use simple pantry ingredients that will have this delicious crisp on your tables in around 55 minutes.

Don't forget to add a scoop of your favorite ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream as a garnish to finish off this bowl of comforting dessert.

If you're a big apple fan you may also like to try our Baked Apple Cider Donuts, and our Homemade Apple Cider those are two other favorite fall treats.

Ingredients

  • 6 to 8 McIntosh apples peeled and sliced thin or chopped (in my opinion, these are all  the best overall apples for baking in this recipe however you can also use  Braeburn, Jonathan, Granny Smith, Cortland, or Rome apples, a tart apple works the best)

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
  2. Butter or line a  9 x 9 square baking dish with parchment paper.
  3. In a medium-sized bowl add the apples drizzle them with lemon juice, then add the sugar and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, 
  4. Add the apples to the prepared baking dish and make the topping.
  5. Using a clean bowl, add the oats, butter, last teaspoon of cinnamon,  brown sugar, salt, flour, and make a crumb mixture for the topping.

  2. Claudia, this is Larry's favorite dessert. He's diabetic, so I try not to bake too much. I've got some golden delicious apples and I'm going to give this a try tonight. It really isn't too terrible in terms of nutrition either. Thanks.

  4. Just wanted you to know I made this for Larry last night and his exact words were: "The only thing I don't like is that it's gone." I sneaked a bite and will make again. I'm going to try to lighten up just a bit by using whipped butter. We'll see how it goes. Thanks for a great dessert for one.
