Apple Crisp

Servings: 8-10

Time: 1 hour

My mother always made apple crisp in the fall. The smell reminds me of those cool, fall days of childhood! It’s also a really flexible recipe. You can play with the amount of apples or the size of the pan if you prefer a thicker apple filling.  Or if you prefer a thinner layer of apples just use a larger dish or 1 or 2 less apples. You can’t mess up this recipe, I promise!



  • 6-7 large apples, baking variety
  • 8 tablespoons of butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup of brown sugar
  • ¾ cup all purpose flour
  • ¾ cup of rolled oats
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla



  1. Preheat oven to 350F
  2. Prepare a 13×9 baking dish by greasing it with butter
  3. Peel, core and slice the apples into thin wedges. Lay them flat into your prepared baking dish.
  4. Combine butter, brown sugar, flour, rolled oats, cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla into a bowl.  Using a butter knife, cut the butter into the ingredients until you have a well combined, crumble mixture.  Using your clean or gloved hands is also a really great way to get this done well!
  5. Sprinkle the crumble mixture evenly on top of your apples.
  6. Bake for 30-40 minutes until bubbly and apples are soft.
  7. Enjoy warm, cold, or à la mode.
