I’m not sure when or how my apple obsession started, but it’s severe. Apples and I, we are an unstoppable force this time of year. I posted my delicious Apple Crisp recipe a really long, long time ago and realized it desperately needed an update.
I made a few tweaks to the recipe and took new photos and here you go. Re-introducing the BEST Apple Crisp recipe you’ll find anywhere on the internet. Or anywhere, for that matter. You will love this crisp. It is jam-packed with apples and yummy flavor that you will not be able to resist.
HOW TO MAKE APPLE CRISP
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and coat a 9×13 baking dish with cooking spray. Peel and slice 6 medium apples. Place sliced apples in the prepared pan in an even layer. In a medium bowl, combine 1/2 cup granulated sugar and cinnamon and mix well. Sprinkle evenly over the apple slices and pour water evenly over all.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the oats, flour, brown sugar, baking soda, baking powder, salt and butter. Stir until crumbly and sprinkle the topping over the apple mixture. Bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes, or until the top is golden brown. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream!
CAN I USE HOMEMADE WHIPPED CREAM FOR THIS RECIPE?
Absolutely yes! If desired, spoon a dollop or two of Homemade Whipped Cream on top!
RECIPE NOTES: MAKE THE BEST APPLE CRISP RECIPE
If you prefer a slow cooker version, check out this delicious Crockpot Applesauce!
When chopping and peeling the apples, fill a large bowl about half with cool water and squeeze the juice of 1/2 lemon into it. The lemon juice will keep your apples from getting brown while you get them prepped for the recipe. Use an apple corer/peeler if you have one because they will make this process go super fast. If you don’t have one, use a potato peeler and a knife to get the job done. You’ll need to peel, core and chop the apples. Place them into the water-lemon juice mixture as you work.
I have fallen IN LOVE with my dear apple peeler and corer. If a lot of apples go through your kitchen, you absolutely must consider buying one. It’s the most magical tool in my kitchen!
Feel free to replace some of the sugar with honey for a bit less of an unhealthy dessert (ha!).
Serve this warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!
Even better, pour salted caramel sauce over the top of it all.
You will never need another Apple Crisp recipe EVER again.
WHAT APPLES ARE BEST FOR EASY APPLE CRISP?
I recommend using a variety of baking apples and at the very least, use two kinds: one sweet and one tart. My favorite combo is Granny Smith apples and Honeycrisp apples.
DOES APPLE CRISP NEED TO BE REFRIGERATED?
For optimal freshness, keep apple crisp loosely covered and store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
