the best apple crisp

A couple weeks ago I got a mad craving for apple crisp and it was one of those times I actually had all the ingredients on hand. Fruit desserts aren't usually my favorite (Confession: I loathe pie) but there's something about the butter/brown sugar/flour/oat crumble that I love, probably too much. I actually made this twice in one week and it was a really hot week so you know it's good if I was willing to turn the oven on in our already sweltering apartment. It's quick, simple, SO delicious and perfect for fall (countdown is on!)

The Best Apple Crisp

10 cups thinly sliced apples - I used granny smith apples
3/4 cup raw sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
a little over 1/4 cup water

1 cup oats
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup flour
6 tablespoons cold butter, cut into little chunks

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Put the sliced apples in a 9x13 pan (or similar dish) and sprinkle the sugar and cinnamon over them and pour the water on top.
Combine the oats, brown sugar and flour. Mix in cold butter with a pastry cutter—or your hands—until the mixture is crumbly and there are no large bits of butter. Sprinkle the mixture over the top of the apples. Bake at 350 degrees for 35-45 minutes, until golden brown on top and apples are soft.

  2. I'm making apple crisp today too! Last weekend we took a trip to go apple picking and ended up with half a bushel of Macintosh apples. I'm trying to use them up before they go bad and apple crisp seemed like the most delicious way of doing that. ;)

  3. We call this crumble in the uk, it's one of my favourite desserts as you can add almost any fruit or berries. :D Rhubarb and ginger is my current favourite. :)

  4. I love apple crisp and admittedly - I have made just the *crisp* before, sans apples. Sometimes you gotta do what ya gotta do when you're having a major craving. ;)

  5. Ooh, that topping is one of my favorites. I love pie, and crumble is the best! Looks like an easy recipe to try for me, since I'm not a great cook or baker. Thanks for sharing it!
