How to Make Apple Crisp

Provided By

Apple crisp is a scrumptious apple dessert that is especially popular in the fall when the apples are in season. Other fruits and berries, such as peaches, pears, blueberries, and rhubarb are also used alone or in combination to make delicious crisps.

An apple crisp is very similar to an apple crumble and apple cobbler in the manner that they do not traditionally have a bottom crust but each has a little different topping. The topping for an apple crisp is generally of a coarser texture than that of the apple crumble and the cobbler has a topping similar to a pie crust. With all of the great varieties of apples that are available during apple season you have many apple crisp recipes to choose from but can also enjoy Apple Crumble, Apple Pandowdy, and Apple Brown Betty recipes.

Apple Crisp

A crisp is a sweet dessert made with baked fruit as the bottom layer, which is topped with a crumbly topping. It is commonly referred to as a "fruit crisp" or as a crisp described by the name of the fruit in the dessert, such as apple crisp, a three fruit crisp, or something similar. A typical crisp combines a variety of ingredients, which include brown sugar, oatmeal and nuts that are mixed with the butter, flour and cinnamon to create a granular topping that is spread over the baked fruit. Apple crisp is one of the most commonly prepared crisps. Although it can be served cold, it is most often served as a warm dessert.

Ingredients: Apple Crisp

  • 6 c. sliced Granny Smith apples (approx. 6 med.)
  • 1 1/4 c. brown sugar
  • 3/4 c. flour
  • 3/4 c. quick oats
  • 1/2 c. butter or margarine
  • 1 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
  • Preheat the oven to 375°F. Butter the bottom and sides of a 9 x 11 baking dish.

  • Place the sliced apples in the bottom of the baking dish and spread out evenly.
  • Combine all the remaining ingredients together in another bowl and mix until well blended. The mixture should have a crumbly texture.
  • Sprinkle the crumbly mixture evenly over the apples. Place in the preheated oven and bake for 30 minutes or until apples are tender when poked and the topping is golden brown and crispy.

  • Remove from the oven and serve while warm. Serve with a scoop of ice cream for an extra delicious treat.
