Apple Crisp

October 25, 2016

There are so many favorite things about fall for me. From the crisp air to the crisp desserts. See where I'm going with this?? Let me cut to the chase. Y'all, I can't get enough of a crumble on top of a sweet treat. It's not possible. I could easily eat just the crumble topping all by itself. In fact, the next time I make a crisp, I'm doubling the crumble part so that I can have more on top.

Now get to baking and enjoy this deliciously easy recipe! I hope it has you feeling all cozy-like and content! Brew a pot of coffee to enjoy with it. Cheers!

  • What You'll Need
    • Crust & Crumble
      • 1 stick butter
      • 1 cup all-purpose flour 
      • 3/4 cup old-fashioned oats (not the quick cook or instant)
      • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
      • 1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
    • Apple Filling
      • 5 medium to large apples, peeled and sliced
      • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
      • 1 1/2 TSP apple pie spice
      • 2 TSP all-purpose flour

  • What You'll Do
    • Preheat the oven to 350°. Line a large round baking pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
    • To make the crust and crumble, melt the butter in a large microwave bowl. Then stir in the flour, oats, and sugars. Mix until well combine and the mixture has formed crumble pieces. 
    • Measure out one cup of the crumble and set aside. Put the remaining crumble mixture into the parchment paper-lined pan. Pack the mixture into the pan until even and smooth. Set aside.
    • For the apple filling, add the apple slices, sugar, apple pie spice, and flour in a bowl. Gently mix together.
    • Distribute the apple filling evenly over the crust.
    • Sprinkle the remaining crumble mixture over the top of the filling. Squeeze the mixture in your hands before sprinkling to create more clumps. 
    • Bake for about 40 minutes. Let cool, then carefully lift the parchment paper out of the pan and set the apple crisp (still on the parchment paper) on a cutting board to serve. You can serve hot or room temperature. Cut like a pizza.
