Old Fashioned Crisp
When it comes to desserts, something with apples will always be on the top of my list! They’re so versitile and the flavors are perfect with so many other things!
Today I bring you the best and easiest apple crisp you’ll ever make – seriously! It’s a true classic! This is one of my go to recipes when I need a quick dessert, and I’ll make it all year long. You’ll love the oats added for the topping, as they give that crispy crunch with the super soft baked apples and cinnamon!
Eat it by itself or with a big scoop of vanilla bean ice cream with some caramel sauce! If you have leftovers this will also make a great treat for breakfast as well.
What kind of apples do I use for an Apple Crisp?
Honestly, you can use any apples you like! While different varieties will have a slightly differnt taste with sweetness and tart, any of them will work. I almost always use Granny Smith apples (which is what I also use in my apple pie), because I love that tartness. You might also want to try Golden Delicious or Honeycrisp. Whatever you choose, just be sure they’re firm and crisp!
How do I make an Apple Crisp?
I start by peeling my apples. This step is completely up to you, as some prefer not to have the apple peels and others don’t mind them. Next you’ll want to chop them into bite size pieces, just keep the sizes of each piece as consistent as possible so they’ll all bake the same.
Next you’ll want to mix together your sugar, flour, and ground cinnamon in a large bowl. When it’s mixed all together add the apple pieces and toss them around until they’re fully coated. Turn all of the mixture and apples out into an 8×8 baking dish.
Now it’s time to make the topping (my favorite!). In a medium bowl combine the oats, remaining flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and melted butter. Mix well and crumble over your apple mixture, then bake!
