Simple Apple Crisp

Apple Crisp

For me, Apple Crisp is such a simple, yet incredible dessert in the Fall.

Wouldn’t you agree?

The experience of picking the apples off of the tree, peeling and slicing the apples and mixing the crisp topping is so wholesome. There is nothing like the smell of freshly picked apples in the fall.

Perhaps it is the memory of apple picking at my Grandparents’ apple orchard or the LOVE for fall with the crisp breeze and the sunny days. Perhaps Apple Crisp is a dessert that I remember fondly from my childhood. I honestly don’t know what it is, but Apple Crisp is a comfort food for me. I LOVE to bake Apple Crisp!

This simple apple crisp has few ingredients, is easy to make and is a perfect fall dessert.
  • 6 apples, peeled and sliced
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla
  • 1 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  1. Put lemon juice, vanilla and maple syrup in a large bowl.
  2. Peel and slice apples and mix with the lemon juice mixture.
  3. Pour into your baking dish (I often use a deep dish pie plate).
  4. In a medium sized bowl, mix brown sugar, cinnamon, flour, oats and butter with your hands until butter is fully mixed in. The butter may resemble the size of peas.
  5. Sprinkle crisp topping on top of apples.
  6. Bake on a cookie sheet in a 375 degree oven for approximately 30 minutes or until apples are soft and bubbling and top has started to brown.
  7. Serve with vanilla ice cream (optional but delicious).

    I’ve never made Apple Crisp. I’m always looking for nice recipes to try. I’m hoping to get into the apple and pumpkin baking craze during the fall season. Always have apples and bananas in my house…

    Apple crisp is a family favourite. I like mixing up the types of apples, and I have even added a pear for a nice flavour. Don’t forget the cool whip.

  10. Apple crisp is just so good. We also like to make simple baked apples. We drizzle some honey and cinnamon over the top of halved apples and bake. Good on its own or with ice cream. Yum! I love apple season.
