Easy Apple Crisp Recipe!


I caught a bit of Cabin fever hanging out with Sandy all week so I decided to do my favorite and most relaxing thing…


Since I had so many apples left from apple picking, I decided I wanted to bake something fun but easy. I wasn’t in the mood to bake a pie crust from scratch :) So I decided to do the next best thing…

Apple Crisp!

I had never made this before so astonished at how easy it was to make, and how yummy it all turned out.

This is actually quite the perfect recipe for thanksgiving!

Recipe adapted from AllRecipes.com:

 10 cups all-purpose apples, peeled, cored and sliced
 1 cup white sugar
 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour**
 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
 1/4 cup water*
 1 cup quick-cooking oats
 1 cup all-purpose flour**
 1 cup packed brown sugar
 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
 1/2 cup butter, melted
* Original recipe called for 1/2 cup water I reduced to 1/4 cup after reading a lot of reviews…however if you like a juicy apple crisp stick to the  original 1/2 cup of water
** I only had cake flour on hand and I added a few more tablespoons to make up for the reduced gluten content




  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degree C).
  2. Place the sliced apples in a 9×13 inch pan. Mix the white sugar, 1 tablespoon flour and ground cinnamon together, and sprinkle over apples. Pour water evenly over all.
  3. Combine the oats, 1 cup flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda and melted butter together. Crumble evenly over the apple mixture.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for about 45 minutes.

    Saying hi from SITS! I love crisps! I've posted twice about them and my kids and their friends just love them. A scoop of vanilka ice cream on top is fantastic. It is perfect for thxgiving – you could add in some dried cranberries – that would make it even more festive!

    Good luck w the writing!
