Apple Crisp

We were so busy last Sunday with house chores and also worried because one of my dogs was stung by a bee and had a horrible reaction . After a long day, my husband grilled some turkey burgers and I wanted to make dessert but it had to be quick, easy and with stuff I already had (grocery shopping was not in my mind).

I looked around and saw I had some apples so I decided to make an apple crisp. I know it’s not Fall but come on …. who doesn’t love the smell of cinnamon and apples around their house?

This is a recipe of an Apple Crips with a crunchy oats topping. Don’t forget to add a scoop of vanilla ice cream too. Enjoy!!


For the apple filling

5 apples, peeled, cored and cut into wedges (I used 2 granny smith and 3 gala)

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1 1/2 tablespoons flour

For the topping

1 1/4 cups al purpose flour

3/4 cup of rolled oats

1/2 cup light brown sugar

3/4 teaspoon of ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon sat

11 tablespoons of super cold butter, cut into small pieces

1/2 cup nuts ( I used walnuts)


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

For the apple filling

In a large bowl, toss together the apples, lemon juice, sugar, and flour. Pour the apple mixture into a buttered 2-quart baking dish and set aside.

For the oat topping

In a large mixing bowl, mix the flour, rolled oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt. With a pastry blender or your fingers work the butter into the flour mixture just until it comes together and large clumps form. Fold nuts into mixture.

Sprinkle the topping evenly over the fruit. Bake the apple crisp until the fruit is bubbling and the topping is golden brown and crisp, about 50-60 minutes.
