Apple crisp is one of those desserts that screams comfort this time of year. The smell of it baking and the warm, cinnamon taste gives all the cozy feelings of Fall.

The crumble provides a crunchy texture to the soft, gooey filling, which is why I often prefer apple crisp to an apple


To me there is nothing better than an old fashion apple crisp straight out of the oven topped with vanilla ice cream and/or caramel sauce. The moment the ice cream starts to slightly melt on top immediately sends my tastes buds into excitement.

I hope you and your family enjoy all of the comfort of this old fashion apple crisp this Fall and Winter seasons.

I choose to leave the skin on my apples and slice them for more flavor and texture, but feel free to peel and/or dice the apples if you prefer.

Top the apple filling with the crumble topping, making sure to completely cover all of the apples.

The crumble topping creates a crunchy, golden brown crust that is the perfect addition to the sweet apple filling.

This comforting, old fashion apple crisp is perfect with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and salted caramel sauce!

For the Filling
  • 6 apples of your choice, sliced (I keep the peel on for extra flavor but feel free to remove if you wish); this should be about 6-7 cups of sliced apples
  • 2 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
For the Crumble Topping
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup old fashioned oats
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cold unsalted butter, diced into small cubes
  • 3/4 tsp cinnamon
  • pinch of kosher salt

Preheat oven to 350 F degrees. Grease an 8×8 baking dish and set aside.
In a mixing bowl, add chopped apples, granulated sugar, 3/4 tsp of cinnamon and lemon juice. Stir to combine, then transfer to prepared baking dish.
In a separate mixing bowl, make the crumble topping by adding brown sugar, oats, flour, cinnamon, salt, and diced cold butter. Use a pastry cutter or fork to cut the butter into the oat mixture until mixture resembled pea-sized crumbs. Alternatively, you can use your hands to cut butter into the mixture.
Spread topping over apples in baking dish, and gently pat to even it out. Bake 40-50 minutes, until golden brown and bubbly.
Serve warm by itself or with vanilla ice cream and enjoy!
