The Best Apple Crisp You'll Ever Eat

Okay, so I may have oversold this recipe just a tad with the post title, but I promise, it is really good. If you like apples. And crisp, buttery desserts. (And if you don't like either of those things, then my friend, I feel sorry for you.)

But, if you're hankering for a delicious, spot-hitting, fall-appropriate, coffee-complimenting sweet treat, then girlies, you've come to the right place.


4 medium tart cooking apples, sliced thinly (I actually use  mixture of granny smith and honeycrisp or gala.)                        
3/4 cup packed brown sugar                        
1/2 cup all-purpose flour 
Pinch of salt                       
1/2 cup quick-cooking or old-fashioned oats                        
1/3 cup butter or margarine, softened 
1 Tbsp. maple syrup                       
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon                        
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg                    
Cream or ice cream if desired, (and trust me, you should desire it.)                       

Heat oven to 375ºF. Grease bottom and sides of 8-inch square pan with shortening or non-stick cooking spray. (I use the spray to spare calories. I like my calories where I can taste 'em...in the butter!)

Spread apples in greased pan. In medium bowl, stir remaining ingredients except cream until well mixed; sprinkle over apples. 

I recommend sipping a pumpkin spice latte while assembling this dessert. I find it yields a better outcome ; )

Bake about 30 minutes or until topping is golden brown and apples are tender when pierced with a fork. Serve warm with vanilla bean ice cream or whipped topping!


  1. oh goodness this does look scrumptious! And I love the p-spice latte recco while baking. I must try...thanks for sharing!

  2. My mouth is watering! I think I am actually going to make this. (I say that about a lot of food and it never happens.) I actually have all of the ingredients except the apples so I have no excuse!

  3. This looks so tasty!!! Thank you for sharing!

  4. Um, yum. The only thing I'm upset about is the fact that I can't dig into that dessert right now!!!

  5. This looks SO GOOD!!!!!
    I'm going to have to give it a try :)

  6. I haven't made apple crisp in years, I used to make it all the time. What is wrong with me?!? Thanks for the reminder, I need to make some asap. Best part? All those apples totally make it healthy(ish)!

  7. That apple crisp looks delicious!
