The Best Apple Crisp Ever
Apple crisp is an apple lover’s dream and the perfect fall dessert. Learn how to make the best apple crisp ever with simple pantry ingredients.
9x13 baking pan
- 8 cups apples peeled, cored, and sliced thin
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 2 TBSP sugar
- 1 1/2 cup flour
- 1 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup softened butter
- 2 cups oats quick-cooking or old fashioned
- vanilla ice cream
- whipped cream
- caramel sauce
Preheat oven to 350* and grease a 9×13 glass casserole dish. Peel, core, and thinly slice the apples. I currently use an apple peeler/corer that suctions to the counter. I’ve got the Kitchen Aid attachment version in my Amazon Wish List so I can be done with the hand-cranking You can also simply peel the skin off and slice the apple thinly by hand. Place apples in a 9×13 glass casserole dish. Sprinkle cinnamon and sugar on top of apples.
In large bowl, mix flour, brown sugar, butter and oatmeal–working mixture together with hands. Yes, your hands will get messy. A spoon simply doesn’t work as well!
Spread oatmeal mixture evenly over the top of the apples, and bake at 350 for an hour. You can shorten the baking time by 10-15 minutes for slightly firmer apples. Keep an eye on the crisp to make sure it doesn’t burn.
Serve with vanilla ice cream, whipped cream, caramel syrup, or all three! I’ve also sprinkled a little sea salt on with the caramel for a salted caramel apple crisp – amazing!
