Classic Apple Crisp


For the apple filling:<!–nextpage–>

  • 6 cups peeled and sliced apples (such as Granny Smith, Honeycrisp, or Fuji)
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

For the crisp topping:

  • 3/4 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9×9 inch baking dish or a similar size baking dish.
  2. Prepare the apple filling:
    • In a large bowl, combine the sliced apples, granulated sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, and lemon juice. Toss until the apples are evenly coated. Transfer the apple mixture to the prepared baking dish and spread it out evenly.
  3. Make the crisp topping:
    • In another bowl, combine the rolled oats, flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt.
    • Add the cold butter pieces and use your fingers or a pastry cutter to blend the mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs. The butter should be well incorporated but still in pea-sized pieces.
  4. Assemble and bake:<!–nextpage–>
    • Sprinkle the crisp topping evenly over the apple filling in the baking dish.
    • Place the dish in the preheated oven and bake for 40-45 minutes, or until the topping is golden brown and the apple filling is bubbling around the edges.
  5. Serve:
    • Remove the apple crisp from the oven and let it cool slightly before serving.
    • Serve warm, optionally with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream.


  • Feel free to adjust the sweetness of the apple filling by adding more or less sugar, depending on the tartness of your apples and your personal preference.
  • You can add a handful of chopped nuts (such as pecans or walnuts) to the crisp topping for extra crunch and flavor.
  • Leftovers can be stored covered in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat in the oven or microwave before serving.

This classic apple crisp is perfect for any occasion, from family gatherings to cozy nights at home. It’s easy to make and always a crowd-pleaser with its comforting flavors of cinnamon-spiced apples and crispy oat topping. Enjoy making and indulging in this irresistible dessert!
