  • 8 c. apples peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 c. sugar
  • 1 -2 Tbsp Cinnamon
  • 1 c. butter melted
  • 1 c. brown sugar
  • 1 c. flour
  • 1 c. oatmeal
  • 1 tsp baking powder


  • Put sliced apples on bottom of 9×13 in pan.
  • Sprinkle sugar and cinnamon over the top of the apples. Apply a liberal amount of cinnamon. This is one of the best parts!
  • Mix butter, brown sugar, flour, oatmeal and baking powder. Pat down on top of apples and sugar.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes



  • What kind of apples? We love to use Granny Smith apples in our crisp. They have a tart, sour flavor and crisp texture. They are a great all around baking apple for your fall desserts. Other options are Gala, Honeycrisp and Golden Delicious.
  • To Peel or not to Peel? Yes! If you don’t peel the apple it will make for a tougher texture because the skin doesn’t break down when you bake it.
  • Slice Apples – Make sure to slice the apples thinly so they become fully tender. We recommend this Johnny Apple Peeler that cores, peels and slices your apples!
  • Leftovers – This is best enjoyed fresh in my opinion, but will last a few days if stored in an airtight container at room temperature. The longer it sits the softer the topping becomes.
  • Freezer Friendly – Prepare and bake the apple crisp as directed. Cool completely, then cover with a double layer of aluminum foil and slip into a resealable bag. We like to bake it in a disposable pan for easy clean up. When ready to enjoy thaw overnight in the refrigerator then warm up in the oven at 350 degrees F for about 20 minutes or until heated through.
