Apple Crisp

Apple betty, apple crisp, apple crumble, this old school, delicious dessert is not only easy to make, but loved by all. I had some apples that were at the end of their lifespan, and I really didn’t want to throw them out. Being cooked with some butter and brown sugar, with a crunchy crumble on top, it makes for a perfect fall dessert.

I remember apple crisp from when I was a kid, so the recipe has been around a long time. We all have a variation of apple crisp, this is mine.

The Filling

  • 4 apples peeled, cored, and cut into slices
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons cold butter diced in 1/4" inch pieces
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar

The Topping

  • 3/4 cup brown sugar packed
  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup regular oatmeal/rolledm oats
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup pecan pieces
  • 1/3 cup melted butter


  • Peel then cut the apples into quarters, core them, and slice into 1/4 inch thick slices.
  • Add the remaining filling ingredients, tossing to mix.
  • At this point I like to drizzle with a couple tablespoons of caramel sauce and lightly toss. Not a necessary step, just adds flavor.
  • Pour into a PAM sprayed 8x8" pan.
  • Combine the topping ingredients and mix until you have a crumbled texture.
  • Spread over the apples.
  • Bake at 350°F for 35-40 minutes until the top has browned.
  • Let cool a bit before serving.
