One of my favorite desserts is a fruit crisp. I love the brown sugar, butter and oats! The slight crispiness to the topping is just delightful. Plus a crisp can be thrown together in just a few minutes and be made with just about any fruit. I had some apples that needed to be used and an apple crisp was a perfect dessert.

Apple Crisp Recipe
  • 5 Cups Apples, peeled and sliced
  • 2 Tablespoons Sugar
  • ½ Cup Oats
  • ½ Cup Brown Sugar
  • ¼ Cup Flour
  • ¼ Teaspoon Cinnamon
  • ¼ Teaspoon Ground Nutmeg
  • ¼ Cup Butter
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Place sliced apples in a 2-quart square baking dish. Sprinkle sugar over top and mix.
  3. In a separate bowl combine oats, brown sugar, flour, nutmeg and cinnamon. Cut in butter using a pastry blender. The mixture should become coarse and crumbly.
  4. Sprinkle topping over apples.
  5. Bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes.


  • Other fruit can be used in this recipe. I have made peach and blueberry crisps plenty of times. For fruit that is more on the tart side, add a little more sugar.
  • Nuts can be added into the topping if you like. I like to add coarsely chopped walnuts.
  • Serve warm with vanilla ice cream!
  • If you have the canned apple pie filling, it makes a great base for this recipe. Just omit the granulated sugar on the apples in second step.
