It’s As Simple As Apple Crisp!

simple apple crisp

Since this past weekend was the 4th of July, I was feeling a bit patriotic.  And what’s more American than apple pie?  But of course apple pie is a lot of work to make.  So naturally, I took the easy way out and made apple crisp instead!

Basically you get the same flavors as apple pie but without the yummy pie crust.  But that’s OK, I rather like the oat topping myself.  And since hubs won’t eat apple pie, it really doesn’t make sense for me to make a whole apple pie to eat by myself.  Now that’s just darn right piggish!

Simple Apple Crisp


2 Granny Smith apples; peeled, cored and sliced
2 Golden Delicious apples; peeled, cored and sliced
3 tablespoons flour
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon allspice
splash of lemon juice


3/4 cup flour
1/3 cup oats
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons cold butter


1.  Preheat oven to 350°.  Peel, core and slice apples.  Place in a bowl and sprinkle with enough lemon juice to coat all slices.  Set aside.

2.  In a large mixing bowl, combine flour and sugars with the cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice.  Mix well.  Add apples slices and toss until coated completely with sugar spice mix.  Transfer to a baking dish sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.  Set aside.

3.  In a small mixing bowl, combine all topping ingredients except the butter.  Mix well.  Add butter in chunk pieces.  Using a fork, blend butter into mixture until small lumps form.  Evenly top apples with this mixture.

4.  Bake uncovered for 35 – 40 minutes.  Let cool slightly before serving.
