Homemade Apple Crisp

By free admission I am not a baker.  However, there is just something about fall that makes me want to fire up my oven and fill my house with the scents of brown sugar and cinnamon.  And when the time comes to get baking, my go-to dessert is this delightful Homemade Apple Crisp.  It has all of those sweet fall flavors that you crave, but it couldn't be easier to make!

Let me show you how I did it!

Homemade Apple Crisp:
*Prep Time: 10 min.  *Cook Time:  1 hour  *Difficulty: Easy  *Servings:  4-6


  • 4-5 Medium Granny Smith Apples (or any apple you have on hand)
  • 1 c. All Purpose Flour
  • 1 c. Quick Oats
  • 1 c. and 3 tbsp. Brown Sugar
  • 1 tbsp. Cornstarch
  • 1 tsp. Cinnamon
  • 1 stick Unsalted Butter, room temperature
  • Pinch of Salt
First things first, preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Then you will need to peel your apples, remove the cheeks from the core, and slice them.
Place the slices in a greased 9x9 baking dish.

To the apples add the cornstarch and

3 tbsp. of brown sugar.

Now with your hands, gently toss the apples with the cornstarch and brown sugar until they are coated.

Time to focus on the crumble topping.
In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, 1 c. brown sugar, oats, butter, and salt.

Use your fingers to work the butter into the flour and oat mixture.
You will know it is ready when it resembles wet sand and holds together when you squeeze it.

Sprinkle the topping over the apples.

 Place in the 350 degree oven and bake for one hour.
This will be the longest hour of your life.  Your house is going to smell amazing!

Oh, would you just look at that!  That is like a little piece of heaven in a dish.  Warm, crunchy, sweet, and a little spicy.  This Homemade Apple Crisp truly is the PERFECT autumn treat!  So tonight grab the kids, grab your husband, wife, friends, whoever and make this scrumptious dessert!

As always...

Happy Eating, Happy Reading, Happy Living,
