Courtney’s Apple Crisp

by Courtney on November 8, 2010

When it comes to dessert, anything with chocolate or frosting is usually right at the top of my list. However, there is one special treat that has always held a special place in my heart dessert belly: Apple Crisp.

It’s one of my favorite fall-weather treats to make! I’ve been using the same recipe for years, and to be honest, I really don’t remember where it came from?!?


I’ve had it written on this index card, and I’m not sure if I came up with it on my own or if I took it from somewhere? Who knows! :shock: But anyways, let’s get to the good stuff, shall we?

First, you’ll need to peel, core, and slice your apples. Or go ahead and use your apple peeler and make things a whole lot easier on yourself. If you don’t have one, you should really consider it. Here’s the one that I have, from Bed, Bath & Beyond: Apple Peeler/Corer.


Next, mix together your flour, brown sugar, and cinnamon,


and sprinkle over your sliced apples.


Let them cook for about 10 minutes, just to get slightly soft and super aromatic. :-P


While your apples are in the oven, begin mixing together your topping (aka, the best part of apple crisp EVER).



Brown Sugar…


Cinnamon + Nutmeg…



Once your dry ingredients are combined, it’s time to cut in your butter. If you have a pastry cutter, then I would recommend using that. But if not, I’ve found that a couple forks work pretty well.


Truth be told, this step is the one and only step that prevents me from making apple crisp more often. I despise cutting in butter in recipes! :shock:


After what seems like an eternity (but really only a couple minutes…I just like to whine about it) you’ll have a soft, crumbly topping.


But you’re not done yet! It’s time to add the OATS:


Nowwww you’re good to go. Feel free to sample at this time…you know…just in case. ;)


Spread your mixture evenly on top of your partially baked apples, and pop it all in the oven for another 30-35 minutes.


Then you’ve got yourself one tasty dish of apple crisp!



My favorite way to enjoy my apple crisp is when it’s still warm, topped with a little vanilla ice cream + caramel…

It’s absolutely HEAVENLY! :-P


The apple crisp is definitely best served warm, and topped with some vanilla ice cream or whipped topping. Try your best not to eat the whole dish in one sitting. ;)

Apple crisp was the very first recipe I ever made with my mother! I got to stay up extra late on the night we made it so I could help her take it out of the oven and have a slice :) Yours looks so delish!


7 Natalia@TheHealthScript November 8, 2010 at 9:29 am

Yum! I will definitely make that this weekend :)


8 Ashley November 8, 2010 at 9:37 am

Do you have something that cuts your apples so thin and perfect? Or do you just do it by hand with a knife?


9 Courtney November 8, 2010 at 6:33 pm

I use the apple peeler/corer that I linked to at the beginning of the post…it’s fantastic!

Where did you get the butter cutter from? (have no idea what else to call it!!!)
I’m loving your food pages…have you thought of publishing all the recipes (you may already have done so?) as I’d be the first in line to buy…!
