Apple Crisp Recipe

Sunday while getting some items to prep my snacks for the week. I stopped at my local Stop & Shop. I went in for butter and came out with a bunch of stuff. One of the items being two large apples. I really thought that the Mister was going to juice the apples. However, yesterday on a whim. I decided to make homemade apple crisp. I did a very quick search on Pinterest to find the easiest recipe, and I was lucky enough to find one. I had all of the ingredients, needed and only two large apples on hand and honestly that was good enough for me.  (If you've been following my blog for a while now, you know if I don't have it on hand. I will go without the item and proceed on with the recipe.) Let me tell you, this Apple Crisp came out simply divine. I had to top it with vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce. The only thing I regret is not having homemade caramel sauce on hand.

Recipe Adapted from

4-6 Servings
    For the crumb topping
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup butter, diced into small chunks
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar

  • For the Apple filling
  • 3 Tbsp milk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2-3 large Granny Smith apples, peeled and sliced thin
  • 3 Tbsp butter, melted
  • 2 Tbsp flour
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • dash of salt
  • Serve with Vanilla Ice Cream and caramel sauce 
  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. In a medium size bowl add the crumb topping ingredients listed above, with a pastry blender (or fork) until it resembles small crumbs. Refrigerate while you prepare the apple filling.
  3. Apple Filling: In a small bowl, combine melted butter and flour until well blended. Add the lemon juice, milk, vanilla and stir well. Stir in brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Pour butter mixture over apples and toss to coat. 
  4. Pour apple mixture into an 8x8-inch baking dish and spread into an even layer. Sprinkle crumb topping evenly over the apples. 
  5. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. 
  6. Remove from oven and allow to cool for about 10 minutes prior to serving.
  7. Serve with Vanilla Ice Cream and caramel sauce 

Anywho, I thought this was the perfect way to start the first day of Autumn.
