Fall Apple Crisp

Fall Apple Crisp

One of the most perfect dishes that says “fall,” apple crisp is easy to prepare and always a crowd pleaser. We include an alternative crockpot method, too!

Fall Apple Crisp


5 large apples, sliced (peeling is optional)
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, divided
1 stick butter
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

Butter a 7 x 11 inch baking pan and fill with the sliced apples. If the apples are bland, a few drops of lemon juice can sharpen the flavor. Toss slices with 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon.

Combine the butter with the flour, oats, brown sugar, and remaining 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Cover apples with the crumb topping; press in lightly if necessary. Bake at 375° F for 25 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve with ice cream, whipped cream, or a dusting of confectioners’ sugar.

Crock Pot Method: Add sliced apples to crockpot, and top with crumb topping. Cover and set to High for 4 hours. Let cool with lid off and serve warm with ice cream!

What are you going to do with those leftover peels and cores? Make apple cider vinegar! Try this method.

    @ Stephanie Bonds Stephanie, you replaced all of the sugars with the powdered stevia? That doesn’t seem like a lot of sweetener to me. I’m going to try this method and see what happens, however I don’t use margarine. It’s really worse for you than butter. Thanks for your post.

    If you love cinnamon, sprinkle apples ’til almost dark, AND add shredded mild cheddar cheese to the crumbly topping — now it’s Cheese Apple Crisp — and delicious…..

  • Stephanie Bonds says:

    I made mine with 1/2 tsp powdered stevia extract instead of the sugars and butter instead of margarine AND 🙂 I used whole wheat flour instead of white flour. Other than that, it was all the same. 😉
    I think I got the trans fats, sugars, and bad bleached flour out so nobody will say they can’t have my apple crisp. It’s a good thing this recipe didn’t call for MEAT.

  • If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
