Happy Monday! Bringing you my family’s favorite Fall dessert today, Apple Crisp!
I hope you had a good weekend. Do anything fun? My weekend consisted of hanging at home Friday night, hanging all day Saturday and catching up on Nashville – best show ever! You watch it? Love love LOOOOVE the music in that show.
Alrighty then, today I am bringing you another classic Fall dessert – Apple Crisp! This is the perfect dessert for Thanksgiving – I bet you’re all starting to plan out your Thanksgiving menus right? It’s just around the corner! ahh!
Good to know – this can be made the night before and then re-heated a bit before serving. Prepping for a big meal is key to not getting overwhelmed!
Apples are so good right now, especially those honey crisps right? Love them. I used half honey crisp and half granny smith in this recipe. Why? No reason other than I know granny smith are a little sour and tangy and the honey crisp…well they’re honey delicious so I figured the two would pair nice together and that they did!
After baking…golden brown and perfectly crumbly! The streusel topping is obviously the best part and I make a TON of it because I LOVE it.
Serve with a big scoop of vanilla (or cinnamon!) ice cream. Enjoy!

- 2½ pounds medium Granny Smith and Honey Crisp apples (about 5 or 6), peeled, cored, and sliced ¼ inch thick
- 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
- ¼ teaspoon fine salt
- ¾ cup packed light brown sugar
- ¾ cup uncooked rolled oats
- ½ cup all-purpose flour
- 6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces, plus more for coating the dish
- Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly coat an 8-by-8-inch baking dish with butter.
- Combine the apples, granulated sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt in a large bowl and toss to coat. Place the apple mixture in the prepared baking dish and set aside.
- Using the same bowl, mix together the brown sugar, oats, and flour until evenly combined. With your fingertips, blend in the butter pieces until small clumps form and the butter is well incorporated, about 2 minutes.
- Sprinkle the topping evenly over the apples and bake until the streusel is crispy and the apples are tender, about 50 to 60 minutes. Let cool on a rack at least 30 minutes before serving. Serve with vanilla ice cream.
