This easy Apple Crisp recipe has a delicious apple cinnamon flavor and a crispy, chewy, brown sugar and oatmeal topping that is absolutely delicious! That makes this the Best Apple Crisp I ever made!
When I think of apple crips, I think of my school days. With the sweet thickened apples and that crispy, chewy, and absolutely delicious crumb topping. I would take the dessert for the topping alone, I loved it that much!
Making a dessert to please myself
I belive most of my readers who come by here on a regular basis know that I am not the picky one in our household. However, there are a few things I am picky about.
One food I am picky about is Apple Crisp. I like my apple crisp to taste just the apple crisp we would get in the school cafeteria when I was a little girl. If Apple Crisp was on the menu, then you better bet I was buying my lunch that day, no matter what it was!
What makes this the best Apple Crisp Recipe I ever made
The Apples: You want a juicy apple. One of my favorite apples to use is the Honeycrisp Apple. Actually, its one of the only ones I really want to buy when apple season is here. Other apples that would work well would be a tart apple such as the cortland, a golden delicious, or Granny Smith apple.
The crisp topping: butter, brown sugar, flour, and oats are a requirement for a yummy topping. You need the right amount of all these things to get the best result!
Tips and substitutions
Don’t skip peeling the apples and make sure they are thinly sliced.
If peeling the apples ahead of time, toss prepared apples with lemon juice to prevent browning.
Substitute 1 tablespoon of apple cider for the water.
Substitute 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg for the cinnamon, or use 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg.
