Key Ingredients You Need For This Recipe

  • Rolled oats- Make sure you are using rolled oats.
  • Cinnamon and brown sugar- This gives the additional flavors to the crisp.
  • Butter- Use unsalted butter for the best results.
  • Apples- Make sure you are using baking apples. I recommend using fuji or granny smith.
  • Lemon juice- This prevents your apples from turning brown.
  • Cornstarch- This helps to create the “sauce” that cooks in the crisp.

How to Make Apple Crisp

Make the oat topping in a medium bowl. Use your hands to combine the dry ingredients together with the butter until it is crumbly.

Next, make the apple filling. Combine the filling together in a large bowl until the apples are well coated.

Pour the filling into the baking pan and spread it out evenly. Pour the melted butter over top and then sprinkle the oat filling over top.

Bake until the filling is bubbling on the edges, about 45 minutes. Serve warm with ice cream.

Substitutions

Use dark brown sugar instead of light brown sugar for the oat topping.

If using salted butter, omit the added salt in the topping.

Use your favorite kind of apples but make sure they are baking apples. If they are not baking apples, they will either turn to mush or they will not get soft.

Use bottled lemon juice instead of fresh lemon juice.

How Long Does an Apple Crisp Last

This dessert will last about 3 to 4 days. It is important that the apple crips is stored properly in order to help it last the longest possible and taste its best. It can be reheated in the oven on a very low temperature if you prefer it warm rather than cold or room temperature.

How to Store an Apple Crisp

This can be stored at room temperature or in the refrigerator. Make sure it is covered well in plastic or stored in an airtight container. I like to put a paper towel on top of the apple crips to collect any moisture so that it stays crisp.
