Apple Crisp

18 Nov

I have had a crazy fall, as most of you can probably relate to. I have gotten involved in more ‘after work activities’ than I ever have in the past. It’s been a blessing getting involved in groups and surrounding myself with wonderful people, but it has taken away any sort of baking time that I have.

Once things slow down a little bit, I will be able to get back on track to a normal baking schedule. Until then, I will just enjoy what I am apart of now. Baking will always be there for me to go back to, these other opportunities won’t.

Even with my crazy schedule, I was able to bake some apple crisp a couple of weeks ago and am finally sharing it with you all.

I have yet to find a smell that out does the aroma of fresh apple crisp baking in the oven. Countless memories instantly overtake my mind when that scent fills the air. Apple crisp/apple pie are timeless recipes; they will never go out of ‘style’. Thank goodness.


I have had too many apple crisps and apple pies to count. However, this recipe is the best I’ve ever had. It combines the perfect ratio of apples to crisp.

As the cooler weather slowly embraces us, what sounds better than warming up the oven and throwing in a sweet, savory apple crisp?





1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup white sugar

1 cup oats

1 cup flour

1 stick butter

6 cups of apples

1/2 cup white sugar

2 teaspoons cinnamon

1/2 cup water



1) Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

2) Mix together the brown sugar, 1/2 cup of white sugar, oats and flour.

3) Cut in the butter using a pastry cutter. Put half of the crumb mixture in a 9×13 inch pan.

4) Pour sliced apples over the mixture.

5) In a small bowl, mix together the other 1/2 cup sugar, and cinnamon. Sprinkle this mixture over the apples.

6) Pour the water over the apples. Top with remaining crumb mixture.

7) Bake for 40-45 minutes, or until golden brown.


Enjoy my friends.

Love. Lindsi.
