Delicious Apple Crisp

Author: Over The Big Moon


  • 7 regular-sized Granny Smith Apples approx 3 lbs
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar light
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 stick salted butter cold
  • 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  • Start by preheating your oven to 375 degrees.
  • Mix your dry ingredients in a large bowl: 3/4 cup all-purpose flour, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 2 tablespoons granulated sugar.
  • Take your cold butter and cut it into cubes and cut it into the dry mixture. It's best to use a pastry blender if you have one. You want the mixture to be coarse when finished.
  • Next, add the 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats. I like to use my hands to combine the oats to the mixture. But, if that makes you uncomfortable, then feel free to use a large spoon. You want it to be clumpy!
  • Put in the fridge or freezer until you're ready for it.
  • Now it's time to prepare your apples. Start by washing and cubing your apples. Put them in a bowl and toss them with the 2 1/2 tablespoons (or so) of lemon juice, 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon and remaining granulated sugar.
  • Transfer the apples to a shallow baking dish or individual ramekins. You want the baking dish (or ramekin) filled about 1/2 way with apples.
  • Then put a layer of the topping mixture over the apples.
  • Put the baking dish(es) on a rimmed baking sheet and bake until golden brown and bubbling a little - approx 60 minutes.
  • Allow them to cool for 10-15 before serving. Top with whipping cream!
