Easy Apple Crisp Recipe

Easy Apple Crisp

I love apple crisp.  It’s easy to make, tastes wonderful with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream, and uses up apples that might not be great to eat out of hand.

I remember an apple crisp recipe from my childhood that was something to dream about.  I’m pretty sure I’m remembering a dream, because I’ve NEVER been able to replicate it.  I can remember it being really moist and the top super sweet and full of cinnamon.  While these are all elements of every apple crisp, none seem to taste like the one in my memory….hence the reason I think I dreamed it up.

This recipe is a REALLY good one, if not the one of my dreams – and is super simple to throw together.  Easy for a quick Sunday dinner dessert or as a way to use up apples that might be a bit soft.  Give it a try and let me know what you think!

  • 4 apples sliced (4-5 cups - the thicker you slice, the longer it bakes. Go for thin)

  • 1/3 C butter melted
  • 3/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves


  1. Heat oven to 375ºF.
  2. spray bottom and sides of a pan or baker that will fit your apples with a bit of space on top. See photo for what I used.

  4. In a bowl, stir remaining ingredients together and drizzle in butter and stir until crumbly; sprinkle over apples.
  5. Bake 25-30 minutes until topping is golden brown and apples are tender when pierced with a fork.
