Who doesn't love apple crisp, especially in the fall? As a dessert, serve it warm with vanilla ice cream. For a treat in the morning, have it for breakfast with some vanilla yogurt!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Jenni's shared a great, basic old-fashioned apple crisp recipe that even a beginner baker could make. It does not make a huge crisp, so perfect for a small family. The apples are coated with a little cinnamon sugar that allows the apples to be the star of the dessert. The crisp sprinkled on top is buttery, full of spices, and bakes perfectly to hold in the apples. We served ours with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and it was a delicious addition.

Note: Just make sure to slice the apples thin. If they are too thick, the crumb topping may brown before the apples completely cook. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Cinnamon Apple Crisp

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 375. Grease bottom & sides of an 8x8 square pan with shortening.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together 1/8 c of sugar and 1/4 tsp cinnamon.
  3. Toss together with the peeled, thinly sliced apples until coated evenly.
  4. Spread apples in the bottom of the pan.
  5. Mix together all topping ingredients except butter. Once mixed, add butter.
  6. Mix well. I find it easiest to use my hands to incorporate the butter into the mixture.
  7. Sprinkle evenly over apple mixture.
  8. Bake about 40-45 minutes at 375 until topping is golden brown. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream, if desired.
