Apple Crisp


This is a classic, simple dessert that fills the house with the aromatic and fruity scent of apples, cinnamon & butter.  I like to serve the crisp warm with a large dollop of crème fraiche.


  • 6 – 8 baking apples peeled, cored and sliced   (I use Granny Smith or Golden Delicious)
  • 1 tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • ¼ cup white sugar
  • 1 ½ cups firmly packed brown sugar
  • ½ cup + 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 stick cold unsalted butter, cut into small chunks


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 13 x 9 x 2 inch baking dish or pan.
  2. Combine apples, cinnamon, white sugar, ½ cup of brown sugar and 2 tablespoons flour.  Toss well and pour mixture into baking dish.
  3. Combine remaining flour, remaining brown sugar, oats, salt and ¾ of butter in a medium sized bowl.  Using 2 knives, a pastry blender or your fingers, blend ingredients until they look like coarse crumbs, working quickly to keep butter cold.  Pour mixture over apples.  Dot remaining butter on top of crisp.
  4. Bake crisp for approximately 50 minutes, or until bubbly and brown and apples are tender inside when pierced by a knife.  Allow to stand for at least 15 minutes before serving.  May be served warm or at room temperature.
