Best-Ever Apple Crisp

Crisp apples with an oat and walnut topping all wrapped up and snuggly in brown sugar and cinnamon goodness. Fall just got a little more cozy!

I don't know what I like better about this recipe: the tart apple filling, or the crisp topping. I hope you'll be inspired to make this classic fall favorite and decide which you like best.

Apple Crisp


4 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and sliced thinly

1 Tbsp. lemon juice

2 Tbsp. all-purpose flour

½ c. butter

½ c. brown sugar

½ tsp. ground allspice

½ tsp. ground cinnamon

Pinch of salt

1 tsp. vanilla extract


1 c. Old fashioned oats

¼ c. all-purpose flour

1/3 c. walnuts, chopped

½ c. brown sugar

½ tsp. ground cinnamon

¼ c. butter, chilled, cubed


Preheat oven to 375⁰F.

Drizzle lemon juice over sliced apples and toss to coat. Sprinkle with 1 Tbsp. flour and stir to coat. Set aside.

Combine butter, brown sugar, allspice, cinnamon and salt in medium sauce pot on stove top over medium heat. Stir until butter is melted.

Add apples. Stir to coat apples and bring to a boil.

Remove from heat and stir in vanilla extract. Pour into 9x9 baking dish.

In separate bowl, combine all topping ingredients. Use a pastry blender (or two knives in scissor fashion) to process until mixture resembles a coarse crumb texture.

Sprinkle topping mixture evenly over the top of apples. Place in preheated oven and bake at 375⁰F for about 35 minutes or until apples are tender. Remove from oven and let cool slightly before serving.
