The Best Apple Crisp Recipe

Simply THE BEST Apple Crisp RecipeI love sharing recipes. Sometimes they’re healthy, and sometimes they’re not. I’ve been working hard on my healthy lifestyle, but sometimes you have to treat yourself to something delicious. It’s all about moderation, right?

My family came over for dinner last night and I made roasted garlic parmesan potatoes, baked salmon, and seasoned broccoli. I also made this heavenly apple crisp for dessert. I love how easy, fast, and simple apple crisp is to make, but it tastes so rich, heavy, and complicated. There are so many ways you can make it and I decided to play it safe and use a recipe that had five stars and has been made over 5000 times. The amazing thing about this recipe is that you don’t have to use apples; you can use almost any fruit such as; blueberries, peaches, cranberries, blackberries, and more. This is a recipe I’ll be saving and making over and over again. It’s the ultimate comfort dessert.Simply THE BEST Apple Crisp RecipeIf you’re looking for an apple crisp recipe that is loaded in flavor, heavenly sweet and has a texture equal to perfection, this one is it. The top layer is almost like a cookie granola bar and the apple filling tastes just like a warm pie. I think the top layer would be fun to add to the top of a muffin a streusel. I’m also thinking about making a cheesecake filling to add to a blueberry version.

One of the great things about apple crisp is that you can make it all year round. You can make it for almost all holidays too. Sure, apples are typically popular in the fall, but we’ve always eaten apple crisp year round.Simply THE BEST Apple Crisp RecipeAnother great thing about apple crisp is that you can make it ahead of time. I prepared this before dinner and it was perfect by the time dessert rolled around.Screen Shot 2015-11-17 at 12.28.56 PMSimply THE BEST Apple Crisp RecipeThis dessert made the entire place smell like fall.

    I made this today and oh my god! SO delicious! I used about half the apples you did though because I only had that many. My attempts NEVER look as pretty as yours though!
    Thank you for the delicious recipe 🙂

    This was SUPER delicious! Everyone loved it! I used honey crisp & pink lady (couldn’t find any granny smith).
    I had to add another 1/2-1 cup of water around the edges of my pan mid-baking because it was drying out and not cooking the apples very well.
    I don’t know if its because my apples weren’t as juicy.

    It turned out perfect though! Just wanted to give the heads up in case anyone has dryer apples like me 🙂

      All ovens cook differently, could be the apples, or the pan size!:) But smart thinking with the water! I made this and the half a cup was TOO much water once becuase the apples were so juicy!

      Thanks for the tips!!

    I recently started switching the butter for coconut oil when I make apple crisp to make it more nutritious. It also tastes great!

    This looks delicious – can’t wait to try it!
    How many apples does it usually take to fill 10 cups?

    The crunchy, chewy components of an oatmeal cookie combine with buttery apple slices in this tasty oatmeal cookie apple crisp recipe.

    The tangy flavor of rhubarb combines well with apples in a fruity crisp baked with a crumbly topping of brown sugar, butter, and quick oats.

    I can’t wait to try out this recipe! I have been making a lot of banana bread lately. It’s not really a dessert but it’s the only baking I’ve getting into lately.
    Your apple crisp looks like it turned out amazingly! Thanks again for sharing!

    YUM! That looks so good. I always feel like apple crisp is so much work, then I make it and think how I need to make it more often.

    These pictures have me craving it now 🙂

    Did the apples still have a bite to them, I really like when they are soft! Just curious because I’m totally going to make this and if I need to cook the apples a little longer I’ll go that extra step lol! Thanks for sharing!

    Yum!! Apple crisp is one of my favorite desserts. I am making dessert for Thanksgiving this year and I’m thinking this could be one of the dishes I make. I wanted to make apple pie from scratch but I’m not sure I could pull that off lol. This looks a bit easier! Thank you for sharing the recipe 🙂

    Also, what apples did you use? I know different apples turn out better when baking. 🙂

    Thanks! <3

    That looks SO delicious! Definitely going to make some and take to my family’s when I travel this weekend! Did you paint a standard glass dish on the outside, or did you buy it like that? If so, what kind of paint did you use to make it stick? Looks super nice! 🙂
