Classic Apple Crisp Recipe (VIDEO)

This Apple Crisp recipe is loaded with fresh sliced apples and topped with a crisp and buttery cinnamon oat topping. It’s completely irresistible served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Watch the video tutorial and see how easy it is.

We love apple recipes from Apple Fritters to Apple Turnovers and of course our popular Apple Pie. If you love apple season as much as we do, this old-fashioned Apple Crisp is a must-try!

Why You’ll Love This Apple Crisp

Every year we go apple picking in my parent’s yard. They have 4 apple trees that really produce so we like to get creative with those apples to capture the season. Apple Crisp is on our regular rotation in Fall because it calls for a generous amount of apples and it is:

  1. Easy
  2. Quick
  3. Family-approved!

There’s nothing like pulling an apple dessert out of the oven to draw everyone into the kitchen. Who can resist the sweet aroma of a baked Apple Crisp?

Ingredients for the Best Apple Crisp

  • Apples – we used golden delicious apples, but there are so many that would work well (see list of options below)
  • Lemon juice – keeps the apples from browning and adds flavor
  • Sugar – adjust to taste depending on how tart your apples are
  • Flour – helps to thicken the bubbly apple juices. You can substitute with corn starch for a gluten-free version.
  • Cinnamon – our favorite complimentary spice for apple recipes

For the Apple Crisp Topping

  • Flour – bonds the crumb together
  • Oats – add a crisp and chewy texture to the topping
  • Sugar – we combine brown sugar and granulated sugar
  • Cinnamon – compliments the apple filling
  • Salt – balances the sweetness
  • Butter – use 1 cup or 16 Tbsp of unsalted, softened butter. If you forget to soften butter, watch our video for how to soften butter in 5 minutes.

The Best Apples for Apple Crisp

Select firm and crisp apples so they won’t get mushy in the oven. Apples vary a ton in sweetness so adjust sugar accordingly. We used golden delicious here with 3/4 cup of sugar. If using Granny Smith Apples, increase the sugar to 1 cup or add it to taste. Here are our favorite apples for baking:

  • Golden Delicious
  • Granny Smith
  • Fuji
  • Honeycrisp
  • Jonagold
  • Braeburn
  • Pink Lady

Pro Tip: you can use an assortment of apples and even combine sweet and tart apples.

How to Make Apple Crisp

  1. Prep – Butter a 9×13 casserole dish, preheat oven to 375˚F.
  2. Cut Apples – peel, core and slice apples into 1/4″- thick pieces (an apple peeler makes it easy), transfer to a bowl, and toss with 2 Tbsp lemon juice.
  3. Coat Apples – in a bowl, combine flour, sugar, and cinnamon then sprinkle over apples and stir to coat. Transfer to buttered casserole dish.
  4. Topping – In a mixing bowl, combine the dry topping ingredients: flour, oats, both sugars, cinnamon, and salt. Add diced softened butter and use your hands to stir in the butter until pea-sized crumbs form throughout. Spread topping evenly over your apples.
  5. Bake – place on the center rack in the oven and bake uncovered for 45-50 minutes until bubbling at the edges.
Step by step how to make and assemble an apple crisp

Pro Tip: If you want to keep your hands clean, you can mix the topping in a stand mixer with a paddle attachment until pea-sized crumbs form.

Common Questions:

What is the difference between apple crisp and apple crumble?

We often use the term interchangeably and the ingredients are very similar, but technically speaking, an apple crisp has a crunchy crisp topping while an apple crumble has a sandier texture.

Can I make this gluten-free?

Yes, you can replace the flour in the apple filling with corn starch and replace the flour in the topping with 1:1 gluten-free flour.

Can I add cranberries?

Yes; substitute 1 1/2 cup of apples with fresh or frozen cranberries, but add more sugar since cranberries are more tart.

What is the best way to peel apples?

Using an apple peeler is a major time saver. It will peel, core, and slice your apples in seconds.

Plated apple crisp with apples, topping and vanilla ice cream

The best way to serve apple crisp is to spoon a portion onto a plate while it’s still warm and top with a generous scoop of vanilla bean ice cream. The ice cream will melt slightly into the crisp and the combination of flavors is so satisfying.

Make-Ahead:

  • Room Temperature – store apple crisp covered at room temperature for a day but refrigerate leftovers beyond that.
  • To Refrigerate – once apple crisp is at room temperature, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 3-5 days.
  • To Reheat – apple crisp is best served warm. You can reheat the chilled crisp in the microwave just until heated through or reheat in the oven at 350˚F for about 15 minutes.

Ingredients

For the Apple Crisp Filling:

For the Crumb Topping:

Instructions

  1. Prep: Generously Butter a 9×13 casserole dish with 1/2 Tbsp butter. Preheat the oven to 375F.

  2. Peel core and thinly slice apples to 1/4’ thickness. You should have 12 cups of sliced apples. Squeeze 2 Tbsp lemon juice over the apples and toss to coat.

  3. In a separate bowl, stir together 3/4 cup sugar, 3 Tbsp flour, and 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon then sprinkle mixture over apples and toss to combine. Transfer apples into the buttered casserole dish.

  4. Make the topping – in a large bowl, use your hands to stir together flour, oats, brown and granulated sugars, cinnamon, and salt. Add the diced butter and work it into the mixture with your hands until pea-sized crumbs form throughout. Spread topping over apples.

  5. Bake at 375˚F for 45-50 minutes or until the topping is golden and crisp and apples are bubbling at the edges. The center should register above 175˚F.

Recipe Notes

*Golden Delicious, Granny Smith, Honeycrisp, or a combination of any firm, crisp apples will work.
**Use 1 cup sugar or add to taste for tart apples such as Granny Smith.

      Hi Jessica! Thank you for following my recipes. My gluten-free section contains mainly my recipes that do not use gluten, it is not a section dedicated specifically to gluten-free tested recipes. I can see how that is confusing, I apologize. Be sure to read through the comments on my recipes, some of my readers share great feedback on how they turned the recipe gluten-free using substitutions.

    Great Recipe! My family loves it and always cheers when I begin to make the Apple Crisp. Last time my son even wanted to learn how to make this dessert with me.
    I changed it to gluten & dairy free by using corn starch for the filling (1 TB corn starch instead of 3 TB flour), almond flour for the crumble topping, and 1/2 cup coconut oil (room temp) + 1/2 cup vegan butter (cold, chopped into little cubes) instead of butter. I worked this mixture together with my fingers until it was crumbly, smooshing the butter/coconut mix into the dry stuff. Thanks again for a great recipe!

    There must be an error in the recipe. I read the recipe and it says, “1 3/4 cup of flour.” Then, I was just checking the directions and the directions said 3 Tablespoons of flour. Someone commented that the crust came out doughy and I think that is why.

    Hello Natasha,
    I made the apple crisp receipe tonight. The apple part was perfect but for some reason the topping did not work for me.
    It felt like dough. I kept adding flour and oats trying to get it to crumble and ended up with double the topping and still don’t think its right. It felt like there was way too much butter. I am reading it correctly and adding 1 cup of butter, correct?

    Reply

    • Natasha
      January 21, 2022

      Hi Kathy, that is correct but make sure you are crumbling it the way that is recommended in the recipe. Otherwise, if the dough gets too clumpy or overworked, it can seem more like dough than crumbles on top.

        Thanks, Natasha! I did make this with both pears and apples. I sliced the apples as directed in the recipe. I used very firm pears, sliced them twice as thick and tossed them in Wondra flour. I let them stand a few minutes so the flour would coat them before assembling the filling. And I juiced a tangerine as well as added some tangerine zest. It was freaking awesome! Texture was as I would expect for an apple crisp! Fabulous topping. Went over well for a Christmas party dessert

    Bought the apple peeler and love it and your recipe for the apple crumble. Can I prepare the apples as per your recipe but freeze them?

      Hi Dayle, I haven’t tried freezing the apple pie filling so I’m not sure how that would work out.

    Unbelievably good and so easy to make, especially with the help of The Johnny Apple Peeler. Thank you for this delicious recipe. Definitely a new family favourite. Love your videos and your recipes.

    I love how you making baking simple. I am baking gluten free so do you think gf flour in the crumble would work just as well as regular flour?

      Hi Jocelyn, this can be made gluten-free. I have some instructions and tips in the recipe.

    Delicious! Because I was baking for a diabetic, I used Lakanto Monkfruit in place of the white granulated sugar. It worked perfectly…so much so that I’ll use monkfruit in other recipes. Thank you, Natasha, for your joyful videos as well as your amazing recipes!

        I haven’t made this yet, but can I use salted butter? I don’t have the unsalted and feel lazy running to the store. Ha! Thanks😁

          I have not tested this. If you do, I would omit the remainder of the salt in the recipe. Hopefully, it won’t be too overwhelming. Let us know how it turns out if you try it!

            So I used the salted butter and omitted the salt from the recipe. It turned out delicious. Because I used Granny Smith apples, I did put a full cup of sugar in and as you suggested and it was delicious.

    Best apple crisp I ever had!!!
    Throwing my old recipe out as it doesn’t come close to this one. I cut the sugar down to 1/2 cup, but that’s because I used fresh picked apples. They were super sweet to start with. Perfection!!

    Natasha, I would love to make this apple crisp, but I a widow who lives alone. How can I decrease this recipe without spoiling it?

      Hi Rita, yes, you could definitely make a half portion and reduce everything proportionally. If you have a dish that is smaller than a half portion, just reduce everything proportionally and you may need to reduce the bake time slightly until you see bubbling at the edges. In the recipe card, if you click on the number of servings, the recipe will scale up or down for you which will help with figuring out measurements.

      My husband later said we should have turned a $1 bill into $100 – ha! That would have stirred the pot. That combination of flavors sounds really good. Thanks for the suggestion!

    Hi Natasha,
    Your recipes are wonderful, thank you….My family loves Apple Crisp but not my using rolled oats. Is there anything else I can use or are they necessary. Thank you agin for all your help.

      Hi Anne, I always make this with rolled oats, but I suppose you could use a little more flour and maybe even add some chopped pecans to the mixture to add a little more texture.

    Hi Natasha,
    I just made this today!! But the topping didn’t come out crumbly like yours 🙁 It came out in clumps that stuck together. Did I mix them too much with my hands??
    Might you know what I can do to make it crumbly next time??
