Recipe: Easy Apple Crisp Dessert


Summer is almost over and I’m looking forward to the cool, crisp days of Fall. Actually, anything under 90 degrees will be a welcomed change here in Arizona. In the meantime, I’ll be in my kitchen dreaming of Fall with my apple crisp recipe. This is one of the very first recipes that I ever blogged back in the day, and it’s too good to not share. This apple crumble recipe is easy enough for kids to help with. They’ll love peeling the apples and using a pastry cutter to blend the ingredients. A must do for your Fall bucket list.


8 Medium Apples
1 Cup Flour
1 Cup Sugar
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
1/4 Teaspoon Ground Nutmeg
10 Tablespoons Butter


Step 1: Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Step 2: While the oven is preheating, start making the crumble topping. Combine 1 cup of flour, 1 cup sugar, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg in a large mixing bowl.

Step 3: Slice 10 tablespoons of butter and add to the mixing bowl. Use a pastry blender to blend the ingredients together until the consistency is crumbly.

Step 4: Wash, peel and slice apples. Arrange apples inside a baking dish (I used a 1.5 qt round dish) and sprinkle crumble topping on top.

Step 5: Bake at 375 degrees for 50-55 minutes. Stick a fork into one of the apples to make sure that it is tender. Enjoy!
