Mom’s Homemade Apple Crisp

There are many fond childhood memories that I have, and baking with my Mom is definitely top on my list. Beginning with Fall Baking all the way through the holidays, we would spend time baking up special treats to enjoy for a big family Sunday dinner or just have during the week.

This Homemade Apple Crisp is one of her recipes. Add a big scoop of vanilla ice cream and a drizzle of caramel and there is nothing better!

Apples are topped with a combination of oats, brown sugar, flour and spices and combined with butter to make the crumble topping. There are hundreds of apple varieties, this time I used Granny Smith but I also like using Honey Crisp.

You can see many varieties in our Guide to Apples and their Uses.

    In our family, this dessert is called English Apple Pie, a recipe my mother learned during WW II ration days. It is so simple to make and can be varied with raisins or dried cranberries added with the apples; shredded cheese and/or finely chopped nuts added with the crumb topping; marshmallows spread over the topping and lightly browned.

    Happy to find this recipe. I have made apple crisp for years, but it’s always been one of those throw it all in without measuring, then sometimes it’s good, sometimes it’s ok. Making this tonight.

  3. how can i make this recipie into a 13’9

    1. Hi Kathryn, you can easily double the recipe to fit a 13×9 pan. You may need to bake it longer, when the apples are tender and the crust is bubbling, then it’s done.
      Happy Baking!
