Easy Apple Crisp is a classic fall favorite filled with crisp apples, cinnamon, butter and sugar and topped with vanilla ice cream.
Fall is my favorite time of year! I love everything about it; harvest, baking and the turning leaves. We always take a trip to the apple orchard and I can’t ever get this apple crisp made fast enough. We also love to make homemade applesauce. It is one of those dishes that will forever be etched into my brain, the memories making it with my mom and eating it when visiting my aunts. Don’t mind me while I go grab a bag from the freezer.
This recipe came from a favorite cookbook of mine that was created as a fundraiser by dairy farmers. Cathy is a wonderful person and great cook, we also love her Loaded Baked Potato Soup!
Easy Apple Crisp
The perfect apple crisp starts by choosing the right type of apple. Apples are often categorized in three different areas of use, cooking, baking or eating. My friend Stacy from The Backroad Life has a post about What Apples are Best for What Recipes that I always look at before heading to the orchard. I decided on Granny Smith apples for this recipe and they were the perfect combination of tart and sweet and they hold their shape for baking!
This recipe makes an 8 x 8 inch dish. You can double this recipe for a 9 x 13 inch version. I don’t trust myself with the bigger one but would be a must if making for company! 😉
