One of my family’s favourite desserts is Apple Crisp. It’s something that is super easy to whip up and is always a winner. I also have a lot of great memories wrapped up in it since it was something I learned to make watching my grandma when I was younger. Because of the simplicity of the recipe, she would make this while we were out at our cabin. Anyway, I wanted to share this Apple Crisp recipe just because I love it so much. The apples and spices make this a great fall recipe, but you can do this up any time of the year.

Making the Crisp:

Just like with any recipe I make that contains apples, I like to use more than one type, but this recipe will work with just about any kind of apple you like. Usually, I use a mixture of Granny Smith and Gala because they are great together. If you want to do something different, you can replace the apples with 4 cups of blueberries and have great results. I usually do a Blueberry Crisp in the summer when I can get my hands on fresh wild blueberries. The crisp topping is super easy to make, and if you want to make a more gluten-free version, you can replace the flour with ground almonds.

For baking, I like to use an 8×8 glass dish, but you can use a 9-inch glass pie dish or any deep baking dish that you may have. Just make sure it isn’t too large, or you will only have a small layer of apples. It is important to remember that apples shrink when they cook. So it might look like you have a ton of apples, but it’ll be more reasonable once it is cooked. I think the best part of this dessert is that you can top it with ice cream (I like a caramel ripple type ice), or whipped cream, or nothing at all.

There isn’t a lot to say about this recipe since it is extremely easy to make and incredibly tasty. I hope you enjoy one of our family’s favourite desserts. Good Luck and Happy Baking.
