This is the best apple crisp recipe I'll ever find. It is so much more than a pile of apples, sugar, and spice. My dear friend Bethany passed this lovely recipe down to me when we first became mothers. When we took on the role of nurturers, and tradition makers. Every time I make it, I think of her, and reminisce about what life was like back then. It is such a wonderful tradition my family looks forward to.


  • Filling:
  • 6 Cortland apples
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tsps lemon juice
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/2 tsps cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • Topping:
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • Accompaniment:
  • Churn Free Vanilla Ice Cream



Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.


Peel and cut apples into once inch pieces.


Mix all of the "filling" ingredients gently together in a large bowl, including apples. Transfer to a large baking dish.


Melt butter, and remove from heat.


Gently mix in the "topping" ingredients into the butter, until just combined. You'll want to be careful not to over-mix, so that your topping doesn't become too "doughy."


Distribute the topping evenly onto the apple filling, and bake for one hour. Serve with Churn Free Vanilla Ice Cream, and enjoy!

    This apple crisp dessert looks very delish. I’m wondering if i can replace the flour with more oat meal. I’ll try it this weekend lets see if I get to make it as good as the one in the picture.
