Apple Crisp Recipe

Teri & Jenny
A simple and delicious Apple Crisp Recipe with perfectly cooked apples and the most addicting, streusel top! We love serving it warm with big scoops of vanilla ice cream. It's one of our favorite fall desserts!

  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 9 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into small cubes and divided


  • 4 gala apples, peeled, cored and thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom


  • Preheat oven to 375°F. Lightly grease 3 (12 ounce or 6 inch) mini skillets each with 1 tablespoon butter. Set aside.


  • Place oats, flour, sugar, cinnamon, and brown sugar in a mixing bowl and stir together.
  • Cut in butter until a coarse mealy texture forms. Place the bowl in the freezer while making filling, about 10 minutes.

  • Combine all filling ingredients into a large mixing bowl and toss together until thoroughly mixed.


  • Divide filling mixture into prepared skillets and set aside.
  • Remove streusel from freezer. Divide streusel between skillets in an even layer, covering apples.
  • Place crisps onto a baking sheet and bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Cool apple crisps for 7 to 10 minutes before serving (with a scoop of ice cream, which is our favorite way to serve our crisps!)
