One of my favorite desserts growing up was my Mom’s Apple Crisp. When I married my husband he fell in love with it too. It’s sweet with a hint of tart. My husband likes it warm with a side of ice cream. I like it cooled down when the topping has “crisped.”
This Apple Crisp does not have oats in it, which is one of the reasons I like it. I enjoy a hot steaming bowl of oatmeal and a nice streusel on a Dutch Apple Pie but I prefer my Crisp like this.
My grandparents proudly owned an apple orchard in Washington state. We lived next door to them until I was 7, so I was surrounded by apples. I spent many days following behind my grandpa while he did his work. I learned about smudge pots and frost warnings before I could tie my shoes. It was a huge place full of mysteries and many places to hide.
As you can imagine, apples were a large part of our lives. We ate apple pie, apple juice, applesauce, applesauce cake, apples, apples, apples, apples! Even now my kitchen and dining room are decorated with apples.
For apples that hold up their shape and have a good taste when baking, I recommend Jonathans and Jonagolds, Honeycrisps, Granny Smiths, Braeburns, and Galas. Don’t be afraid to mix them up either. You’ll create a vivid new taste for your mouth!
Mom’s Apple Crisp
- 7-8 Medium Apples peeled, cored & sliced
- 1/2 - 1 Cup Sugar
- 1 Tablespoon Cinnamon
- 1 Cup Sugar
- 1 2/3 Cups Butter
- 1 1/2 Cups Flour
- Preheat oven to 350° F. Add sliced apples to pan. I use a smaller 7"x11" baking dish. This fills the apples to the top of the pan.
- Sprinkle sugar & cinnamon on top of the apples. I use a full cup of sugar but they might be too sweet for some people.
- Mix the flour and 1 cup sugar together. Cut the butter into the mixture using a pastry mixer or a fork. The mixture should end up looking crumbly. Add the mixture to the top of the apples.
- Bake uncovered for 45-60 minutes, until topping is crisp. Can be served warm with ice cream.
Yum. My kids LOVE apples and we always have apples in the house for them to eat. Would love if you shared this on Merry Monday Linky Party this Sunday at 6pm PST.

Looks delicious, Stacy! In Virginia, late summer and early fall are when our apples are plentiful. Pinned for using later!
Thank you Blair! I hope you enjoy :)
Your childhood sounds so fun! I love the idea of growing up on an apple orchard ~ Kid heaven! :) I don’t think i’ve had apple crisp without oats, but I’ll try this!

I love this, my grandparents had so many fruit trees. Great memories going to visit & getting to pick fruit (apples were my favorite). And I love apple crisp (peach is good too) ;-)
Thanks for sharing & linking up at the Tasty Tuesday link up
It’s a special feeling getting to pick your own fruit. I wish more people had the opportunity! :)
I was just thinking that I had quite a few apples that I seem to be having lack of eaters ;) I was thinking it was dessert time for them. This looks yum! Thanks for linking at The Yuck Stops Here. We hope to see you again next week!
My husband and daughter swear they’re going to eat the apples up and it never happens. This is a fun way to use them up!
YUM! We like apple crisp around here, and mixing up different apples makes it that much better. :) Thanks for stopping by and sharing this on Five Friday Finds! I’m looking forward to what you share this week. :)
