Apple Crisp

A few weekends ago, when I visited my mother-in-law, not only did she teach me how to make applesauce using a food mill, she also showed me how to make her version of apple crisp. We made it together and it was so amazing. I brought this recipe home and made it for my cousin's wedding rehearsal dinner and for my family in general. Everyone loves this recipe and my mom specifically asked for me to put the recipe here. Now, as mentioned, lately my recipes have been catered to fit her pre-diabetic diet. I will list the original recipe and the substitutions I use for my mom to make it little healthier. Of course, the best way to serve apple crisp is warmly out of the oven with a dollop of vanilla ice cream! Happy fall!


  • 8-10 apples, peeled, cored, and sliced 
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup cold butter (1/2 cup for a healthier dessert)
  • 3/4 cup flour (whole wheat for healthier version)
  • 1 cup oatmeal (don't use quick oats for a healthier version)
  • 1.5 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  2. Peel, core and slice the apples
  3. Slice the butter into about 1/2 inch slices
  4. In a mixing bowl, combine all ingredients except for the apples
  5. Cut butter into the other ingredients or just put your hands into the mixture and squeeze the butter into small pellets with the dry ingredients. Eventually the topping will combine well.
  6. Layer the sliced apple pieces on the bottom of an 9x13 pan
  7. Sprinkle the topping over the apples
  8. Place into oven for 45 minutes
  9. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream
