Top this scrumptious apple crisp with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for a truly memorable dessert. Add walnuts or pecans to this apple crisp or omit the nuts and add more oats.

What You'll Need

  • 3 pounds tart apples, such as Granny Smith
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup rolled oats
  • 4 tablespoons cold butter (1/2 stick)
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans, or add an additional 1/4 cup of oats

How to Make It

  1. Heat the oven to 375 F (190 C/Gas 5).
  2. Peel, core and chop the apples; toss in a bowl with lemon juice.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg; add to the apples and toss to combine.
  4. In another bowl combine the flour, sugar, and oats. Cut butter into 8 small pieces, and cut butter into flour with a pastry blender or two forks until mixture is crumbly. Stir in the chopped nuts.
  1. Butter a 9-inch square baking dish. Spread the apple mixture in the bottom of the baking dish. Sprinkle the flour mixture over the top of the apples.
  2. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 to 45 minutes, or until apples are tender and topping is lightly browned. Check the apples for tenderness with a small, sharp knife. If the topping appears to be browning before the apples are tender, cover the baking dish with foil until the apples are tender.
  3. Serve the apple crisp warm or at room temperature with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a drizzling of heavy cream.
  4. Cover and refrigerate leftovers. Reheat uncovered in a preheated 350 F (180 C/Gas 4) oven.
