This is the crisp my mom always made when I was growing up. We like it with vanilla ice cream on top--yummm! You can also make it with peaches instead of apples, although I'd suggest reducing or omitting the cinnamon and increasing the nutmeg when making peach crisp. I like to prepare it while dinner is cooking, then pop it in the oven to bake while we eat dinner. When dinner's over--voila! Hot apple or peach crisp, all ready to serve!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350* F. Coat an 8x12 inch glass baking dish with nonstick spray. Place sliced apples (or peach slices) in pan.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and egg with a fork until crumbly. Sprinkle evenly over apples.
  3. Pour melted butter over flour mixture. Sprinkle cinnamon and nutmeg on top.
  4. Bake at 350* F for 30-40 minutes or until topping is cooked through and golden and apples are bubbling. Serve hot, with ice cream if desired.

Delicious! I butchered your recipe and made it for one person!! No one else will eat cooked fruit. But despite my adjustments, your recipe came out perfectly. I would add more cinnamon and nutmeg to the top, but that is the only change I would make. I also had no ice cream, but with it this recipe would be heaven! Thanks so much for posting! Made for photo tag!

This season our apple tree is getting a workout every couple of days. This recipe is foolproof! Adding a bit of allspice and cloves to the cinnamon was wonderful.

This was so easy and tasted great. I had a lot of apples that needed to be used so decided to make this(I had also chosen this for one of the tag games I am playing). Everyone loved it and I loved that it was not loaded with sugar(I used 1/3 of a cup) but was still sweet. I also ended up using wheat flour instead of regular and it still turned out great.
