The Ultimate Apple Crisp

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Chef Acosta

The best apple crisp I've ever had. Simple and delish. I adapted this recipe from my mom's. It's very easy to make- the hardest part is peeling the apples.

WoW, thank you for the great dessert on a Sunday night! I didn't have any caramel topping, so I left that off. I served this with butter-pecan ice cream, and it was luscious! I'll be making this again, for sure!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Spray a 13" x 9" baking pan with a non-stick spray.
  3. Place the sliced apples in the baking pan. Pour the lemon juice over the apples and mix well so that each apple is covered.
  4. Add the lemon zest and sugar and mix again so that the apples are coated.
  5. In another bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, lemon zest, cinnamon and salt.
  6. Cut the butter into the topping ingredients until crumbly, then pour the topping over the apples.
  7. Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until apples are soft and topping is crispy.
  8. Serve with caramel butterscotch topping and ice cream and enjoy!
