1-2-3 Apple Crisp

"You can also use this tantalizing recipe to make peach crisp (which I HIGHLY recommend.) Very easy and delightful. At its best when served hot. Use fresh fruit whenever possible."

  1. This was an excellent apple crisp. I chose it because it served 8 instead of 4 or 6, but I will make it again because it was so good. The flavors were jusr right and I liked that it wasn't syrupy. The fresh apple taste came through clearly. I used 7 large apples and it made 10 - 12 large servings for me. . Thanks so much!
  2. This is good, but I'm embarrassed to say I would have preferred cinnamon only, rather than the cinnamon/nutmeg mix here. I have enjoyed these same two spices in these proportions in a quick bread, so expected to like them here, too. The apple crisp is also quite sweet - this may have been my fault for not allowing for the sweetness of the fuji apples I used. Thank you for helping me define my preferences.
  3. Out of all the apple crisp recipes I've tried, this is the BEST!!!!!!! Great fruit to topping ratio and the topping came out nice and crunchy and the apples weren't mushy. This is the only apple crisp recipe I will use from now on!!!!!
  4. Excellent! Made this with apples and we loved it. The perfect amount of topping. Makes a large pan, therefore an excellent way to clear out the beat up apples from my apple drawer. Looking forward to the peach version next. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
  5. I have made quite a few different apple crisp recipes and this one wins! Crispy, crunchy topping, not too sweet, not soupy or runny. Perfect. We ate it warm with whipped cream on top. Delicious!


  1. Add 1/2 tsp salt to flour and oats mixture
  2. Try 1/2 the sugar - way too sweet
  3. Only difference is that we made them in individual aluminum bowls and plastic wrapped them when warm so the plastic wrap adhered better to the dessert.


<p>I have been married to my amazing husband for 8 wonderful years. We added a baby boy to the mix in March '08 with another just added March '10. We have two adorable rescue dogs, a chihuahua/min pin mix and a yorkie/westie mix. I have been an ovo-lacto vegetarian for 14 years. <br /> <br />After moving to our fourth state in a year, we have finally settled in Texas. I don't know how I like all the rain and the human-sized bugs, but we really enjoy the area we have chosen to live in. Being a vegetarian in this part of the country is HARD. No one quite gets it. <br /> <br />I love testing my zaar recipes on DH. When he loves something he exclaims, Where did you get this recipe?!? and of course, my answer is always the same. <br /> <br /><img src=http://www.enviro-tote.com/imagesNew/stockart/bannerVeggie.gif alt= /> <br /> <br />My ratings system: <br />5***** <br /> I would glady serve this to guests, or make it and secretly eat it all by myself. <br />4**** <br /> Great recipe. Liked enough to print out and place in my permanent cookbook. <br />3*** <br /> Recipe not quite for me, but others might like it. Could be more to my liking with a few modifications. <br />2** <br /> Didn't like. Possible ingredient errors in recipe. Probably wouldn't use again. <br />1* <br /> Really didn't like. Would never use again. <br /> <br />#NOTE# <br />If I review any recipes containing meat, it is a recipe I prepared and DH reviewed. <br /> <br /><img src=http://www.enviro-tote.com/imagesNew/stockart/bannerVeggie.gif alt= /> <br /> <br />Little Italy, San Diego <br /><img src=http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e342/hadice/Cool/LittleItaly.jpg alt= /> <br /> <br /><img src=http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/berriesblinkie.gif alt= /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/untitled_1.jpg alt= /> <br /> <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/200_artistrichardneuman-art-prints_.jpg alt= /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/untitled.jpg alt= /><img src=http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a132/tgifford/Game%20Room%20Banners/AM%20Banners/KBparticipation.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /> <br /><img src=http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3316/3345270671_dd30334798.jpg alt= /><img src=http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/AMpageSticker.jpg alt= /> <br /> <br /><img src=http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/Aug09PaperSwapSticker.jpg alt= /> <br /> <br /><img src=http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j166/ZaarNicksMom/Animation6.gif alt= /> <br /> <br /><img src=http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j166/ZaarNicksMom/PACsticker-Adopted.jpg alt= /> <br /> <br /><img src=http://i16.photobucket.com/albums/b2/kiwidutch/my3chefs2009final-1.jpg alt= /></p>
