How to make Cinnamon Apple Crisp
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
First you will need to fill your baking pan with apples. Make sure to peel, core and slice your apples first. After I peel the apples, I like to use an apple corer/slicer. The slicer I use cuts the apple into sixteen evenly sliced pieces. If you do not use a slicer, be sure to cut your apple slices evenly. This will ensure the apples bake evenly and you won’t have some over or under baked slices.
Once you’ve prepped your apples, place them in your baking pan and sprinkle cinnamon over top of them. I like to mix the apples up after sprinkling the cinnamon over top. This will help distribute the cinnamon throughout all of the sliced apples.
Next, in a mixing bowl, combine the oatmeal, flour, brown sugar, white sugar and butter. Once these ingredients are mixed thoroughly, pour over top of the apples. Spread the topping mixture evenly over the apples.
Place in your already preheated oven until done, a nice golden brown.
Once this delicious dessert is done baking, serve warm either by itself or à la mode with a heaping scoop of your favorite vanilla ice cream. Enjoy!!
How to make Apple Crisp Topping
In a mixing bowl, combine the oatmeal, flour, brown sugar, white sugar and butter. Once these ingredients are mixed thoroughly, pour over top of the apples. Spread the topping mixture evenly over the apples.
Which apples are best for making Apple Crisp?
You can use whatever type of apple you want, but personally, I prefer to use Granny Smith apples. The Granny Smith apples are great for baking because of their firmness. They also add a nice bit of tartness to this already sweet dessert.
Some other apples you could use include, Gala, Red Delicious, Fuji or Jonagold. Whatever apple you do chose, make sure it is a firm one though. Softer apples tend to turn mushy when baked.

Do I have to refrigerate leftovers? Or will they keep out on the counter?
You can, but you do not need to refrigerate any leftover Apple Crisp. This recipe will stay fresh at room temperature for about three to four days. If you don’t think your family will finish the apple crisp in couple days, I would recommend refrigerating it, just to be safe. No matter which way you store your leftovers, make sure to cover tightly with aluminum foil or plastic wrap though. I have also heard of some people placing a paper towel over the leftover Apple Crisp before covering with foil or plastic wrap, this helps absorb moisture and helps prevent your Apple Crisp form becoming overly soggy.
Can you freeze Easy Apple Crisp?
Yes, you can. Before you freeze I, make sure the Apple Crisp has cooled completely and then place in an airtight container. After frozen, your Apple Crisp should keep in the freezer for up to three months. When you are ready to use your frozen Apple Crisp, make sure it thaws completely. You can then reheat all of the leftovers in the oven at 350 degrees for ten to fifteen minutes or individual servings for about forty-five seconds in the microwave. Another way to freeze this recipe, is to freeze it before you actually bake it. Once you mix the topping ingredients together, you can freeze them for a few months. Make sure to completely thaw before putting on top of your apples when ready to make this recipe.
How do you make Apple Crisp Recipe crisper?
I use butter to give my apple crisp topping that wonderful crisp texture. The butter, in combination with the oats and flour bake together to form that crisp tender consistency that resembles pie crust. You can use shortening instead of butter if you’d like.
Can Apple Crisp with oatmeal be made ahead and baked later?
Yes, you can make the full apple crisp recipe ahead of time and either refrigerate or freeze, to bake later. When you’re ready to bake it, thaw it on the countertop for 30 minutes, then proceed with the recipe as stated above.
Do you have to peel apples for Apple Crisp Recipe?
You do not have to peel apples for apple crisp, but I prefer the texture of peeled apples more. Peeling apples is quick & simple! I just use a potato peeler and peel the whole apple before coring and slicing it. If you decide not to peel the apples, that’s fine! The apple peel will soften as it’s baked and as a bonus, there are a lot of vitamins and nutrients in the apple peel!
Can Apple Crisp with oatmeal be made with quick oats?
Yes, you can use quick oats to make apple crisp. I prefer using old fashioned oats because I think the texture of the apple crisp topping is better with old fashioned oats. I like to keep a small container of both old fashioned oats and quick oats in my pantry, however, in a pinch I have used quick oats in place of old fashioned.
With just a few simple ingredients, you will be enjoying this delicious, mouth watering baked apple dessert in no time at all. This apple crisp with oatmeal makes an incredible apple crisp filling and apple crisp topping that will not be forgotten.
