Before You Dive In – Prep: please read!

  • Wash, core and peel (optional) apples
  • Cut apples into uniform sized pieces about 1/2″ – 1″ (1.25-2.5 cm)
  • Move oven rack to center
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (177 C)
  • Grease 8×8″ pan with non-stick spray, butter or our baking Goop

Make crisp!

Step 1: In a small bowl, mix together the sugar and spices.

Step 2: Add chopped apples to the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle the lemon juice and stir. Sprinkle the sugar and spice blend and stir to combine. Set aside.

Step 3: In a medium bowl, add brown sugar, oats and cinnamon. Stir to combine. Add the vanilla and stir. Add the flour and salt. Stir to combine.

Step 4: Grate the cold butter directly into the bowl and use your hands to combine and knead the butter into the dry blend. The topping will become thick and chunky. Use your hands to evenly drop blobs of topping over the apples. You will have enough to cover the surface.

Step 5: Bake in the center of a preheated 350 F/177 C oven for 40-50 minutes, until golden brown and bubbly. Place pan on a cooling rack and serve warm with ice cream and/or caramel sauce.

Crisp is best eaten warm. Refrigerate covered for up to three days and gently reheat before serving.
