Apple Crisp #SundaySupper

Apple Crisp bakes in its own juices topped with a buttery crumb crust. Serve warm or cold.


Apple Crisp was my Mom’s go to dessert. I’m proud to share her recipe with you today as Sunday Supper celebrates Mom’s favorite recipes.

I grew up eating a lot of apple crisp. We always seemed to have some around for several reasons.
First, it’s fast to prepare and easy to make.
Second, we always had flour, sugar, butter or margarine and cinnamon in the house.
Third, our neighbor’s grew several apple trees out back and we were always welcomed to pick some.

My Mom had a terrible sweet tooth. Sometimes the neighbor’s tart McIntosh apples wouldn’t cut it for her crisp. Red Delicious were her choice.
Now if you ever baked with Red Delicious apples you know where I’m going.
Sugar rush for sure!

So I recommend a less sweet but firm apple like the new cross varieties derived from Gala, Honeycrisp, Fuji and McIntosh.

I also prefer mine as a deep dish version with a thick crust. I use an 8x6x2 inch glass dish. It’s like a deep dish apple crumb pie without the crust! 😉

    I like that I can peel or not peel the apples, Cindy. That sure speeds up the process. Also, deep dish is definitely the way to go. Looks lovely!
