How to Make Apple Crisp

Step 1

First things, first. Choose your apples!

Any apple will do for an apple crisp. As long as they are firm apples they will do the trick. The most important thing is that no apples are wasted, so even if the apples aren’t ideal for a crisp or a pie, give them a try!

After choosing what apples to use, peel them and chop them into small chunks. Place them in a greased 8×8  and sprinkle them with flour and orange juice. Mix until all of the apples are coated in four and juice. Set the apples aside for later.

Step 2

The second step to making the perfect apple crisp is combining the rest of the ingredients you have to make a buttery crumble for your apple crisp topping.

Place oats, flour, cinnamon, sugar, and salt into a bowl. Place softened butter into the bowl and use a fork to cut and combine all of the ingredients until a crumble is formed.

Here’s a tip–> If your butter isn’t quite room temperature, try cutting it into thin squares and then place it in the bowl. From there it should be easier to work with.

Step 3

Finally, pour the crumble topping over the apples and evenly spread the crumble topping over the apples. Place apple crisp in the oven and bake for 40 minutes at 375ºF.

Remove the crumble when the crumble topping is of your desired golden brown consistency!
