Thinly sliced Empire apples baked with a cinnamon glaze and oatmeal crumb topping. The PERFECT Apple Crisp recipe for the apple lovers!
One of my husband’s most favorite desserts is Apple Crisp. He starts talking about it as soon as the weather starts to chill and it is a must-have throughout the fall and winter at my house. Warm, comforting and absolutely delicious, this apple crisp recipe has the perfect ratio of apples to crispy topping. I spent years searching for the best recipe I could find and I finally found it. It really is The Best Apple Crisp Recipe!
Apple Crisp is so easy to put together and is one of those recipes that most people probably have on hand. Like most baked apple recipes, you’ll want to use flavorful and firm apples — Empire apples are our go-to. It’s also nice to combine two varieties. In my recipe, I used Empire apples but you can use Gala or Braeburn.
This apple crisp recipe works great prepared a day in advance, for busy holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas. In Western countries, Apple Crips is usually prepared as part of a Thanksgiving menu, to serve to guests, or at home with your own family! Our favorite way to serve this is warm out of the oven, on its own or topped with vanilla ice cream. It does warm up beautifully, so it makes for perfect leftovers or midnight snacks! In case you are wondering, my favourite way of eating this dessert is in the morning with a cup of warm coffee, I am drooling right now!!!
