Mom’s Apple Crisp

A delicious recipe for crispy apple is not lacking in any American kitchen. Each family has their favorite Apple Crisp recipe , some using oatmeal or other whole grains, and others mixing white sugar with brown sugar. And since Apple Crisp is one of my favorite desserts, I have experimented with all recipes! But every time I return to my mother’s recipe : simple, fast, and delicious. The dessert is always perfectly crispy , very sweet but with the perfect touch of acidity thanks to green apples.

To better enjoy with this delicious apple crisp you should eat it warm with vanilla ice cream . And spend your money on good vanilla ice cream — the vanilla imitation tastes nothing like it and this dessert deserves the best!


Apple crisp (or apple crumble) is a super easy and delicious recipe. With a scoop of vanilla ice cream and it’s the perfect dessert for fall!

  • 6 large apples
  • 200 g (1 cup) sugar
  • 3/4 cup (90 g) flour
  • 80 g (1/3 cup) butter (at room temperature)
  • 60 ml (1/4 cup) of water
  • 5 ml (1 teaspoon) of cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon (2.5 ml) salt


  1. Preheat oven to 180 ° C (350 ° F)
  2. Peel the apples and cut them into medium pieces. About 10 pieces per apple is normal. (If they are too small pieces, they lose texture and become pureed … and they are too big, they are hard and dry.)
  3. Place the pieces on a baking sheet (20 × 20). Pour the water over the top evenly, followed by the cinnamon and salt.
  4. In a small bowl mix the flour and sugar. Add the butter and mash with a fork until I was more or less a paste but with a lot of crumbs too.
  5. Spread the mixture over the apples.
  6. Bake for about 40 minutes, until the apples are caramelising and are completely browned on top.

The crispy apple is that easy. In less than 1 hour you have a fantastic dessert! The Apple Crisp will never disappoint you … good for special occasions, sad days, or when you just need something sweet!
