Homemade apple crisp is one of our family’s all time favorite recipes! The tasty base of sliced honeycrisp apples combined with lemon, brown sugar and spices is topped with the most delicious crumbly crisp ever – flour, rolled oats, brown sugar, cinnamon and butter – then baked to perfection! Drizzle with caramel sauce and top with vanilla ice cream and dig right in!



For the apple filling:

  • 6 large honeycrisp apples, cored and sliced into 1/4″ thick slices
  • juice of 1.5 lemons
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 6 tablespoons flour
  • 1.5 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice
  • 3 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • a few pinches Kosher salt

For the crisp topping:

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup old fashioned roll oats
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • large pinch of Kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup butter, cubed and cold


  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees and lightly grease a 9×13 baking dish.
  2. Add sliced apples to a large bowl and squeeze lemon juice over them. Then add remaining filling ingredients to the bowl and use your hands to toss the apples and evenly coat them in the spice mixture.
  3. Dump apples into the greased baking dish.
  4. In a medium bowl, combine crisp ingredients. Use your hands, a fork or a pastry cutter to combine ingredients and gently break butter up into pea size pieces.
  5. Spread topping in an even layer across the apples.
  6. Bake for 30 minutes or until the apples are fork tender and the crisp is a dark golden brown.
