Party must be able to predict the future, well, at least mine, because this past weekend a friend dropped off a bushel of apples! After reading through your wonderful ideas and strongly debating on making those scrumptious apple and brie nachos, I opted for a traditional, exceptionally tasty apple crisp!
Like crumbles, crisps are very easy to make and require little prep work. For an extra crunchy texture, I added old-fashioned oats and freshly roasted walnuts to my crisp. Crisps are a delightful alternative to the classic, time-consuming holiday pie and are easily adaptable to include a variety of fruits. Whatever fruit you choose, always serve warm with a large dollop of whipped cream! Get started on your own and


Apple Crisp

Apple Crisp


  1. 2 pounds of apple, peeled, cored, and chopped
  2. 1 lemon, juiced
  3. 1/2 cup flour
  4. 1/4 cup brown sugar
  5. 1/4 cup sugar
  6. 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  7. 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
  8. 1/4 teaspoon cardamon
  9. 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
  10. Pinch of salt
  11. 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
  12. 1/2 cup walnuts roasted and coarsely chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Chop apples into slices or bite-size pieces. In a bowl coat the apples with fresh lemon juice to prevent any discoloration.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamon, oats, and salt.
  3. Add the butter and walnuts to the flour-oatmeal mixture. Stir until the mixture resembles coarse sand. For me its easiest to use my fingers to combine the butter and oats.
  4. Butter a deep baking pan. Place the apples on the bottom and gently pack the crisp mixture on top.
  5. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until apples are cooked and topping has browned. Serve warm with a dollop of whipped cream.

Serves 8-10.
