Apple Crisp

This is my favorite recipe for apple crisp. The original recipe is from, however I made a few changes to the ingredients and amounts. Using granny smith apples keeps the taste slightly tart, but the topping sweetens it up just enough. Be sure to use cooled butter and not to over-mix in order to achieve a crisp, crumbly topping. You are sure to enjoy this recipe with or without a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top!


4 cups sliced granny smith apples
1-2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
slightly less than 1/2 cup water
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup flour

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease an 8x8 inch baking dish.
  • Place apples in prepared dish. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Pour water over all.
  • In a bowl, mix together the sugars and butter, creating a crumbly mixture. Blend in flour. Sprinkle mixture evenly over apples. Sprinkle with additional cinnamon, if desired.
  • Bake in preheated oven 30 to 40 minutes, until apples are tender and crust is golden. Enjoy!

Thanks for the recipe! I really needed something a little healthier for my dad this year per his request.
