Old Fashioned Apple Crisp

Old Fashioned Apple Crisp

Last weekend we went apple picking with the girls to Carter Mountain Orchard here in Virginia. We had a great time walking between all the apple trees and learning about the different kind of apples. 

We brought home Golden Delicious and Granny Smith! 2 bags of them!! 

Dave wanted to make something related to fall, so he decided to make Apple Crisp! 

He searched a lot because he wanted to make it the old fashion way!  and we found this recipe online: at this website

Changes he made; we didn't have enough butter, so he added corn oil and it was perfect! 

Here are the result!

**What we changed; we didn't have enough butter, so we use a bit of corn oil.

  • 6 golden delicious apples, peeled and chopped (other varieties can be used, can also be sliced)
  • 2 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 3/4 tsp ground cinnamon, divided
  • 1 1/2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup old fashioned oats
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cold unsalted butter, diced into small cubes
  • pinch of kosher salt


  • Preheat oven to 350 F degrees.  Butter an 8x8 baking dish, or spray with non-stick cooking spray.  Set aside.
  • In a mixing bowl, add chopped apples, granulated sugar, 3/4 tsp of the cinnamon and lemon juice.  Stir to combine, then transfer to prepared baking dish.
  • In a separate mixing bowl, add topping ingredients (brown sugar, oats, flour, 1 tsp cinnamon, salt, and diced cold butter).  Use a pastry cutter to cut the butter into the oat mixture, using a slight downward twisting motion, until mixture resembled pea-sized crumbs.  Alternatively, you can use two forks or even your hands to cut butter into the mixture.
  • Spread topping over apples in baking dish, and gently pat to even it out.  Bake 40-50 minutes, until golden brown and bubbly.
  • Serve warm and enjoy!


Note that all ovens bake differently, so yours may take a little less or a little more time to bake.
