Delicious Apple Crisp For Your Hectic Holiday Season

My favorite time of the year – Thanksgiving to Christmas – is always super hectic with gifts, decorations, and family gatherings, but one of my favorite ways to decompress and make something delicious is baking! I love to bake everything, from cookies to chocolate pretzels to ice cream cakes to fruit tarts. One recipe that I make every year, especially around the holidays, is my apple crisp recipe. You can also use it for any fruit you want, but I’ll focus on apples in this one 


  • 4 to 6 medium, peeled, cored, and sliced tart apples
  • 3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup oatmeal
  • 3/4 tsp. cinnamon
  • 3/4 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1/3 cup softened butter


  • Preheat the oven to 375.
  • Butter the square baking pan you will use.
  • Mix a little extra cinnamon and the sliced apples together in a big bowl.
  • Mix the rest of the ingredients together in another bowl (you can use your clean hands!) until it’s crumbly.
  • Pour the apples into the pan.
  • Sprinkle the mixture over the apples.
  • Bake for 30 minutes, or until the apples are tender and the topping is golden brown.

Enjoy! ;)
