An apple crisp is a sweet tray of apples, cinnamon, sugar, and oats baked together into a heavenly mass. This recipe will save you during any rainy day. With its soft-cooked apples and cinnamon seasoning, the flavors all come together to make this the best dessert.


  • 12 1/2 cups all-purpose apples, peeled, cored and sliced
  • 1 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 ¾  tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1 ¼ tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup and 2 tbsp of water
  • 1 ¼ cup quick-cooking oats
  • 1 ¼  cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 ¼ cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Put the sliced apples in a large pan. I used a 9×13 inch pan. Then mix the white sugar, 1 tbsp flour, and ground cinnamon together in another bowl and sprinkle over the apples. Evenly distribute the water over the apples.  
  3. In a separate mixing bowl, combine the oats, 1 cup of flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and melted butter. When it’s combined, sprinkle the mixture over the apples.
  4. Put the pan of apples in the oven and cook for 45 minutes.
  5. Wait for it to cool and enjoy!
