When we say this dessert is the simplest treat to make, we mean it. This easy fruit crisp can be made all year long. Just substitute in any seasonal fruit to make this dessert one of a kind. Since apples are in peak, we thought it would be the perfect time to make a stunning fruit crisp with freshly picked apples. Granny might have told you that you're the apple of her eye, but in reality, you're probably second to her most adored Apple Crisp. This easy as pie fruit crisp is fool-proof and perfect for beginner bakers. It infuses sweet and tart flavors with a blend of roasted apples and a heavenly crumbly mixture. For an irresistible combination, we suggest using Granny Smith and Gala apples. This quick and indulgent dessert tastes best with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. Make this easy Apple Crisp for all of your last-minute holiday gatherings. We stand behind the old saying 'an apple (crisp) a day keeps the doctors away'—we just made a sweet Southern adjustment.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350`F. Place fruit in a lightly sprayed 9" x 13" baking dish. Set aside.

  • In the bowl of a food processor, combine half of the butter pieces, half of the sugar and half of the flour; process until mixture resembles coarse meal. Pour mixture into a large bowl, and repeat process with remaining butter, flour and sugar. Combine mixtures in the bowl and press mixture with your hands to form clumps of dough. Sprinkle dough over fruit in the baking dish, crumbling over fruit in an even layer. Leave some larger pieces with the smaller ones, to make a nice crumbled topping.

  • Place dish in the preheated oven and bake for 35-45 minutes, or until topping is golden brown and lightly crisped, and fruit is hot and bubbly. Cool slightly before serving, and top with ice cream or whipped cream.
