Easy Apple Crisp – The “No-Fuss” Alternative to Apple Pie

This easy apple crisp goes together in minutes to create that homemade apple pie flavor without the work. Delicious served warm with vanilla ice cream.

This easy apple crisp recipe is a “no-fuss” alternative to apple pie. I prefer to use a firm, tart apple, like Granny Smith, or in our case, the mystery apples from the wild apple tree growing on the fence line. Any apple will do – the filling will just get softer with a softer apple. During apple season, this is one of our “go to” desserts. It’s simple enough that the boys can make it themselves. (They still haven’t completely mastered rolling out pie crust neatly.)

If you prefer a less sweet dessert, cut the sugar to 1/2 cup, or substitute 1/4 cup of honey. (Honey will be more likely to brown faster, so you may wish to lower the temperature 5-10 degrees.) Want a little more spice? Double up on the cinnamon, or add a little nutmeg, cardamom or ginger. The recipe can easily be doubled and baked in a 9×13 baking dish. I prefer glass bakeware, if available, for slow and even cooking.

Tips to Keep Apples from Browning

To keep the apples from browning, place cut apples into cool water with lemon juice. Use about 1/4 cup lemon juice per 4-6 cups of water. You may also salt water (1 tablespoon salt per 6 cups water) or citric acid in water (1 teaspoon citric acid per 4-6 cups water). I fill my 8 cup Pyrex measuring cup about two-thirds full with lemon water, and place the apple slices in as they are prepared. Once the apples are done, I drain them and move them to the pan. Then I use the big measuring cup to mix the topping.
