Apple Pie Crisp

The end of apple season is drawing near; better use the good ones up quickly! When I thought of this dessert, I had initially meant to fill it with raspberry or strawberry jam, but I couldn’t let all of  the apples on my counter go to waste. This treat is similar to an apple pie, but with an apple crisp topping to make it even sweeter. I didn’t want a recipe that required me to keep the oven on for an hour, waiting for the apples to bake. Instead I tried boiling them, which turned out great!

Apple Pie Crisp

For the Crust:

2 C Flour

2/3 C Powdered Sugar

1 1/2 Sticks Butter

4 Tbsp Milk

For the Filling:

2 Apples, cubed

1 Tsp Vanilla

1/2 C Brown Sugar

Cinnamon, Nutmeg, and Chai Spice to your taste

For the Topping:

1 1/2 C Flour

4 Tbsp Butter

1/2 C Oats

1/4 C Brown Sugar


Make the crust:

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Stir the flour and powdered sugar together. Cut the butter into the flour mixture using a pastry blender or fork. Add the milk a tablespoon at a time until a soft dough forms.

Press the dough into a greased pan of your choice. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until golden.

Make the Filling:

Boil a medium pot of water, and add the cubed apples. Let boil for 3-4 minutes, then drain the water. Stir in vanilla, brown sugar, cinnamon. Add nutmeg and chai spice if you wish.

Scoop the filling into the crust.

Prepare the Topping:

Stir together flour, brown sugar, and oats. Cut the 4 tbsp of butter into the mixture using a pastry blender or fork. Crumble the topping over the apples, and press down lightly.

Bake for another 25-30 minutes.

Let cool completely, then top with whipped cream or ice cream if you’d like!
