Annie’s Apple Crisp

This is comfort food taken to a delicious new level! Apple crisp is filling and satisfying, and it’s a wonderful way to show off the body and flavor of hearty culinary apples. Some cooks will decide to leave the skins on the apples instead of peeling them; remember, that’s where the antioxidants are, plus a lot of the apple’s vitamin C.




  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Coat an 9×9-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  3. Combine flour, oatmeal, sugars, and spices into a bowl. Blend well.
  4. Cut in the butter using a pastry blender (or two knives) until the mixture is crumbly.
  5. Combine the apples, juice, and (optional) cranberries in another bowl.
  6. Once well-mixed, put the apple mixture into the baking dish.
  7. Sprinkle the crumb mixture over the apples.
  8. Cover the dish with foil and bake for 30 minutes.
  9. Remove the foil and bake for another 20 minutes, until the apples are golden brown.
  10. Serve with ice cream or whipped cream.
