Apple Crisp is one of my favorite fall desserts.  I love the taste of the warm cinnamon-spiced apples with the brown sugar oat crumble with a hot cup of tea. I also love to make it because I usually have all the ingredients on hand, and it bakes in 30 minutes or less.

How to Make Apple Crisp With Brown Sugar Oat Crumble

Apple Crisp - The Midwest Kitchen Blog

Preheat the oven to 375F.

First, peel off the skin of the Granny Smith apples, and take out the cores.

Slice the apples into 1-inch slices, then mix the apples with the organic sugar, vanilla extract, and lemon juice. Place the apples in a circle baking dish.

Apple Crisp ingredients

The Oat Crumble Topping

In a mixing bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, quick-cooking oats, dark brown sugar, melted butter, salt, ground cinnamon, and ground cardamom

  • You could use either quick-cooking oats or rolled oats whatever you have will work great!
  • I love to mix my own brown sugar. Mix regular granulated sugar and blackstrap molasses together until you reach the dark brown sugar color.

Next, spread the oat crumble topping over the apples evenly.
