Looking for a dessert that’s easy to make but tastes indulgent? Don’t let the simplicity of this Apple Crisp fool you, it tastes like it took you hours to prepare.
Even though I grew up in southwest Michigan, I really feel like I have two hometowns. The other is Indianapolis, Indiana. If you have never been there, you should really put it on your list of places to see. Even though it may seem to be in the middle of nowhere, it is far from boring. It has so many things to do and places to eat and awesome activities for kids. The Indianapolis Zoo is one of the best I’ve been to and I can’t wait to visit and take my son to the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis. I’m very thankful that my daughter Cassidy was able to grow up there. I lived there for 10 years and when I moved to Florida three years ago “for looooooove” I left so many special friends and memories behind. One of those friends is my friend Brenda and one of the memories is of the first time I tried her Apple Crisp.

I don’t consider myself a baker but this Apple Crisp recipe sure makes me feel like one. It’s so simple to throw together, tastes a lot like apple pie (without the hassle of dealing with the crust), and pairs well with your afternoon tea (and perhaps a small scoop of ice cream).
- 4 granny smith apples peeled, cored, and sliced
- 4 gala apples peeled, cored, and sliced
- 1/4 cup water
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup shortening
Preheat oven to 350ºF.
Add the sliced apples to a 9x13 baking dish. Pour in the water and lightly sprinkle with salt.
In a medium mixing bowl, combine the sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over apples.
In the same bowl, mix together the flour, brown sugar, and salt with a fork until it becomes the consistency of sand.
Spread the brown sugar mixture over the apples.
Bake for an hour or until bubbly.
