Extra Crumbly Apple Crisp!

Extra Crumbly Apple

We bought a bag of apples at our local apple farm last week.  Of course, we had to make apple crisp.

  I found a recipe from Martha Stewart

I followed the recipe from her page but made some changes as we went along!

*My changes to the Martha Stewart recipe are below in red*


  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour, (spooned and leveled)
  • 1/2 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup plus 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, cold, cut into small cubes
  • 1 1/2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats (not quick-cooking)
  • 3 pounds apples, such as Empire, Gala, or Braeburn, peeled, cored, and cut into 1/2-inch chunks
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice - I used crystallized lemon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon and 1/4 teaspoon of pumpkin spice
  • handful of raisins


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. 
    In a large bowl, mix together flour, brown sugar, salt, and 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
    Cut butter into flour, using a pastry blender or two knives, until mixture is the texture of coarse meal.

     Add oats and I added some extra cinnamon

    and use your hands to toss and squeeze mixture until large, moist clumps form.

     Transfer to freezer to chill while you prepare apples.

  2. In another large bowl, toss apples with lemon juice, cinnamon, and remaining 1/2 cup granulated sugar. 

    Transfer to a shallow 2-quart baking dish, and sprinkle with topping mixture. 

    Place baking dish on a rimmed baking sheet, and bake until golden and bubbling, 55 to 65 minutes. Let cool 10 minutes before serving.
    We obviously got into it before I got the out of the oven picture :)
    It is awesome! 


  1. Oh My goodness!!!!! This looks scrumptious!!! I have to pin to pinterest to hold onto and make soon!

  2. This looks delicious! I am writing it down and going to give it a try this weekend! Thank you!

  3. I need to hide it. I keep wanting to take a spoonful! :)

  4. Great recipe. You have to have cinnamon! I can't believe Martha left that out.

    1. I know! She has it with the apples but not with the crumbly part. So, I added it to the crumbly mixture as well!

  5. The topping is the best part, I will have to try this recipe. Looks like you had a great helper too

  6. Mhmm...this looks very yummy! I love this type of topping!

  7. My family's favorite thank you for sharing the recipe will try this one soon!
