Craving Apple Crisp 🍎 

I'm part of Post A Day 2016

For some strange reason (after reading everyone’s posts about today’s prompt word Crisp) I am craving Apple Crisp today!

When I think of apple crisp, I always immediately think of an autumn family trip we took to California. My daughter was almost 2 months old so she was super tiny yet. It was her first plane ride and overall, just a really special trip!

My husband spent a few years growing up in California and had fond memories of a place called Apple Hill. We drove and drove until we found it and none of us were disappointed when we got there. It was incredible!  And, let me tell you-they served us the best apple crisp ever!

So, going with the theme of apple crisp…

I thought I would share with you my favorite Apple Crisp recipe!


  • 6 apples – peeled, cored, and sliced
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup cold butter


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  • Toss apples with white sugar and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon in a medium bowl to coat
  • Pour into a 9-inch square baking dish
  • Mix brown sugar, oats, flour, and 1 teaspoon cinnamon in a separate bowl
  • Use a pastry cutter or 2 forks to mash cold butter into the oats mixture until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs
  • Spread over the apples to the edges of the the baking dish
  • Pat the topping gently until even
  • Bake in preheated oven until golden brown and sides are bubbling, about 40 minutes.


Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

  1. Lovely post, I can imagine something like this would be great with fresh cream, funny enough as I was reading your post about the “Apple Hill”, I had Travis Greene on listening to his song “The Hill” you can check it out here;
