Fall Desserts: Apple Crisp

Home / Recipes / Fruit and Vegetable Recipes / Fall Desserts: Apple Crisp

Fall is in the air. I LOVE IT! The cool crisp nights. The fall produce. Soups become the go-to meals. It’s the best.


What better fall dessert is there than some warm apple crisp. The other day my sister sent me a text and said “I’m craving apple crisp – but I don’t have all the ingredients to make it”. Of course I didn’t mention if she had food storage she wouldn’t have that problem. Instead I made a delicious pan of apple crisp (using her favorite recipe) and texted her a picture of it. Aren’t sisters the best? If she didn’t live a few states away I would have invited her over for some too (I’m not that mean).

So here’s my sister’s favorite apple crisp recipe (that she couldn’t make).

She made sure to tell me to double the toppings for extra yumminess.

Apple Crisp

5 apples, peeled and sliced (or 5 cups Freeze-Dried Granny Smith Apples, rehydrated)
½ cup of sugar
½ TB flour
½ tsp cinnamon
¼ cup water

Combine all ingredients into a 9×13 pan. Combine the following ingredients in a separate bowl.

1 cup quick cooking oats
1 cup flour
1 cup brown sugar
¼ tsp baking soda
¼ tsp baking powder
½ cup melted butter.

Sprinkle over top the apples. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes.

    Just curious, but if this were made with dehydrated apple slices, A) would it be worth eating, and B) about how much of the dehydrated apples would be required?

    • I would use freeze-dried apple slices as opposed to dehydrated apple bits. I think they would turn out more like the original recipe. My favorite for pies and crisps are the granny smith ones from Thrive. They are plump and peeled and really yummy and the tartness perfectly balances the sweetness of the dessert. http://jodiandjulie.thrivelife.com/granny-smith-apple-slices-freeze-dried.html I’ll update the post to reflect this info. Thanks!
