For the Apple Filling:

  • 6-8 large apples (such as Granny Smith or Honeycrisp), peeled, cored, and thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

For the Oat Crumble Topping:

  • 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup cold unsalted butter, cut into small cubes


Step 1: Preheat the Oven

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9×13-inch baking dish with butter or non-stick cooking spray.

Step 2: Prepare the Apple Filling

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the sliced apples, granulated sugar, all-purpose flour, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, and lemon juice. Toss until the apples are evenly coated.
  2. Transfer the apple mixture to the prepared baking dish, spreading it out evenly.

Step 3: Make the Oat Crumble Topping

  1. In a separate mixing bowl, combine the rolled oats, all-purpose flour, brown sugar, granulated sugar, and ground cinnamon. Mix well to combine.
  2. Add the cold cubed butter to the oat mixture. Using your fingertips or a pastry cutter, work the butter into the dry ingredients until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

Step 4: Assemble and Bake the Apple Crisp

  1. Sprinkle the oat crumble topping evenly over the apple filling in the baking dish.
  2. Place the baking dish in the preheated oven and bake for 40-45 minutes, or until the topping is golden brown and the apples are tender and bubbling.

Step 5: Serve and Enjoy!

  1. Remove the apple crisp from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes before serving.
  2. Serve the warm deep dish apple crisp on its own or with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream, if desired.
  3. Enjoy the delicious flavors and textures of this comforting dessert!

Note: Leftover apple crisp can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat individual servings in the microwave or oven before serving.
