Apple Of My Eye Crisp

  • Yield: 6 to 8 servings


  • 1 tablespoon plus
  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) cold unsalted butter cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup plus 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 Granny Smith apples
  • 3 Golden Delicious apples
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon


  • Make sure the oven rack is in the center position and preheat the oven to 350?F.
  • Grease a 9 by 9-inch baking dish with 1 tablespoon of the butter. Set aside.
  • Place the flour, brown sugar, 1/4 cup of the granulated sugar, and the salt in a medium mixing bowl.
  • Add the remaining 4 tablespoons of butter pieces and work them in with two forks, a pastry blender, or your fingers until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Refrigerate the crumb topping while preparing the other ingredients.
  • Peel and core the apples. Now cut one apple in half. Place one apple half flat on the cutting board and cut lengthwise into 6 slices.
  • Place the slices in a large mixing bowl and use your hands or a wooden spoon to toss with the lemon juice.
  • Repeat with the remaining apples, tossing with lemon juice after each addition.
  • Add the remaining 3/4 cup of granulated sugar, the cornstarch, and the cinnamon to the apples and stir well with a large spoon.
  • Pour the apples into the prepared baking dish and crumble the topping evenly over the mixture.
  • Bake until golden brown and bubbling, about 1 hour and 15 minutes.
  • Using oven mitts or pot holders, remove the dish from the oven and cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes before serving.
  • Be careful coring and slicing apples! Have an adult help you. And heyóbe really careful taking the hot, bubbly crisp out of the oven.
  • If you want to make a pie instead, just pour the apples into an (unbaked) store-bought or premade piecrust and proceed as directed above to make an apple crumb pie!
