Oat Topping:

Combine the flour, oats, butter, sugars, salt, cinnamon, and pecans in a medium bowl and use a fork (or your hands) to mix until the butter is well combined.

Use your fingers to place pieces of the topping onto the apple mixture in an even layer. There may be areas that aren’t completely covered.

Cooking:

Place the apple crisp in the oven and bake for 35-40 minutes or until the top is golden brown.

Remove the crisp from the oven and allow to cool before serving.

Store crisp in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

Quick Tips:

  • The oatmeal topping should blend together and not be dry or sandy in appearance and should stick together when pressed.
  • There will be areas that aren’t completely covered with the topping.
  • The cooked filling should bubble around the edges.
  • Use apple pie spice instead of ground cinnamon.
  • Remove the apple crisp from the oven and allow to cool before serving.
  • Top crisp with ice cream or whipped topping before serving.
  • Store any remaining apple crisp with oatmeal topping in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
  • Mix and match your apples, like Fuji, Granny Smith, and Golden and Delicious.
