A simple and easy Apple Crisp recipe made even better with maple syrup. This old fashioned dessert has an amazing, buttery, crunchy, oatmeal topping and a scrumptious apple filling. My Best Ever recipe for Apple Crisp!
Apple Crisp is one dessert my family loves and can’t get enough! There is nothing, I think, that can compare to the smell of apples and cinnamon baking in the oven? Apple Crisp is one of those great old fashioned desserts that uses simple ingredients and can be whipped up easily and quickly. A great investment to make easy work of preparing apple desserts is an apple peeler. It peels, cores and slice apples in no time.
I add some pure maple syrup to my Apple Crisp recipe, making this traditional dessert even tastier! The oatmeal topping has just the right amount of crunch and sweetness. The apples I use are from my very own apple tree that grows the most amazing apples. I have no idea what kind of apple tree it is, but the apples taste similar to a McIntosh. Granny Smith apples will also work, but you may want to add a bit more sugar as they are more tart. I also toss the apples in a tablespoon of flour or minute tapioca. This will thicken the apple filling a bit more so it is not too runny.
