Apple crisp is my favourite fall dessert. It’s so simple and delicious. I also love how the simplicity keeps the freshness of the apples at the forefront. With a scoop of vanilla ice cream, it’s rich, warm, comforting, and sweet. This Easy Apple Crisp is a cozy and warm dessert that will be perfect for fall nights.
WHAT IS APPLE CRISP?
Apple crisp is a simple dessert. The apples are seasoned with a mixture of spices and topped with a crunchy and sweet oat topping. Baked until they become tender. This is a kind of apple pie for those who don’t want to mess with pie crusts. It’s perfect with vanilla ice cream and homemade whip cream!
WHAT KINDS OF APPLES WORK BEST FOR APPLE CRISP?
I like Gala or Fuji apples for apple crisp, but you can make any apple work. You may need to add more sugar to your apple seasoning mixture if you have a Granny Smith or Braeburn apple. The most important aspect to consider when choosing apples is their juiciness. An apple crisp that’s not juicy and fresh will be more dry than deliciously sweet. This chart shows apples sorted by their sweetness.
HOW CAN I REDUCE SUGAR?
Both the topping and the filling of this apple crisp are heavily influenced by sugar. The sugar in the filling helps draw out the apples’ juices and creates a nice, saucy texture. Sugar helps to crystalize the crumble, making it crunchy. If you reduce the sugar, it will affect not only the sweetness but also the texture of the dish.
HOW TO STORE LEFTOVER Apple CRISP
To reduce condensation, wait until the apple crisp cools down before covering it with plastic and refrigerating. The apple crisp will keep in the fridge for approximately four days. Although the crumble topping won’t retain any moisture as the apple crisp cools, it will still be delicious!
