Apple Crisp

This is the easiest, tastiest recipe I've ever found...literally put together in a few minutes. The ginger is a perfect mate for the sweet apples, adding just a little zing. I doubled the crusty topping, since my family likes a thick crust on top of their fruit crisp. A great way to use up those apples around the house..I've substituted lots of different fruits for this..canned pears, fresh blueberries, even strawberries and peaches! Such a simple recipe.


6 cups diced apples (or your fruit of choice)
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 tsp ginger
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1 Tbsp flour


1 cup flour
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter (1 stick)

peel and chop your favorite apples..I used Fuji here

I used Sunmaid mixed extra-large raisins..added a sweet pop of flavor

spices, flour and brown sugar are all that's needed to compliment sweet apples

Mix filling together in bowl, put in a 13x9 greased pan and bake at 350 degrees for 10 min. While filling bakes, put together topping....

Mix dry ingredients well. Cut in cold butter until you get pea-sized crumbs (I like to use my hands, so you get big chunks). Sprinkle over hot filling and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until browned. Serve with ice cream or whipped cream for a special treat!

all baked up and ready to eat!


  1. Love the addition of ginger to the topping!

    I loooove making crisps because they're so easy. My husband loves to eat them hehe. This summer I made my favorite crisp by far- a blueberry and peach crisp.!!

    Can't wait to read more recipes!

  2. Hey Som! Blueberry and peach sounds divine... my kids love both of those so they'd scarf that dish up!

    I love the simplicity of crisps, too. You could make it almost without a recipe, and it uses up any fruit I have around..a perfect treat.
