SOTD Eats: Apple Crisp


Fall is here and I couldn’t be any happier. I’ve already had too many apple cider donuts (and will be getting more this weekend) and made a dish of Apple Crisp with my Mom this past weekend. I went home to Delaware to soak up some time with my parents and Mama had donuts, apple cider, and apples waiting for me when I walked in the door. I’m not loved at all, can you tell? 

When she suggested making apple crisp together I was fully on board. We are a pretty great team in the kitchen and can whip up a recipe faster than we could alone! 

I spent summers growing up making 4-H state fair entries in the kitchen with my Dad and making holiday meals and treats with my Mom. I loved learning from them in the kitchen during my childhood. Unfortunately, sometime around high school I lost interest, but when I moved to Baltimore by myself I fell back in love with cooking and baking.  Today I cook a couple times a week and when I have the kitchen all to myself I love to test out challenging baking recipes.  

Apple crisp with my Mama was the perfect way to end a weekend at home. The recipe that we used needed a little something extra so I doubled the cinnamon and added a little sugar! 

Ingredient list 

  • 4 cups of sliced tart apples
  • 2/3 cup of packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup of all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup of oats
  • 3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/3 cup of butter, softened


Step 1: Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and lightly grease a 8×8 baking dish

Step 2: Peel the apples and slice them. We then halved each of the slices to make them easier to eat


Step 3: Spread your apples out in the baking dish and start making the dry mixture 

Step 4: Combine dry ingredients and whisk into a crumbly mixture 

Step 5: Cover the top of the apples with mixture and place in oven for 30 minutes 


Step 6: Add whipped cream or a dollop of vanilla ice cream and ENJOY!
