    Apple Crisp or Apple Crumble is another delicious dessert for Fall. It is a dessert made of baked apples topped with a crisp streusel crust.

    The earliest recipe was posted in 1924 "Everybody's Cook Book: A Comprehensive Manual of Home Cookery" by Isabel Ely Lord. There was also a recipe for Apple Crisp in a newspaper article in the "Appleton Post Crescent" on Dec. 9, 1924.

    Since those first publications of the recipe, it has become a very popular dessert in the U.S., especially during Fall.

    Apple Crisp with Granola Topping

    Filling

    10 medium apples
    1 cup sugar
    1 tablespoon flour
    1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1/2 cup water

    Topping

    1 cup cinnamon raisin granola
    1 cup all purpose flour
    1 cup brown sugar
    1/4 teaspoon baking powder
    1/2 cup melted butter

    Heat oven to 350 degrees. To make filling, peel, core and slice apples. Mix sugar, flour and cinnamon. Spread over apples and drizzle 1/2 cup water over all.
    Combine granola, flour, brown sugar, baking powder and butter in a bowl. Mix to combine evenly and crumble over apples. Bake 45 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.

    Remember leftovers are good for breakfast.

    Recipe from: "Chef's Choice", "Kentucky Living Magazine", October. 2015.

    Another one of my favorites! Super with cold milk, too. The brown sugar crunchy top really makes this wonderful dish.

    There are several variations of Apple Desserts. They are not so much variants, but actually separate apple desserts. Some types are Apple Brown Betty, Apple Cobbler, Apple Slump. Apple Grunt, Apple Pandowdy, Apple Crumble, and Eve's Pudding.

    I know several have been posted about on the Food Forum.

    Both my mother and grandmother used to make this. My mom no long cooks, she is 96. I still love this treat. So good and so many good recipes. I don't know which is better. I will have to choose one.. Thanks @donna and @nitrofd for the great recipes. I might have to try both.

    My very best to your Mom. You are so lucky to have her. I sure miss my Mom and Dad but have great memories. My Mom was a great cook. She made apple crisp too.

    I have an old "Apple Crisp" recipe where oats are not added to topping, which I prefer. You mix some lemon juice and water together to sprinkle over apples instead of plain water. Also, I sometimes add nuts to the topping mixture and chop up the apples into pieces rather than slices. I like more cinnamon and add 2 tsp. I usually use dark brown sugar in baking, it's richer in flavor. Oven temp is 375 x 45 min. My grandson who is 12 loves this dessert.
