How do you make easy apple crisp?
To make an easy apple crisp, dice six apples and add them to an 2.5 quart baking dish. Squeeze half a lemon over the apples, and sprinkle 2 tablespoons of sugar, 1 tsp of cinnamon and 1/2 tsp of fresh ground nutmeg. Toss everything together in the dish.

Bake the apple crisp in the oven for 20-45 minutes, of until the apples are very tender and the filling is bubbling up through the crisp topping.
What temperature do you bake apple crisp at?

How long does it take to bake an apple crisp?
The cooking time for an apple crisp varies depending on the type of apples you use. For this recipe I used Fuji apples, and the cooking time for the apple crisp was 45 minutes to one hour. If you use an apple that breaks down faster, such as a McIntosh apple, the apple crisp will bake more quickly, in about 20-25 minutes. You will know the apple crisp is done when the apples are very tender and the filling is bubbling.
How do you make crumb topping for apple crisp?
This crumb topping for the apple crisp has oats for extra texture, and is easy to make. All it takes is butter, flour, oats, brown sugar, white sugar, cinnamon and a little salt. Don’t skip the salt! It makes a big difference in the final taste. You can mix it together with your hands, or use a fork if you prefer. Once mixed together the apple crisp topping should resemble wet sand.
What are the best apples for apple crisp?
I use Fuji apples here, but many people love using granny smith apples, and Jonagold, Honeycrisp and Braeburn are also good apples for baking in an apple crisp. I also have used McIntosh apples, however, they are hard to find these days. The benefit of McIntosh apples is that they will cook very quickly.
Do you need to peel the apples for apple crisp?
You don’t have to peel the apples for the apple crisp, but you can if you want to. I normally don’t because one thing I like about this recipe is how fast it is to throw together. I also like the pink color the apple peels give the filling.
