What do you do with all the fruit left over from apple picking? Make a treat, of course! A classic fall dessert like the Apple Crisp is often the result of having an abundance of apples in the kitchen. Pair a few of your favorite apples together in this recipe. We prefer a combination of Honey Crisp and Granny Smith apples for a tangy-and-sweet dessert.
You can cook this dish in advance, top it with our streusel mixture, and freeze until you’re ready to serve it. Hint: make this easy recipe for a Thanksgiving buffet and you won’t sweat dessert. That morning, all you’ll need to do is pop the frozen crisp in the oven!
Did you know, the apple crisp is a relatively new invention? It is absent – gasp! –
from the first edition of the Fannie Farmer Cookbook (1896), which is a comprehensive collection of American recipes. The earliest reference to apple crisp in print occurs in 1924, with a recipe in a newspaper article in the Appleton Post Crescent.
