Deep Dish Apple Crisp

A deep-dish apple crisp is a comforting and delicious dessert, especially perfect for cooler seasons. Here’s a simple recipe to make a mouthwatering deep dish apple crisp at home:


For the Apple Filling:


  • 6 cups of peeled, cored, and sliced apples (such as Granny Smith or Honeycrisp)
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

For the Crisp Topping:

  • 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces


  1. Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a deep dish pie plate or a 9×9-inch baking dish with butter or cooking spray.
  2. Prepare Apple Filling:
    • In a large mixing bowl, combine the sliced apples, granulated sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, and lemon juice. Toss until the apples are evenly coated with the mixture.
  3. Make Crisp Topping:
    • In another bowl, combine oats, flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Mix well.
    • Add the cold butter pieces to the oat mixture. Using a pastry cutter or your fingers, cut the butter into the dry ingredients until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs and the butter is evenly distributed.
  4. Assemble and Bake:
    • Spread the prepared apple filling evenly in the greased baking dish.
    • Sprinkle the crisp topping mixture evenly over the apples, covering them completely.
  5. Bake the Crisp:
    • Place the baking dish in the preheated oven and bake for about 40-45 minutes or until the topping is golden brown, and the apple filling is bubbling around the edges.
  6. Cool and Serve:
    • Allow the deep dish apple crisp to cool slightly before serving. Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream for extra indulgence.
  7. Enjoy:
    • Enjoy the warm and comforting deep dish apple crisp as a delightful dessert for family gatherings or special occasions.

Feel free to customize this recipe by adding chopped nuts (such as pecans or walnuts) to the crisp topping for added crunch and flavor. You can also adjust the sweetness and spice levels in the apple filling according to your taste preferences.
