Nana’s Apple Crisp 

This is my Nana’s Apple Crisp recipe. I have no idea where she got it from, but my family has been making all types of crisps this way for as long as I can remember. Every time we bring it to a party or event, it’s such a hit, everyone always asks for the recipe.

Although I usually make this during apple season, when we are armed with more apples then we could ever possibly eat, that doesn’t mean that is the only time of the year you can enjoy this warm tasty treat!

Perhaps the most special thing about this recipe is the fact that it’s in my Nana’s handwriting. A keepsake as well as a treat…Win win!



6 large Apples (peeled & sliced thin or chopped)

1 cup of Flour

1 cup of Sugar

1 teaspoon of Baking Powder

½ teaspoon of Salt (optional)

1 Egg

2 tablespoon of Butter

2 tablespoon of Milk



Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Butter a 13X9 inch baking pan.

Pour in the apple pieces to cover the bottom of the pan.

In a small mixing bowl fold in flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Stir dry ingredients. Mix in the egg with your hands until it resembles coarse corn meal. Sprinkle mixture evenly over the apples.

In a small pot, on medium/low heat, melt the butter. Once the butter is completely melted, turn the heat to low and pour in the milk and stir together. Turn the stove off and pour warm butter and milk over top of the flour mixture. Sprinkle Cinnamon on top.

Bake in preheated oven for 45-65 minutes or until the apples are soft.

Serve by itself or with a side of vanilla ice cream.

Another great thing about this recipe is that you can substitute the apples with whatever fruit is in season. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as my family does.

Fresh out of the oven and served with a side of vanilla ice cream are what sweet dreams are made of.
