Grandma's Apple Crisp

Apple crisp in our house means it is fall. This favorite has been served in my family for over 60 years. My brother and I would beg our mom to make it all the would everyone else. Enjoy! Note: An apple peeler/corer makes this dessert preparation much easier and faster.

  • 10-12 apples
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 tsp of baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1 T cinnamon sugar
  1. Peel, cut, and core apples. Place in baking dish.
  2. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
  3. In separate bowl, mix together sugar, flour, eggs, salt, and baking powder.
  4. Cover apples.
  5. Melt 1 stick of butter pour over dry mixture.
  6. Bake 1 hour.
Difficulty: Easy
Time: prep: 30 minutes (if you have a peeler, this will be much faster) baking: 60 minutes

  1. Kelly, this is the same recipe my mother always made too. It must be a Pittsburgh tradition. I made this tonight with apples I froze last fall. We re having it with vanilla ice cream, but I like it with milk on it just s much. I'm happy I was looking through you recipe list and saw it. Lisa

  2. Lisa-I'm glad you liked it! It is so much better than pie. Mom had it on an old recipe card that said it was grandmother's recipe; it always makes me smile when I make it.
