  • 1 apple, peeled and sliced
  • ¼ tsp vanilla
  • 3 tbsp cold butter, cut into chunks
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar 
  • 3 tbsp old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 3 tbsp flour
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg


  • Preheat the oven to 350℉.
  • Grease a 2-cup, oven-safe dish and put the apples in it. Sprinkle apples with vanilla.
  • In a small bowl, mix butter, brown sugar, rolled oats, flour and cinnamon. Top the apples with this mixture.
  • Bake until the apples are soft, about 20 minutes*.   Place under the broiler for a few moments if additional browning of the top is desired.
  • Drizzle with caramel sauce if desired.
  • *It’s fine to use whatever type of apple you have on-hand but different apples have different textures and therefore require slightly different cooking times.
  • Hack: Leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
  • Hack: Make some extra streusel topping to keep in the refrigerator to make a quick apple crisp whenever you want one!
  • Hack: Level up your crisp by adding raisins or dried cranberries to the apple mixture. Or add some chopped nuts to the topping!
