This is by far the best apple dessert I’ve ever tasted! The topping tastes just like an oatmeal cookie. It’s the perfect combination of crunchy, chewy cookie and buttery soft apples. Great dessert for a party or family gathering (double the recipe in a 9×13-inch baking dish) or to make just for yourself on a chilly evening. Simply delicious.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 6 cups peeled and sliced apples
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ cup butter, melted

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. 2 Mix apples, white sugar, 1 tablespoon flour, cinnamon, and salt together in a bowl; spread into an 8-inch square baking dish.
  3. 3 Combine oats, 3/4 cup flour, brown sugar, baking soda, and baking powder together in a separate bowl; add butter and mix until crumbly. Crumble topping evenly over apple filling using your hands.

Chef's Notes

I use Jonathan or Granny Smith apples. Five to six medium apples yields about 6 cups peeled apple slices.


  1. A few modifications... just because. ?? Reduced the first amount of sugar from 1/2 to 1/4 cup and used brown sugar instead of white. For the crumble, used 1/2 cup flour instead of 3/4 cup. Added 3/4 cup coconut and 1 tsp cinnamon to the mixture. Added another 2 Tbs melted butter to the crumble. - Read more ...
  2. If I could give this a thousand stars, I would! I don't even typically like desserts but this...I've made it twice in the two weeks since I found it. It gets just devoured at our house! I do use apple pie spice in the filling (instead of cinnamon) and add Vietnamese cinnamon to the crumble - Read more ...
  3. have made this several times, not always with apple filling. I love this topping and use it on apples, rhubarb or today I am having unexpected company for supper so I opened a can of cherry pie filling and used the topping on it. It is my go to recipe for fruit crumbles.
  4. Great recipe, I improvised a little though. Instead of 1 tsp of cinnamon, I used 3/4 tsp cinnamon 1/4 tsp nutmeg On the crumble, I got the butter to be super soft/melted and added 1/2 tsp vanilla. It lasted less than 2 nights.
  5. The topping on this was okay. Not the best I've made. I prefer cutting in the butter instead of adding it melted. I believe it makes it more crumbly but not less crispy. The topping was noticibly sweeter than usual. My husband didn't complain, though.
  6. This recipe is better than most apple crisps I've tried, but I did find it a bit flawed, though I would make it again with some changes. It was overly sweet so I would decrease the sugar in the crumble part by one fourth cup.I do have to say that the texture was SUPERB. Another - Read more ...
  7. Did not change anything. It was great! Will make again,easy and tastes wonderful!
  8. Absolutely delicious and a simple recipe too! I made no changes and it turned out beautifully. Used 3 very large honeycrisp apples. I will definitely make this again.
  9. Easy and delicious! The only thing I changed was substituting apple pie spice for the cinnamon. Thank you for sharing a great recipe!
