Best Ever Apple Crisp

Best Ever Apple Crisp is one of our family favorites desserts. Maple caramelized apples and a crisp sweet topping, nothing beats this fall treat.

Ingredients

  • 8 large Granny Smith apples cored, peeled and sliced
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Crumb Topping

  • 1 1/4 cups yellow cake mix just the mix!
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 6 tablespoon chilled butter

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • Peel apples, cored and then slices into quarters. Then slice each quarter piece into three pieces.
  • In a large bowl add apple slices, lemon juice, cornstarch, brown sugar, white sugar, vanilla and cinnamon. Gently toss to combine. Pour apple mixture into skillet or 2-quart baking dish and place in preheated oven and bake for 10 minutes.
  • While apples are baking, in a medium mixing bowl, combine yellow cake mix, brown sugar, salt and baking powder. Stir to combine. Add butter, and using a pastry blender or a fork, cut butter into the mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  • Add crumb topping to cover the apples entirely. Set in the oven and bake for another 30-35 minutes or until crumb topping is a nice golden brown and the juice from the apples is bubbling.
  • Serve immediately or let it cool and serve later, it's great either way especially with vanilla ice cream or homemade whipped topping.
