My recipe for Apple Crisp is so easy to make and delivers that warm cinnamon apple filling with an amazing crisp topping made with just 4 pantry staple ingredients – oats, brown sugar, butter, and flour.

I like to start the cook my apples before assembly – just until they release their juices – which gives you a perfect result every time.

This is certainly a perfect Fall recipe when local apples are in season, but it is great anytime.
