“East Coast Comfort! This fall treat was made every Sunday through the months of September and October after a weekend of apple picking. What a delicious way to spend the autumn months!”

Papa's Apple Crisp

Servings – 8 Prep Time – 20 Minutes Cook Time – 60 Minutes Ingredients:

  • 6 apples, cut into 1/2” thick slices. (Northern - Courtland, Macintosh, or Gala ~ Southern - Granny Smith, Honey Crisp or Gala)

  • 3 tbsp sugar

  • 2 tsp cinnamon


  • 1 cup flour

  • 1 cup sugar

  • 3/4 cup melted butter, cooled.

  • 1 egg

  • 1 tsp vanilla

  • pinch of salt


  • Vanilla Ice Cream

  • Caramel Sauce

  • Whipped Cream


In a 10" pie plate or 8x8” baking dish layer apple slices. Mix the sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over the apples, toss to coat.

In a small bowl mix together flour, sugar, melted butter, egg, vanilla and salt until well combined. Pour mixture over apples. Spread over apples evenly.

Bake at 325°F for 1 hour until golden brown. 5 minutes extra, depending on how crisp and golden you want the top crust.

Cool to room temperature.

Serve with French vanilla ice cream, drizzled with caramel and or whipped cream for A la mode.


Try using fresh or canned peaches, or even cherry pie filling for twist.

"If you feel the mixture is too dry, you could add a splash of milk of your choice, but usually you don’t need it. It could also be a sign, that your bananas were too small, so if you have some leftover banana, you could also just add more banana."
