Seasonal Fruit Crisp

Servings:8Serving Size:1/8 of crisp

Nothing welcomes fall like apple crisp. You can make the crisp a day ahead and keep it in the fridge uncooked. When you’re ready to bake, simply preheat the oven, and transfer the crisp from the fridge directly into the oven.


  • 3 cups sliced apples
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1½ teaspoons water
  • ½ teaspoon lemon juice
  • ½ cup quick-cooking oats
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup packed brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ cup cold butter
  • ¼ cup dried cranberries (optional)


  1. Place apples in a greased 1 quart baking dish. In a small bowl, combine the sugar, cornstarch, water and lemon juice until smooth. Pour over apples. Combine the oats, flour, brown sugar and cinnamon; cut in butter until crumbly. Sprinkle over apples.
  2. Bake, uncovered, at 375 degrees F for 20-25 minutes or until filling is bubbly.
  3. Garnish with dried cranberries, if desired.
