With all this chilly weather, I love food that just warms you up and puts a smile on your face.

Apple Crisp is a favorite of mine this time of year. This recipe is perfection. Perfectly cooked apples. Perfectly crunchy topping. Perfect mouthful. Each and every time.

This is a very simple recipe and is a delight to eat. Top with some ice cream and let it melt over the top to create an amazing and unforgettable bite.

    Great Recipe! I did not add the water, since I never add water to fruit crisp recipes. I used a square pan measuring 8x8 size. I fixed this for my large, picky family. Thanks a lot for sharing this awesome recipe. :)

      Where in the recipe does it say to add water?

      Okay no where in this recipe does it call for water. So not sure what the heck you were reading.

    Made this last night and it was aaaaamazing. Didn't have any ice cream, instead, I drizzled a little heavy cream on top and it was glorious. Highly, highly recommend this recipe.

    Loved this! I especially loved the topping. It wasn't too sweet and I used old fashioned oats to give it a little more texture. This is going into my "heirloom" recipes.

    As a country gal, I made this and did not have ice cream, whipping cream, or heavy cream. I had to top with Cool Whip, but it was yummy anyway! I'll make it again! Thanks for the recipe.

    Would it be ok to leave out the orange juice?
