Easy Apple Crisp

Easy Apple Crisp Related:   dairy, desserts & sweets, kid-friendly, North America, pareve, Rosh Hashanah, Shabbat, Sukkot, Yom Kippur

Prep time: 10 mins

Cook time: 15 mins

Yield: 8-10 servings

In my mind, Sukkot has always been a holiday of comfort foods. Perhaps it is the time of year, replete with apples, honey, pumpkins and the soups that warm our bodies as they adapt to the cooler weather. Perhaps it is the opportunity to have all of our children working together as we cut apples and bake apple crisps and muffins, as we sip on warm cider. The aromas of a bustling holiday kitchen warm us as we witness the change of season, and the uncertainty accompanying it.


  • 5 cups apples (about 4 large apples), sliced
  • ¾ cup quick-cooking oats
  • ¾ cup flour
  • 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ cup margarine or butter


  • Place apples in a 2-quart or 8x8-inch glass dish. Combine oats, flour, brown sugar, salt and cinnamon. Cut in margarine or butter until mixture is crumbly. Sprinkle over apples. Bake in microwave 15 minutes, turning ¼ turn every 3 minutes if you don't have turntable. Alternatively, bake in 375-degree oven for approximately 30 minutes or until apples are tender and topping is cooked through.

    In your ingredients there is no mention of flour, but in the directions you say the following:
    ‘Combine oats, flour, brown sugar, salt and cinnamon.’

    Can you please clarify?


  2. Karen Holley says:

    You did not give an amount of flour in the ingredients

    Do you peel the apples? The apples in the picture look like they were not peeled and that would be one less thing to do! 🙂

      You can peel them, but you don’t have to! It’s really a question of personal taste and preference.
