Apple crisp recipes, like other fruit crisp recipes, combine fresh fruit with a delicious topping to make a simple and healthy baked dessert with fruit. Crisp recipes made with apples are sometimes referred to as "Apple Brown Betty".
Similar to apple crumbles, crisps are often served warm with a topping of whipped cream, yogurt, Greek Yogurt, dessert topping or ice cream.
Crisps made with apples are one of those hard-to-resist, mouth watering "comfort" type of desserts. They seem particularly suited for a fall and winter snack or dessert.
Where I live in Southern Ontario, Canada, I am surrounded by many apple orchards. When summer turns into autumn, and the apples begin to ripen, my family always starts asking when I will be making apple dishes, such as a crisp or apple crumble.
I have used many different varieties of apples to make these crisp recipes, and each type works well to make a super delicious bowl of fruit crisp.
The variety I use most often is "MacIntosh", but varieties like "Granny Smith", "Golden Delicious", and many other give amazing results as well.
Many crisp recipes combine berries such as raspberries, or blackberries with the apples, to make a special fruit crisp that is colourful, and pleasing to the eyes ... and to the palate!
Many crisp recipes include oatmeal in the topping. Oatmeal is a healthy grain that, when used in crisp recipes, adds a texture and flavour, almost like an oatmeal cookie topping.
You can also add a sprinkling of nuts, such as walnuts, pecans, or almonds to the topping, (even if the recipe does not specifically include this ingredient), for an extra nutritious boost.
Adding nuts also gives the crisp a scrumptious, crunchy texture to contrast with the juicy apples.
