Something I miss a lot about when my children were young, was making fun memories of apple picking every autumn. We had the best time on the hayride out to the orchard and then choosing our apples. 

 

We would come home with so many apples! What to do with all of them? Today’s recipe is one of the tried and true desserts that we made often. Even now, when I haven’t gone out to the orchard in many years to pick my own apples, I still make this perfect fall dessert.

The “crisp” in this cinnamon apple crisp dessert comes in the form of rolled oats, honey, flour, butter, and almonds.

 

Ingredients for Cinnamon Apple Crisp

 

Thyme is the surprise ingredient in this autumn recipe. You may not think it belongs, but actually, thyme is part of the mint family, so it makes perfect sense to use it and it adds a savory flavor.

 

Place the top oven rack in the center position and pre-heat oven to 350°F. Grease an 8” x 8” baking dish and set aside. Place apples in a large bowl and toss with fresh lemon juice. Add maple syrup, apple juice, cinnamon, allspice, thyme leaves, and salt. Toss to combine and set aside.

 
Combine topping ingredients in a separate bowl and stir until oats are thoroughly coated and all ingredients are well combined. Set aside.

Apple Mixture and Rolled Oats

Pour apple mixture into a prepared baking dish and spread into an even layer. Spread the topping evenly across the top in a uniform layer, as well.

Apple Mixture and Topping Ready For Baking

 

Place into a preheated oven and bake for 30 minutes. If the top layer is nicely browned, cover dish loosely with aluminum foil to prevent over-browning. Continue baking for another 15-20 minutes or until the apple crisp is nice and bubbling. Remove from oven and set aside to cool for 5-10 minutes.

Helpful Tips:

 

  • Firm apples work best, such as Granny Smith or Cripps Pink (Pink Lady) that will hold up well during baking.
  • Make this recipe gluten-free by replacing the flour with almond flour.
  • Pairs perfectly with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
