How to Make Our Classic Apple Crisp With Oats
- You can make crisps crumbly by working the butter into the flour mixture to create larger crumbles. For a lighter texture, work the cold butter into the flour mixture until it has a sandy texture.
- We like to cut the apples into 1/2-in.-thick slices, then cut them in half so they’re 1 1/2 in. long. This size prevents gaps when filling the baking dish and promotes even cooking.
Apple Crisp Recipe Variations
Crumble is very similar to a crisp, but its soft streusel topping doesn’t contain oats. Instead, nuts are often used to give it an extra bite.
