Grandma’s Apple Crisp

1 reviews / 5 average

There’s no place like home, except Grandma’s. Especially when there’s apple crisp involved.

I’m so lucky to have loving grandparents who are willing to host a double date with me and Bjork!

And who share their best + easiest apple crisp recipes with their eager granddaughters.

And who offer to let us take the leftovers home.

And who are learning how to use the computer so they can email their grandchildren and read blogs! And for making delicious apple crisp. Did I already say that?

Two people looking at a computer screen.

And who are sweet, funny and wonderful.

Thanks, Grandma and Grandpa, for a fun dinner date!

(And thanks for reading, Grandma!)

    Hi Jenna, this recipe looks delish! I was just wondering is the butter supposed to be melted in the recipe or cut into to make a coarse topping? plan to make it this week.

      crumbled to make a coarse topping, like you would with a pie crust. Thanks for the comment and no worries on the blogger name mix up. 🙂

    This recipe only needs one tablespoon of flour? Am I reading that right? Just wanna clarify since I don’t bake very often…

    Just made this today, an oldie but a goodie! I had some apples that were on their last leg and didn’t have any oats. However, it turned out delicious!
