Betty Crocker Apple Crisp

This incredible dessert is simple and easy to throw together. You can have it prepped and cooking within minutes! Baked apples with an oat crumble topping and delicious spices like cinnamon and nutmeg help to give you a fall-flavored dessert that tastes great at any time of the year!

You can use any type of baking apples or any combination of them that you prefer, but I honestly love Granny Smiths. They hold up well to the baking and give that perfect sweet and sour flavor that counterbalances the sweet oat toppings and sugars in this dish. 

Betty Crocker Apple Crisp

I love making this easy apple crisp recipe because it’s much less work than making an apple pie and it has a lot less dirty dishes created too (and who doesn’t love that?) Not to mention, adding a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped topping to a warm plate of the best apple crisp recipe just makes it hit all of your taste buds in the right places.

How to make Instant Pot Apple Crisp?

  • Peel and core your apples.
  • Slice apples into wedges and cut each wedge into 3 or 4 chunks.
  • Place your apples to the bottom of a pressure cooker.
  • Add in sugar and cinnamon, and then toss to coat.
  • Add in the water.
  • In a separate bowl, combine your oats, brown sugar, flour, and spices, mixing to combine.

Cinnamon Crumble

Optionally, you can place your apple crisp under the CrispLid air fryer to crisp the crumble topping if desired, or place it in the oven under broil for a few minutes to toast the top.

How to reheat Apple Crisp?

Apple crisp tastes good warm and cold, but if you want to reheat it I can’t blame you. Unlike other foods, it can handle being reheated and taste great regardless. You can portion out a plate (or bowl) full of apple crisp and microwave it until it’s warm or transfer it to a baking dish and heat it in the oven for a few minutes (about 15) until the apple crisp is thoroughly reheated and warm throughout.

How long does Apple Crisp last?

When kept in a tightly covered container in the fridge, your leftover apple crisp can last up to 4 days and still taste great.

What to serve with Apple Crisp Recipe?

I already mentioned how apple crisp tastes great with vanilla ice cream and whipped topping, but it also pairs great with a drizzle of caramel sauce. It’s a fairly simple dish that honestly doesn’t need to be served with anything extra to feel like it’s complete.

How to make Apple Crisp in the Oven?

If you choose to make your easy apple crisp in the oven instead of your instant pot, you can make it exactly as directed, omitting the water. Then place it in the oven at 350 degrees until the apples are soft (about 40 minutes).
