A Dessert Recipe for Thanksgiving


It’s easy to get caught up in cooking the turkey and all of your family’s favorite sides, but you should never forget about dessert. However, if dessert has already slipped your mind this Thanksgiving, this old-fashioned apple crisp recipe is guaranteed to steal the show.

Old Fashioned Apple Crisp

Nothing says “fall” like the taste of fresh apples. This mouthwatering recipe uses fresh McIntosh or Macoun apples to make a flavorful and sweet fall treat that will have your friends and family begging for the recipe.

What you’ll need:

For the base:

  • 5 pounds McIntosh or Macoun apples
  • Grated zest from 1 orange
  • Grated zest from 1 lemon
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons freshly-squeezed orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

For the topping:

  • 1/2 pound cold, unsalted butter (diced)
  • 1 cup oatmeal
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar (packed)

Cooking instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Butter a 9-inch by 14-inch by 2-inch oval baking dish.
  3. Peel, core and slice the apples into large wedges.
  4. Place the apples in a large bowl and combine them with the juices, sugar, spices and zests. Pour the entire combination in the baking dish.
  5. For the topping, combine the sugars, flour, salt, cold butter and oatmeal in the bowl of an electric mixer. Use the paddle attachment to mix the ingredients together on low speed. Continue mixing until the mixture is crumbly.
  6. Scatter the entire mixture on top of the apple base.
  7. Place the baking pan on top of a sheet pan and bake it for about 1 hour or until the top has browned and the fruit is bubbly.
