I live in apple country, and a delicious crisp is one good way to use them that doesn't take a lot of time. —Gertrude Bartnick, Portage, Wisconsin

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Vanilla ice cream, optional

"Delicious;!! I used Granny Smith apples and doubled the recipe. Made for group of 16 and everyone loved it! Put topping in bottom as suggested, did not count/measure apples, just kept piling them up till they filled my Pyrex dish (9 x 13) and put remainder of topping, as best I could, on top before pouring liquid over. Put pan or foil under dish since it will probably bubble over in oven. Served with vanilla ice cream, but excellent without!"

"This is a delicious crisp recipe, albeit rather sweet for our taste. The first time I made it I followed the recipe as directed. I now make it with half the sugar . I do squeeze fresh lemon over the apples to balance the acidity and sweetness. Next time, I plan on trying apple cider in place of the water and further cutting the sugar to1/4 c., for even more apple flavor. My husband craves this apple crisp as soon as the cooler fall weather arrives."

"I really loved this recipe. We acquired some apples from my son's tree which we believe to be a golden delicious. Therefore I did cut the sugar for the filling back to 1/2 cup and used 2 TBSP Apple Cider vinegar in the cup of water to tang it up. Of course I had to eat my first serving before it had cooled completely with melting vanilla ice cream on top. So delish, and I know it will be even better tomorrow after the flavors blend together. I will make it with granny smith apples and try apple cider instead of water next time and I believe it'll be perfect for my family's taste. Thanks so much for sharing Gertrude!"

"I have made this 4 times now, once with apples, then with cherries, raspberry/blackberry and blueberry and all have been excellent. All but the apples were frozen fruit, I used about 3/4 to a pound of fruit. I cooked and lightly crushed the fruit in the water/sugar/corn starch mixture after it had thickened and cleared."

"This was super-yum! I made it gluten-free by using 1/2c sorghum flour & 1/2c white rice flour plus 1t xantham gum and Bob's Red Mill GF oats. I used 1/2 the sugar and made it in a 9x13 pan with 2x the apples (Granny Smith). I also added ginger, allspice and nutmeg to the syrup mixture. No one could tell it was gluten-free and it was WONDERFUL!!"

"This apple crisp is delicious. It has very pleasing proportions of apple to crisp. I did make some changes based on other reviews because we don't like things as sweet as this would be with the called-for sugar. I cut the brown sugar and the sugar back to a little more than 1/2 cup each. I also used about 1-1/2 tsp. of cinnamon. I used 4 medium Granny Smith apples, which amounted to a little over 4 cups. In deference to my husband's trying to watch his cholesterol, I used I Can't Believe It's Not Butter (and I love butter in baked goods). I must say the product lived up to its name! I will definitely make this again!"
