Apple Crisp Without Oats, with a streusel topping that's easy and quick to prepare and full of flavors from brown sugar and cinnamon. It's perfect for a weeknight family dinner or a fancy dinner party. You can make the whole thing ahead of time and pop it in the oven just before dinner.

Ingredients You'll Need:

Step 1. Preheat oven to 375. Butter a medium-sized shallow casserole dish. Step 2. Peel apples and then chop into ½-inch pieces right into the buttered dish.

Step 3. Add the lemon juice to the apples and gently toss to coat the apples. Step 4. Add the vanilla, cinnamon, brown sugar, and cornstarch and gently mix until distributed throughout the apples.

Step 5. Stir together the flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, a little freshly grated nutmeg, and a pinch of salt. Mix well. Step 6. Add the butter and use your hands to mix until a pebbly, crumbly mixture.

Step 7. Sprinkle about a third of the topping over the apples and move the apples around a bit so some of the topping is mixed in with the apples. Sprinkle remaining topping over the apples. Step 8. Bake the Apple Crisp for about 50 minutes or until the apple crisp topping is deep golden brown.
