Apple crisp recipe in a bowl with ice cream.

This easy apple crisp recipe is made unique by the inclusion of dried cherries. I slice the apples directly into the baking dish to save having to wash a separate bowl.

The best apples for apple crisp: I have used Rome apples here, but I also sometimes make apple crisp with McIntosh or Cortland apples. If you use Granny Smith, be sure to use sweet cherries as sour cherries will make the crisp too tart.

The recipe makes 4-6 servings and is delicious served warm with vanilla ice cream.

Apple Crisp Filling Ingredients:

  • 4 large baking apples
  • 1/4 cup of dried cherries
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • Apple Crisp Topping Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup Quaker Old Fashioned oats (not the quick cooking kind)
  • A heaping 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
  • A heaping 1/4 teaspoon of ground nutmeg
  • 4 tablespoons of softened butter

  • Assemble the Homemade Apple Crisp

    Baked apple crisp recipe.

    1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.

    2. Cover the dried cherries with water to soften them while you slice the apples.

    3. Peel, core, and slice the apples (thinly) into the baking dish. Drain and add the cherries. Sprinkle the sugar and flour on top and mix the 4 ingredients together right inside the buttered baking dish.

    4. Place the apple crisp topping ingredients into a small bow. Cut the butter in with a fork until all the ingredients are fully incorporated.

    5. Spread the oatmeal topping over the sugared apples evenly and place the dish into the center of the oven. Bake for 40 minutes or until it begins to bubble.
