Classic Skillet Apple Crisp Recipe

If you are looking for absolutely the easiest possible recipe to make in the fall months, then look no further than this skillet apple crisp.

It’s delicious, it’s seasonal and is done in under 1 hour from start to finish. Where else can you get a recipe like that huh? Think of it as the winter version of your peach cobbler. Yes, you can still put ice cream and yes you can still pour on caramel, in fact I recommend it! Since apples are in abundance I like to use a combination of sweet and tart so I went with Fuji and Granny Smith Apples. I’m always a huge supporter of flavor balance and I think this one-two punch does the trick.

I also took it a step further and used some almond meal to cut into the all-purpose flour in the oatmeal crisp topping. In case you weren’t aware apples go perfectly with almonds so combining them together in 1 delicious bite would only enhance the flavor of this apple crisp. It’s time for you to make this one guys and gals!
