Expert Tips

  • Tip 1
    Granny Smith apples were a favourite for this crisp in the Test Kitchen. However, Braeburn, honey crisp or your favourite apple would also work well.
  • Tip 2
    Apple pie spice is a combination of several dry spices, such as cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and mace. Feel free to use in place of the cinnamon.
  • Tip 3
    This crisp can also be baked in a 10-inch cast-iron skillet; the pan will be full and may take an extra couple of minutes to bake. Bake with a foil-lined baking sheet underneath to catch any juice that may bubble up over the side.
  • Tip 4
    Cooking Gluten Free? Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.
