Apple Crisp for a Crowd – Recipe!

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The comforting smell of cinnamon and apples baking in the oven is just heaven, especially around the holiday season.   If you are looking for a great dessert that feeds a large group, Apple Crisp for a Crowd is perfect.   The apples cook down to a luscious creamy texture and the delightful crunchy oat topping adds great contrast.

This recipe is relatively simple to create, you just need a few helpers to peel and core apples, so the baking can begin.  You can serve this warm out of the oven or at room temperature and top with a dollop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream, yum.


20 apples, I used Gala

1 1/2 tablespoons cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

3 tablespoons cornstarch

2/3 cup brown sugar

butter for dish

whipped cream, optional


1 cup all purpose flour

1 cup rolled oats

1 1/2 sticks cold butter, diced

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup granulated sugar

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

(Serves 12-15)

To Prepare:

1.  Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.  Peel and corn the apples.  Slice them into 1/4 inch wedges.


2.  Add the cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, cornstarch and brown sugar.  Toss the apples to combine the flavors and pour into a butter 6 quart casserole dish.



3.  Next, to make the topping, combine all the ingredients in a large bowl and using a pastry blender or your fingers, combine the mixture, until it resembles coarse crumbs.



4.  Place the crumb topping on top of the apples and set the casserole dish on a sheet pan.  Bake in the oven for 1 hour 20 minutes, or until the topping is deep golden brown.



5.  Remove the Apple Crisp for a Crowd from the oven and let cool for at least an hour before serving. I like to serve mine with a dollop of freshly whipped cream.  Enjoy!
