Swedish Chef’s Apple Crisp

Autumn is approaching and summer has given up its bounty of crisp, juicy apples.  I can’t think of something more comforting on a cold fall day than the smell of cinnamon and apples baking in the oven.

This recipe was given to me several years ago by a family member.  It doesn’t get much easier than this, folks.  You can serve this warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or at room temperature.  Make this, and your family will love you.


5-6 apples, sliced
1 c. white sugar
1 c. all-purpose flour
1 c. light brown sugar (not packed)
1 egg, beaten
1 t. baking powder
pinch of salt
1 t. vanilla extract
4 T. butter
9×13 baking dish, greased

In a medium bowl, combine flour, white sugar, baking powder and salt.  Mix with a fork to combine.  Add beaten egg and vanilla, and stir together until mixture is crumbly, then set aside.

Peel apples and cut into quarters; remove core.  Slice thinly. 

Butter a 9×13 baking dish and add enough sliced apples to fill approximately ½ to 2/3 of the baking dish.

Sprinkle cinnamon over apples and dot with butter. 

Cover apples with 1 c. brown sugar evenly.  Top apples with crumb mixture.

Preheat oven to 350º and bake for 35 minutes.
