Cinnamon Apple Crisp

Total Time

Prep: 10 min. Bake: 50 min.


12-16 servings

One of the desserts I always make when everyone comes home for Christmas is this scrumptious crisp. We enjoy the brown sugar, cinnamon, walnut and graham cracker topping better than the traditional oat-topped version.


  • 10 cups sliced peeled tart apples
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup red-hot candies
  • 1/2 cup boiling water
  • 1-1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs (about 24 squares)
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup cold butter, cubed


  1. Place apples in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Sprinkle with sugar and red-hots. Pour water over apples.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the cracker crumbs, flour, brown sugar, walnuts and cinnamon; cut in butter until crumbly. Sprinkle over apple mixture.
  3. Bake, uncovered, at 325° for 50-55 minutes or until apples are tender.
