This Easy Apple Crisp is made with a cinnamon apple pie filling and is topped with a butter crumble topping (no oatmeal on this one!)
THE BEST APPLE CRISP
One of my favorite recipes to make during the fall season is Apple Crisp. I love it with a passion, y'all! This one is a bit different from your usual apple crisp. There is no oatmeal in this one. Mainly because my husband isn't a fan of the brown sugar/oatmeal topping so I had to figure something else out. And you know what? I ended up loving it better this way!
CAN I USE OTHER PIE FILLINGS?
This recipe works with pretty much all pie fillings. I have made it with cherry, peach and blueberry. They all tasted wonderful with this topping. I just leave out the cinnamon for the other pie fillings except for the peach pie filling. With the cherry pie filling, it's nice to add a touch of almond extract to boost the flavor!
HOW DO I MAKE APPLE CRISP WITH FRESH APPLES?
Instead of the canned apple pie filling, you'll need about 5 cups fresh apples (peeled and sliced), ½ cup sugar, ½ tp ground cinnamon and 1 tsp vanilla extract. Combine these ingredients and place into baking dish. Then follow up with the topping recipe as written below.

THE BEST APPLE CRISP
- 2 (21 oz) cans apple pie filling
- 1-2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

- Sprinkle ground cinnamon on top of apple filling.
- In a medium bowl, combine flour, sugar and cubed butter.
- Using a fork or pastry cutter, mix all ingredients until combined well. Making sure to "cut" the butter into the mixture. It should look like little butter pebbles when it's ready.
