This Apple Crisp Pudding is delicious! It’s so simple to make and tastes just like Apple Pie. So if making apple pie terrifies you, then you need this in your life.
Today I wanted to share one final dessert idea for your Thanksgiving menu. (Because we all know I haven’t shared enough of them . . . ahem last week’s Thanksgiving menu.)
Apple pie, like pumpkin pie, is kind of a must-have at Thanksgiving, right? But I know there are many of you out there who are terrified of making pies or you feel like pie making is something you haven’t quite mastered. Thankfully today you don’t have to worry about that because this Apple Crisp Pudding is so simple to make and tastes just like apple pie. It’s crazy good my friends.
I got this recipe from my mom years ago. When I called her about it a few weeks ago, she couldn’t remember where she even got it from. I could have sworn it was my Grandma Clark’s recipe, but she was sure it’s not. Anyway, it doesn’t matter where it came from, I’m just glad we have it.
This is honestly one of the easiest desserts you will make for Thanksgiving or any occasion, and it tastes amazing! The topping is different from most fruit crisps. Rather than butter, brown sugar, flour and oatmeal, this apple crisp topping is made with granulated sugar, flour and butter. It’s amazing!
WHAT KIND OF APPLE SHOULD I USE?
I always use granny smith, gala, or honey crisp apples, or a combination of a couple of them together. I don’t recommend red delicious for this, mainly because I just don’t love red delicious apples, I don’t think they have great flavor and they seem to get too mushy.
CAN I MAKE THIS THE DAY BEFORE?
I love this very best the day you make it, but it is still delicious if you make it a day ahead. Cover it loosely with foil (I don’t like to use saran wrap because I feel like it makes the topping “sweat” slightly. Keep it in a cool dry place. Just before serving it, turn your oven to 250 degrees and throw it back in for about 20 to 25 minutes to warm it back up (foil removed).
Let’s talk about the topping here because it’s fantastic! Just look at it! Doesn’t it look delicious? It’s crispy, buttery, sugary and honestly, it’s my favorite part of this apple crisp. You’re absolutely going to love it!
This dessert is perfect just right out of the pan, but when you add some vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce, oh my!! Just promise me you’ll try it.
I will be taking the rest of the week off so I can enjoy time with my family, but I hope you all have the best Thanksgiving ever! I’ll be back Monday with Day 1 of my annual 12 Days of Sugar so get your sweet tooth ready.
