Here’s a simple way to make your own Apple Crisp dessert kits for a work-free, hot, fresh dessert from oven to table in 30 minutes.

Apple crisp is one of the beloved flavors of fall, the crisp apples baked to perfection with cinnamon, a touch of nutmeg and topped with a delectable crisp of buttery spiced oats and brown sugar. However, after working a long day at work and then coming home, having to make dinner, dessert is often out of the question.

Make Your Own Apple Crisp Kits

You really need a decent baking apple for this recipe such as Macintosh, Cortlands or Stayman. I don’t recommend sweet eating apples such as red or golden delicious as they don’t cook as well, tending to become mushy and just don’t offer the flavor or crispness of Macs or Cortlands.

Apple Filling:

4-6 Large Apples (Preferably Macs or Cortlands), peeled & cut into thin slices
1/3 cup of sugar
1/4 c. flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg

Topping:

3/4 c. Brown Sugar (packed)
1/2 c. flour
1/2 c. oats
1/3 cup softened butter
3/4 tsp cinnamon
3/4 tsp nutmeg

In a large bowl combine sliced apples, sugar, flour, cinnamon and nutmeg mixing well until thoroughly coated.

For the topping, combine brown sugar, flour oats, cinnamon, and nutmeg mixing well, then add the butter and mix until fully incorporated.

If using a vacuum sealer as we used here, pull the bag through leaving a few inches open at the end, then seal the bag. Pull the bag down with enough room for the filling and cut the bag across. Fill the apple end first, then vacuum seal normally. Flip it over, fill with the apple crisp topping and seal normally. It can be stored up to 18 months in Foodsaver/vacuum seal bags.

Alternatively, you could use Ziploc style freezer bags and attach the topping in another small Ziploc bag. It can be frozen for about 4 weeks in zip-style bags.

To prepare, remove from the freezer in the morning before you head to work and put it in the fridge. After work, dump the apples into a deep-dish pie plate, crumble the topping over the top of the apples and bake at 350F for 28-30 minutes.

      See if anyone from your home area can send you some of them.. then use this stratagy to save them for your later use!

  2. i am going to make just one this weekend to try it out. i will prepare and then freeze. i dont see lemon juice in the apple mixture and i am afraid apples may turn brown, so that is why i am only going to try one.

    sounds wonderful and way too easy! if it works out for me, then it is a great way to use all these wonderful apples up and to have some good dessert in the dead of winter!

    • I’m new to baking. How do I know to use all purpose or self rising flour when reading the recipes?

      the recipe will state specifically self rising flour. also, if a recipe contains baking soda or baking powder and salt, chances are, it’s not going to ask for self rising flour too.

  3. if i use a vacuum sealer, do i put it in the freezer or not?? i don’t have a vacuum sealer yet but getting one soon.

      Yes! Put it in the freezer!

      Otherwise your apples will ferment in the vacuum bag!:arizona:

  4. I made up several of these “kits” some years ago. One got lost in the freezer and I recently found it. Had nothing to lose, so opened it up and made it. It was fantastic! Tasted just like the day I made it up. Vacuum bags are amazing! Anyway, have a fresh crop of apples from our trees(Gravensteins, I think), so will be making up more kits. I have the cutest individual-sized apple shaped baking dishes I use. Perfect for this 🙂
