Apple & Cheddar Crisp

Servings: 8


  • 1 stick (8 tablespoons) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • ¾ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¾ cup light brown sugar, divided
  • ½ cup old fashioned oats
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese, lightly packed
  • pounds Granny Smith apples (3 to 4 apples)
  • pounds crisp, sweet apples, such as Fuji or Honeycrisp (3 to 4 apples)
  • 3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice (1 lemon)
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • vanilla ice cream, for serving


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the butter, flour, ½ cup of the brown sugar, the oats, walnuts, and salt. Using a wooden spoon (or clean hands), mix until well combined. Gently fold in the cheddar cheese, then set aside.
  • Peel, core, and thinly slice all the apples and place them in a large bowl. In a small bowl, whisk together the lemon juice and the cornstarch until completely smooth. Add this mixture to the apples, along with cinnamon and the remaining ¼ cup sugar. Toss well.  Transfer the apples to a 9x9-inch square baking dish and spread into an even layer. Crumble the topping mixture evenly on top, covering the entire surface of the apples.
  • Bake for 40 to 50 minutes until bubbling and golden brown on top. Cool for 10 minutes, then serve with scoops of vanilla ice cream.
