This apple crisp has browned butter in the crisp topping, giving it a beautiful nutty aroma that complements the apples perfectly.


  • 6 cups 900 g apples (such as Gala, MacIntosh or other sweet, eating apple), peeled and sliced

  • ¼ cup 60 mL maple syrup

  • 1 tsp 5 mL vanilla extract

  • ½ cup 115 g unsalted butter

  • 1 ¼ cups 115 g regular rolled oats

  • 1/3 cup 50 g whole wheat flour

  • ½ cup 100 g packed light brown sugar

  • 1 tsp 5 mL ground cinnamon

  • pinch salt


  • 1.

    Preheat the oven to 350 ?F (180 ?C).

  • 2.

    Place the sliced apples in a 6-cup (1.5L) by volume baking dish (any shape).  Stir in the maple syrup and vanilla to coat the apples.

  • 3.

    Melt the butter in a small saucepot over medium high heat until it browns and takes on a nutty aroma (once the foam subsides, it should be done).  Set aside.

  • 4.

    Stir the oats, flour, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt in a mixing bowl.  Add the browned butter and stir until blended.  Spread this evenly over the apples and bake for about 45 minutes, until the apples yield easily when a paring knife is inserted in the centre of the crisp (the crisp should be bubbling at the edges.) Allow the crisp to cool for 15 minutes before serving.
