Martha Stewart’s Apple Crisp is a simple apple crisp that uses just a few everyday ingredients. Martha Stewart often gets fancy with her recipes, for this apple crisp though she keeps it simple.
I didn’t keep up on my Martha Stewart Cooking Challenge as much as I wanted to this summer. I posted some new recipes for the challenge, but it wasn’t every week.
Now that it is September I hope to get back to my challenge of making and sharing one Martha Stewart recipe a week.
If you are a new reader I have a large Martha Stewart cookbook and magazine collection.
I wanted to use my collection more, so for 2021, I challenged myself to cook a recipe a week from my Martha Stewart cookbook and recipe collection. It has been a fun and delicious challenge.
This week’s recipe is perfect for September because it is an apple recipe.
Everyday Food Apple Crisp
The reason that Martha probably keeps this apple crisp simple is that it came from the October 2007 edition of her Everyday Food Magazine.

When I first saw this recipe for Martha Stewart’s Apple Crisp I knew it would be a great recipe. I knew by the ingredients that it would be a recipe that the whole family would enjoy.
We did. We loved this. It was delicious with whipped cream or ice cream.
If you are like my dad you would probably like it with cheddar cheese on top. Does anyone else eat cheddar cheese on apple pie and apple crisp? My dad loves it that way.
My favorite way to eat Martha Stewart’s apple crisp is with whipped topping on top.
No matter how you eat it I think that you will enjoy it. It is the perfect combination of crunchy topping and delicious cinnamon sugar sweetened apples.
The main change I made to the recipe, besides using gluten-free flour blend, was that I cut the apples a lot smaller than the original recipe said to.
