  • 5 lbs. McIntosh apples or Macoun apples
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • zest of 1 orange
  • 2 Tbsp. orange juice
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. ground nutmeg

For the Streusel Topping:

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 packed cup light brown sugar
  • 1 cup oatmeal
  • 1/2 lb. butter diced and chilled
  • 1/2 tsp. kosher salt


  • Heat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Butter a 9 x 14 x 2 inch oval baking dish or a 9 x 13 inch cake pan.
  • Peel 5 lbs. McIntosh or Macoun apples. Cut the apples into wedges or large chunks and place into a large bowl.
  • Zest 1 lemon and add to the apples along with 2 Tbsp. lemon juice. Zest 1 orange and add to the apples along with 2 Tbsp. orange juice.
  • Add 1/2 cup granulated sugar, 2 tsp. cinnamon, and 1 tsp. nutmeg to the apples. Stir the apples until they are completely coated in the sugar, spices, and citrus.

For The Streusel Topping:

  • Dice 1/2 lb. (2 sticks) of cold butter and add them to a mixing bowl. Add 1 1/2 cups AP flour, 3/4 cup sugar, 3/4 packed cup light brown sugar, 1 cup oats, and 1/2 tsp. kosher salt to the bowl. Mix using the paddle attachment of a stand mixer until the mixture is the size of small peas.
  • Pour the apples into the buttered pan and spread evenly across the bottom. Pour the streusel topping on top of the apples and coat them evenly.
  • Place the pan in the oven and bake for 1 hour. The top should get golden brown and the apples bubbly.
  • Remove pan from oven and allow to cool slightly before serving.



  • Make sure to dice the butter before adding it to the mixer. You will have a big mess if you add butter whole.
  • Every oven is a bit different. Make sure to check your apple crisp a little before the stated time to make sure it doesn't get overdone.
