A Crumble or a Crisp?
Both a crumble and a crisp have fruit on the bottom with a layer of topping, so the words tend to be used interchangeably. Crumble is often used in the UK, while Americans call it crisp and often use oats or nuts in the topping. In this baking kit, the oats, spices, and flour are all mixed together, so you don’t have to add anything but butter.
Your Baking Kit Includes…
Crunch Pak’s apple crisp baking kit includes fresh, juicy apples already sliced and peeled for you. All you have to do is pour the bag of apples into your baking dish, and that’s it. It takes out all of the prep work for you but still allows you to serve a nutritious dessert that your kids will love. No rinsing, peeling, or slicing. It’s all done for you.
In a from-scratch apple crisp recipe, you would have to measure out the sugar, flour, rolled oats, spices, baking powder, and baking soda. But the baking kit includes a small packet with all of the dry ingredients. No need to measure out anything. And you’re less likely to make a mess for less clean up afterward. Simply mix the dry ingredients with the melted butter, and you’ve got an easy apple crisp topping for your classic dessert.

You’ll need five tablespoons of butter to mix with the dry ingredients from your baking kit. This is how we make the crumble topping. Simply melt the butter in the microwave and mix it with the dry ingredients until it develops a sand like texture. This is the most cooking you’ll have to do with this baking kit, making it beginner-friendly and saves you time. We used salted butter to balance the sweetness.
If you’ve run out of butter, be sure to get some from the dairy section in your grocery store. Otherwise, you’re all set to get started on your apple crisp baking kit.
How to Make an Apple Crisp With Your Baking Kit
Step 1: Use a knife to cut the butter into smaller pieces. Add them to a microwave-safe bowl and heat for one minute or until melted.
Step 2: Pour the melted butter into a large mixing bowl. Open the packet of dry ingredients from your apple crisp baking kit and add it to the mixing bowl with the butter. Use a fork to mix the ingredients until they are combined and develop a sandlike texture. Then, set aside for later.
Step 3: Pour the bag of apple slices into an ungreased, 8-inch baking dish. Use your hands to spread them out into an even layer, covering the bottom of the baking dish.
Step 4: Pour the crumble mixture over the top of the apples and use your fingers to spread the topping as evenly as you can.
Step 5: Bake your apple crisp for 40-45 minutes until the apples are tender and the topping is golden brown.
Step 6: Top with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and serve warm.
How to Store Your Apple Crisp
Tightly wrap your apple crisp and store it in the fridge for up to three days to keep it fresh longer. Want to have an apple crips on hand? Wrap it in plastic wrap, then aluminum foil, and freeze it for up to three months.
