Recipe Notes
  • Can Apple Crisp be made ahead? Absolutely! You can make this dessert up to 2 days in advance. To do so, bake the crisp according to recipe instructions. Allow to cool completely, cover, and refrigerate.
  • Should Apple Crisp be refrigerated? If you plan to enjoy the crisp on the same day that it is baked, then you do not need to refrigerate it before serving. If you don’t plan to serve the crisp on the same day as baking, then the dessert needs to be refrigerated overnight.
  • How long does crisp last? It will keep in the refrigerator for at least 2-3 days.
  • Can Easy Apple Crisp be frozen? Yes, you can freeze the crisp before or after baking! To freeze this dessert after baking, allow to cool completely. Wrap tightly with a double layer of foil and freeze for up to 3 months.
  • How to reheat Apple Crisp: If frozen, allow the crisp to thaw in the refrigerator overnight. To reheat, warm the crisp in a 350 degree F oven (uncovered) for 20-25 minutes, or until heated through.
