  1. I remember when I was a kid (in New England) we made apple pies (occasionally the crisps) with Cortland apples, which have that perfect balance of sweet and tart, keep their crispness during baking, and taste better than any other apple combination! However, I don’t see them outside of NE. Yes, gotta have vanilla ice cream! But you’re just showing off in this one! 😋🙏❤️

  2. This is an amazing apple crisp recipe! I will try, minus the homemade ice cream. Thank you Chef Billy for sharing. It really looks delicious! Sometimes a muesli mix is also nice in place of plain oats or mix them together.

  3. I put lemon juice lemon rind. Cinnamon brown sugar. in my apple base. Love the recipe videos. You really inspire Thank you from Canada 🇨🇦

  4. You are a super nice guy and we love your videos. It sure would be great if you could get out of the habit of saying boom all the time. It’s one of those things that really serves no purpose and it can cat really old when used so much.

  5. Yummy! I’d eat either one, pie or crisp! I tried a recipe that works great in a pinch. The only thing different is using a Betty Crocker oatmeal cookie mix with a stick of butter. Cut in butter and mix. Place this over your apples. 🙂😊

  6. Billy ! You guys are Tops!!! Not only easy excellent video but full directions in a simple scroll below, THANK YOU !!! We like 👍🏼 your vidz every time 🍎🍏

  7. Billy Billy. No hat. A dead giveaway that a guy is bald is that he always has a hat on. I lost that bet. You have hair!!!
    This is one of those great desserts that my wife makes. The other day we took it to the next level by making a Creme Anglaise. Oh My Gosh. I will never eat apple crisp again with ice cream

  8. Gaaaah, Im making this and forgot to add the pecans to the topping -_- Either way, I'll add them on top after baking, no problem.

    Edit: I used this recipe as a base and made a few changes. Halved the recipe for a small pan. Added a splash of lemon juice to the apples, along with a splash of vanilla, and a splash of bourbon. Swapped the flour in the apples for cornstarch. The end result was sooooooooo delicious!

  9. We love apple crisp and simply aren’t into pies. Too heavy. Your crisp looks delicious. I’ll have to add walnuts to my streusel topping the next time. You’re right about mixing tart apples with sweet ones. If I don’t have a tart apple or two to add to the mix, I sneak in a bit of vinegar for contrast. Thank you for this.

  10. Billy! Nice job on this! I love how you MIXED the apples! I typically go with granny smith – but the mixture was great! (I also use a fork to break up the topping). The video was great – I enjoyed the technique sharing, and recipe –and OMG homemade Vanilla Ice Cream?? WOW! Thank you!

  11. If you were a sweet, old-fashioned chef, you'd have included "rubbing-in" to make the crumble topping.
    Hands in bowl, and rub the flour and butter between your thumbs and index and middle fingers, until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.
    That's what I was taught, a few lifetimes ago – is it still taught?

  12. I also prefer apple crisp over apple pie. This recipe looks very similar to my wife's. I like the idea of the walnuts in the streusel topping. Will have to try.
