Grilled Apple Crisp

  • Level: Easy
  • Yield: 6 to 8 servings (One 10- to 12-inch cast-iron skillet or one 8-inch square cake pan)
  • Total: 1 hr
  • Active: 20 min


5 cups peeled, cored and sliced Granny Smith apples

3/4 cup all-purpose flour

3/4 cup old-fashioned oats

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1/2 cup light brown sugar

3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Pinch kosher salt

1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter


  1. Prepare a grill for indirect heat. If using a charcoal grill, build the hot coals on one side only. If using a gas grill, heat one side only to medium-high heat.
  2. Add the apples to a 10- to 12-inch cast-iron skillet, filling it almost to the top. Combine the flour, oats, sugars, cinnamon and salt in a large bowl. Cut the butter into small cubes and add to the flour mixture. Using your hands, press the butter into the dry ingredients until it forms a course crumble. Sprinkle evenly over the apples.
  3. Place the skillet over indirect heat, cover the grill and cook until the apples are completely tender when pierced with a knife and the crumble is golden brown and crispy, 30 to 40 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.
  4. (Alternatively, you can bake this in an 8-inch square cake pan in a 350 degrees F oven for 45 minutes to 1 hour.)

Just wonderful! Make this often. Simple but so good! Warm or room temperature- all good. Added plums and it was awesome.
