Apple Applique Block and Apple Crisp Recipe

Apple Applique Block and Apple Crisp Recipe

I was going to start this post talking about how much I love fall, but I’ve already said that… many times. Instead, I’m just going to introduce our Apple Applique Block, tell you I made it to fit a 6″ x 6″ block, and remind you that you can enlarge or reduce the pattern to meet your needs. As usual, I’ll tell you that you can find the pattern for the Apple Applique Block HERE or in our FREE Applique Patterns. I will also give my ubiquitous “Enjoy”!

Having fulfilled the status quo… I’m going to share our family’s “mostest” favorite recipe for using apples… Apple Crisp. This recipe originally came from an early 70s Betty Crocker cookbook, but since my family LOVES the crispy top, over time I wound up doubling and even tripling the top. So, here is the double topping version of our Apple Crisp. We usually serve it with a scoop of Vanilla Ice Cream, and a shot of whipped cream. Enjoy!

4 cups pared tart apples (about 4 medium)
1 1/2 cup brown sugar (packed)
1 cup Gold Medal Flour
1 cup oats
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
2/3 cup butter, softened

Heat over to 375. Grease square pan, 8x8x2 inches. Place apples slices in pan. Mix remaining ingredients thoroughly. Sprinkle over apples.

Bake 30 minutes for until apples are tender and topping is golden brown. Serve warm with ice cream and/or whipped cream. It is also delicious plain.




  1. Cute as always. I haven’t had Apple Crisp in years. I usually bake pies. Forgot how fast the prep was. I will be making this sooon and using the apple applique on something.

    1. Yummy! Autumn is my favourite time of year too!

      In Australia we call that recipe Apple Crumble and make it with our Granny Smith Apples, really tart green apples. I also make and apple tea cake that has that topping, just perfect for taking on a picnic!

      Thanks for the new applique block. I am in love with your website!

      Best wishes,


      1. Thanks Katie… Mind sharing your apple tea cake recipe? I love all apply recipes!!!

  2. I love it! I have to find something to apple-applique. Hmmm… Maybe the end of a fleece scarf? I’ll be linking as well.

  3. I just wanted to say a big THANK YOU for compiling all of your applique patterns in one handy spot and for so generously sharing them. I used the apple, the cupcake, the cherries, and the egg to make some postcards for a swap. I kind of cheated on the applique because there was no stitching involved, but they were still so cute! Thanks again!

  4. Desde Espau00F1a te mando las gracias por compartir algo tan maravilloso con el resto del mundo y darnos las facilidades para intentar hacerlo.

    Me cuesta mucho entender el idioma, pero las imu00E1genes son suficientes para saber lo que quieres decir.

    Espero poder seguir disfrutando de tu arte.
