  • 6 large apples (such as Granny Smith or Honeycrisp), peeled, cored, and sliced
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • A pinch of saffron threads
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cold and cubed
  • Vanilla ice cream or whipped cream, for serving (optional)


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9×13-inch baking dish with butter or cooking spray.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the sliced apples and lemon juice. Toss gently to coat the apples evenly.
  3. Spread the coated apples evenly in the prepared baking dish.
  4. In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, rolled oats, brown sugar, ground cinnamon, and saffron threads until well combined.
  5. Add the cold, cubed butter to the dry mixture. Using a pastry cutter or your fingers, work the butter into the mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  6. Sprinkle the crumb mixture evenly over the apples in the baking dish, covering them completely.
  7. Place the baking dish in the preheated oven and bake for 40-45 minutes, or until the topping is golden brown and the apples are tender and bubbling.
  8. Once done, remove the Saffron Apple Crisp from the oven and allow it to cool slightly before serving.
  9. Serve warm, topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream, if desired. Enjoy the irresistible blend of saffron-infused sweetness and comforting apple goodness!
