  • 1 portion apple crisp


How to store apple crisp

  • Allow the apple crisp to cool, then cover it with a paper towel and wrap the whole thing in plastic wrap.
  • You can leave the apple crisp at room temperature for two days, or you can refrigerate it for up to five days. For longer-term storage, you can freeze the apple crisp.
  • Make sure the apple crisp is room temperature all the way through before adding any sort of covering. If you cover the crisp prematurely, it won’t stay crispy for long.

Reheating apple crisp

  • You can reheat apple crisp in the microwave or the oven. The microwave is best for individual portions.
  • Simply place the apple crisp on a plate and microwave it for 30-60 seconds.
    The topping might go a bit soggy in the microwave, but you can fix this by heating it in the toaster oven for a few minutes. Or by putting it under the broiler.
  • For a whole apple crisp, preheat the oven to 350 degrees and heat for 15-20 minutes.
    The crust can go a bit dry if you're not careful. To avoid this, either keep foil over the crisp until the last 5 minutes of reheating, or sprinkle some melted butter over the top of the apple crisp.

How to restore a soggy apple crisp

  • If your apple crisp topping is still soggy even after reheating it in the oven here’s a quick fix.
  • Scoop the topping off the apples and spread it thinly on a baking tray.
  • Put the baking tray in the oven and heat it for 5 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Because the topping is spread thinly, it will crisp up a lot quicker than when it’s piled on top of an apple base.

How to freeze apple crisp

  • You can freeze baked or unbaked apple crisp. For both types, wrap the apple crisp in plastic wrap followed by a layer of aluminum foil. This double protection ensures your apple crisp isn’t affected by freezer burn. The apple crisp will last up to 3 months in the freezer.
  • You can cook/reheat it straight from frozen. Or you can thaw it in the fridge overnight and then cook/reheat it.
