Family Favorite Fruit Dessert

Apple Crisp

Apple Crisp

I have been making this Apple Crisp, or slight variation of it, since I was a little girl. I received a cookbook for kids and this was my very favorite recipe in it. I’ve tried many recipes over the years, but this one remains my go to recipe, I don’t even bother trying others anymore. In addition to this being fantastically delicious, it is incredibly easy. Minus peeling and cutting up the apples, the rest comes together in minutes. It’s addictive it’s so good, it’s very difficult to resist eating it all when it is in the house.

Apples are one of my favorite fruits. They are something we eat year round. This recipe feels like fall, so that is when we make it most often. Plus we can visit the local apple orchards and get fresh apples off the tree to make batches of this come September. Irresistible.
