Apple Crisp is the perfect feel-good dessert for Fall. Since the first day of Fall was yesterday, I had to make my favorite apple dessert!
Ok, so who hasn’t had Apple Crisp? Well, that would be my husband. He had no clue what “Apple Crisp” meant. I was floored, and immediately got excited to make a dessert that would get an approving head nod and thumbs up!
I had most of the ingredients on hand and a second of panic when i looked into the silo of old fashioned oats and realized I forgot to buy more. The stars must have aligned, because I scraped by with a nearly perfect 1/2 cup of them.
Onto the crumb topping..its the best part of the dish. USE YOUR HANDS!
Seriously, its the best way to get all the toppings mixed equally. Don’t even bother getting a fork, its useless unless you melt all the butter. Which I did not, because I wanted the butter chunks for texture.
The Apple filling is plump full of soft apple slices smothered in glazed brown sugar. The mixture of crunchy oats and apples with cinnamon is a spoonful of heaven.
Are you wondering if I got the approving head nob from my husband?
I got more than that.
Brad took a bite, closed his eyes and took a second to pray…that he married me!
This recipe is pretty fantastic! Don’t forget to add the Vanilla Ice Cream on top!
Let me know what you thought?
