Easy Apple Crisp Recipe
Apple season is in full swing around here in New England. We have the pleasure and blessings of having tons of beautiful orchards scattered around the northeast that have such beautiful crops, hayrides, pumpkins, and lots of fall fun! I love apple picking season because for an avid baker and cook like myself, it means lots of yummy apple recipes for my family.
The latest dessert that I concocted was my go-to recipe for Easy Apple Crisp. It is made with your choice of tart apples, cinnamon, nutmeg, flour, and butter. I like to turn to this apple crisp recipe when I need a quick snack for my kids that is less work and time than an apple pie. You get all the buttery flavors and “crisp” of a pie without having to roll out dough and all that work that equals a full pie.
Don’t get me wrong, I do love to make pie too but I am remodeling my kitchen so counter space is limited. Plus, I didn’t have extra pie crusts because I have been a bit lazy in the dough department lately. That’s a main reason why apple crisp is just as good as pie in my book! Plus, it goes together with vanilla bean ice cream and makes a heavenly dessert.
