A classic recipe for Apple Crisp. Baked chopped apples topped with a mixture of oats and brown sugar. Excellent for breakfast or dessert and definitely with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!
Sometimes there is just nothing better than a good old fashioned dessert like Apple Crisp. It’s sweet, creamy, apple-y and cinnamon-y. Yes. Please. And I will eat it for breakfast too. But only after the kids are in school so that I don’t have to share…oops, did I say that out loud? 😉
Crisps are my go to dessert. They’re easy to make and they are so versatile…you can use any fruit you have around for crisps…apples, peaches, rhubarb. In fact, the ripe fruit that no one wants to eat is perfect for putting into crisps.
But apple crisp is definitely our favourite…soft baked apples with a buttery warm cinnamon oat topping. So good. It tastes like an apple pie only it’s much easier to make.
