Apple Crisp is one of those desserts that just screams autumn. Cinnamon mingling with brown sugar, all swirled in with gooey apples and finished off with an oatmeal studded crust. It doesn’t get more ‘fallish’ then that, does it? And with a big bag of freshly picked apples sitting patiently in the kitchen, this recipe was begging to be put to use. Speaking of bagged apples, by the way, I can’t get over how fast they’ve been going down lately. I think I had forgotten what a fresh, crisp apple tasted like until this week, and now I simply can’t get enough of them. 😀
Anyways, back to the apple crisp. Some people insist on topping theirs with icecream. Others, like me, argue that a dollop of cool whip is where it’s at. We happened to have vanilla icecream in the house tonight, so that’s what I went with. Either way, I don’t think you could go wrong. 😉
