Traditional Apple Crisp
Fall apple dishes are always a hit with my family. This fall, my family will be enjoying lots of great apple desserts. I know our Caramel Apple Cookies will be frequent along with this traditional apple crisp dessert. Having great comforting desserts baking in the afternoon always makes me anxious for fall weather.
When I was in grade school and even high school, my favorite school bought dessert was their homemade apple crisp. It was a super simple apple dessert but really tasted great. I would quite often request homemade apple crisp because it was such a tasty after dinner treat too.
Since my family really looks forward to dessert after our family meals, I like to have our desserts made during the day when the kiddos are at school. I can usually whip something quite quickly while the baby naps. When the big kids arrive home from school, the house always has a yummy scent that gets them excited for after dinner dessert.
This apple crisp is one of those super simple recipes that can be made and tossed in the oven in just a few minutes time. The wonderful apple and cinnamon scent has the house smelling like fall in no time. The crunchy streusel makes for a perfect topping. PERFECT!
Just grab yourself some apples (Granny Smith are my favorite), cinnamon, brown sugar, flour, butter, and vanilla. This recipe is so simple that I plan to have the kiddos make the next batch.
1 cup Brown Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla
3/4 cup uncooked Old Fashioned Oats
