Easy Apple Crisp
It’s Fall, y’all. Okay, I know it’s not “officially” fall, but it’s close enough and I know a lot of you are ready. I know I’m SO ready so here begins all of the apple and pumpkin recipes! I just got my embarrassing order of fall Bath and Body Works candles so my house is also ready!
Apple crisp seems like the perfect dessert for this transition from summer to fall. Apples are enjoyable year round, but my obsession with them gets way more intense this time of year. Apple crisp is such a comforting dessert for me and just makes me feel cozy and happy!
I also love that it’s pretty simple to make. I’m not a great baker, but it’s pretty hard to mess up a crisp recipe! I love crisps for dinner parties too because everybody loves them and they can easily serve a good number of people.
Chopping all of the apples is what takes the longest here. I personally love honeycrisp apples, but you can use a mixture of different kinds including Fiji or even Granny Smith if you want some tanginess! Of course, no apple crisp is complete with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream on top!
