Baked Apple Crisp
Oh, how I love the fall season and all of the cool-weather produce. It just makes me want to get in my kitchen to cook and bake fruity things. The thing is, I’m super-relaxed when it comes to making pie crust from scratch. Translation, I’m pretty lazy about it, so I’m always shouting praise to the pioneers of apple crisp and their (delicious) pastry shortcut.
We have an apple tree in our yard, and I honestly can’t keep up with it during the season. Thankfully, the season is long, which means many apple crisps will land in our bellies starting late summer, which is now, which is exactly why I’m bringing you this recipe. You may or may not have an apple tree, but I know you love the convenience and simplicity of this fruity, baked, comfort food that everyone loves, especially with a scoop of ice cream on top.

It’s important to note that you can use just about any sweet, crunchy apple for this recipe. In fact, I’m not sure I can tell you what apples not to use because I’m not convinced there are any that wouldn’t work. But, I always go with sweet and crunchy…and it always works! Oh, and no peeling necessary…unless you absolutely want to.
