If fall had a taste, this might be it. Though I’ve burned myself out on apple pie (perhaps forever), I don’t think I’ll ever tire of just good, old-fashioned apple crisp. This is my favorite, tried and true recipe. It’s super easy and smells sooo good and serving it with some great vanilla ice cream might make you the family’s super hero.
We are cinnamon fans at this house so to any recipes that I would add cinnamon, I add a LOT of cinnamon. Don’t be surprised when I tell you to add 1 Tablespoon of cinnamon along with 2 Tablespoons of flour and about 3/4 c. of sugar to the apples and mix it all up well.
Now, slowly pour 1/2 c. of water over the apples.
Pour the topping over the apples. Bake the whole thing at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes until the topping is golden brown and the whole house smells like heaven.
Serve warm with vanilla bean ice cream, and maybe give me a call. I may want a bite.
