Apple Crisp,

This is easy to make and takes no time at all. Most of the time you need is for peeling all the apples, plus the bake time. I hope you enjoy the apple crisp recipe. Will you try this apple recipe? Of course if you are more traditional you can easily omit the granola just make this a yummy, cinnamon apple crisp.

I love mine served warm just out of the oven. You can top it with ice cream if you are eating it for dessert. We ate it for breakfast with coffee. What a nice weekend treat. Perfect for a fall brunch, an afternoon tea, or any autumn day you want an apple crisp treat!

Oh, yes! It’s like a little bit of autumn in each bite! I added a little more butter than mentioned in the original recipe which I adapted. If you see that it is a bit dry looking during the baking process, add a touch more butter over the top. This will help give it that gooey goodness. This tasty apple crisp is sure to please.
