APPLE CRISP

My husband John is always on the search for the perfect apple crisp.
He orders it at every restaurant and is always disappointed…not enough crumble on top, too dry, apples too mushy…you get the drift.
This apple crisp, however, he loved. I have always thought it’s bold to label a dish as “the best” or “perfect” because you set some really high expectations but I have no qualms about calling this the Perfect Apple Crisp because it was just that good.
What I love about crisps versus pies is that there’s no pie crust involved. I’m terrible at pie crusts (I tell you all about it in my Apple Crisp Pizza post) but there’s nothing to mess up here.
Just peel, core, and slice the apples. Not too thick, not too thick.
 
Sprinkle on some cinnamon sugar…
Pile on the brown sugar and oats crumble….This Perfect Apple Crisp is one that we claim as the best. It's 9x13 pan full of sweetened apples and a thick crumble layer with brown sugar and oatmeal. the-girl-who-ate-everything.com
If you aren’t good at pie crusts, try this Apple Crisp for Thanksgiving instead of apple pie. Trust me…you won’t miss your pie a bit.
