Apple crisp

I promised another apple post, so here we go. This, friends, is a recipe that has stood the test of time. It is a recipe that is really difficult to mess up. It is a recipe that screams comfort and fall. And it is a recipe that lasts less than a day in our house.

If you want to cut back on calories and sugar, reduce the amount of sugar to 1/2 cup.
