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.


Apple Crisp

This is a tried and tested recipe that never fails.

Awww! You are so sweet to pass on an award to me, THANK YOU!!! And, I have a special place in my MN heart for fellow twin cities sisters!! Your website is seriously one of my favorites - I love your pasta salad (the one with summer sausage, and everything else but the kitchen sink!) and I've made it several times!

I love that you love your sugar highs - check out my latest post for Nutella Tart - that one should be right up your sugar alley!
