Before I met my husband’s parents, I had never had anything like apple crisp before. My mother-in-law makes it for dessert every few months, so I had to get her recipe. It reminds me of apple pie, but without the crust, and crunchy. It’s a little hard to explain, but trust me, it’s delicious! She usually triples the recipe for the crisp part, but that’s too much for me. When I make it, I double the crisp topping and it’s perfect. Apple Crisp is great on it’s own, and even better when it’s nice and warm and served with a scoop (or two) of vanilla ice cream!
