As I promised, many apple recipes are on the way! One of the first things I think of when I think apples and fall is apple crisp! Although there are hundreds of different apple crisp recipes out there this is my go-to apple crisp recipe from my Grandma Pat, that I turn to time and time again. There are no bells and whistles with this recipe, no pizaz or fancy ingredients, just down right plain and simple goodness!
The smell of this crisp cooking in the oven is enough to bring me to my knees, and is better than any candle or air freshener known to mankind. Did you know in the old days before air fresheners and fancy candles came around housewives would bring a pot of water with a couple of cinnamon sticks to a boil and let it simmer on the stove top all day for an inexpensive way to perfume the home? Now you know, and will never have to buy another $10 candle again!
