Our whole family just loves this apple crisp recipe! It’s a sweet, yummy, scrumptious dessert. I actually love sharing, and receiving, recipes. This is the apple crisp recipe that we used in my home growing up. It definitely is a very sweet dessert, so if you don’t like yours as sweet, you can adjust the amount of sugar. Normally I tend to like a tarter apple, like a McIntosh or Jonathon, but this time I used Gala apples.
I also use this same recipe with fresh peaches for peach crisp. It’s delicious too.
