Apple Crisp is my favorite fall dessert and this crisp has a secret ingredient that makes it even better!
This apple crisp recipe is from my sister in law Jayna. We had it for the first time years ago when we were visiting her in Pennsylvania and it has been my “Go To” apple crisp recipe ever since. As I remember, it was a nice fall day when she served it!
The thing that makes this apple crisp recipe so good is that it uses graham cracker crumbs in the topping – which is the best part of apple crisp! I love graham crackers, especially dunked in a cold glass of milk. The “crisp” part of this recipe is so good you will want to eat it all by itself – it would be yummy over any type of crisp (berry, peach etc.) or just by itself on top of ice cream! Did I mentioned I love the “crisp” part of apple crisp!!
I like to use a tart green apple like Granny Smith and I use my trusty little apple peeler, corer, slicer to quickly get the apples ready. My apple peeler slices the apples fairly thin. The cook time will depend on how thin your apples are sliced. I don’t like the apples to get mushy like applesauce so I pull it out of the oven as the apples become tender but slightly firm.
Welcome fall with this delicious dessert!
