One thing I love about fall is all the delicious fresh apples. I like to always have apples on hand this time of year. Recently however, I ran into a problem where I had too many apples. They were beginning to bruise making them not so good for eating but great for baking. I found this Apple Crisp recipe and it is so easy. I even had all the ingredients already on hand! This is a recipe I will definitely make again and again, experimenting with different fruit and even trying individual portion sizes for when I have one of those last minute dessert cravings.
