Fall is here!
In case you didn’t already know
The leaves are starting to change colors and fall off the trees…adding another chore to my busy world (raking all them leaves off the sidewalk). Can’t I just leave them there?…
Yay for more chores! NOT.
One thing that is awesome in fall is that Apples are in season, which means the prices for them aren’t stupid crazy.
Personally, I have to say gala apples are my absolute FAVE. It’s not too sour and not too sweet. It has the perfect crisp, at least for me. <—– Hey that kind of rhymes.
I decided I am going to embrace the fall by baking an apple crisp. I love this recipe because it doesn’t call for many ingredients and its super simple. Which means less dirty dishes to wash.
If your craving a slice of apple pie and don’t have the time or patience to actually bake one from scratch, this is a great alternative.
You can enjoy it as is, naked . Or you can pair it with a heaping scoop of vanilla ice cream.
Happy fall baking!
