Don’t you love lazy Fall Sundays? No plans, no reason to leave the house and no checklist of tedious to-dos? ME too. When it’s chilly outside I especially crave warm, comforting foods—and large, comfy sweaters. For lunch I whipped up my favorite lemony lentil soup and then called my mom to ask for some specifics on her classic apple crisp recipe (because moms make the best apple crisp, right?). The result was this delicious, crumbly, happiness-inducing (read: sugar coma) crisp, which I promptly gobbled up while lounging in my Sunday sweats.
Aside from how darn delicious this crisp is, it’s also so uncomplicated to make. No kitchen skills required. Just sliced apples tossed in sugar and cinnamon, topped with more sugar (for good measure) oats, butter, and flour. Easy. And foolproof. Cortland apples are great to use (and probably my fav), but I’ve also used granny smith and Macintosh and they work too.
This apple crisp, served warm and topped with vanilla ice cream, IS SO GOOD.
