This Apple Crisp recipe is family favorite that is perfect for any time of the year or any occasion. It is one of my favorite fall desserts to make the day after we go apple picking. Serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and whipped cream for a delicious apple dessert.
As a kid, my mother used to make this apple crisp with no oats every year for Thanksgiving and Christmas and I still look forward to visiting her for the holidays, knowing her famous dessert will be on the table.
