I know I say all the time that pumpkin is my quintessential fall food, but man apples also hold a special place on my table in the fall too.
The second the heaviness of summer starts to dissipate, I have an urge to make apple crisp. Not just any apple crisp, THIS apple crisp.
It does not have oats in the recipe. I don’t have anything against oats. I will eat an oatmeal cookie, but given other options it isn’t my first choice. I will not eat oatmeal for breakfast, unless they are steal cut.
I came across this recipe years ago when I collected cookbooks. My favorite at the time was Beat This! by Ann Hodgman. I did not use the apple crisp recipe from that book since I don’t care for oats in my apple crisp. But if I did, I would have used hers.
