Apple Crisp

Sorry that it's not a great picture, we dug in before I could snap a good shot!

There are SO many things that I love about fall. The leaves turn beautiful colors, it's jeans and t-shirt weather, my birthday is in the fall, and APPLES GALORE!! As much as I love apples, I've never made an apple crisp before. I was having my brothers over for a casual dinner and wanted a yummy dessert to leave them with. As you know, I'm all for simple so I thought I'd try an apple crisp for the first time.

While it was simple, there was a lot of work involved with peeling and slicing the apples. Now I understand why my mother-in-law has one of those apple peelers where you crank the handle and it just peels for you!! Once that was done it was pretty quick and easy. I actually made it and then baked it about 5 hours later and it was divine!! The right amount of sweetness from the cinnamon and brown sugar on the tart green granny smith apples. Total deliciousness!
