Apple Crisp

This is an old post. I had been sitting on it since the fall waiting to transcribe the recipe from my cookbook. A snowy night in front of the fire is the perfect time to transcribe recipes.

I made this apple crisp in the fall after picking up some apples with my family. Normally I would pick the apples myself but it was a cold and windy fall day and we had Catie (age 3) with us and purchasing already picked apples was definitely the way to go. I certainly make apple crisp every fall and love this recipe. I love the spice and oats in the topping. Pure comfort.
