Cooking and Entertaining: Apple Crisp

apple crisp with vanilla ice cream

I’ve always been a fan of fruit desserts, but now that autumn is here, one of my favorites this time of year is apple crisp. The tartness of the apples is perfectly offset with the slightly sweetened and textured crumb topping.  And a scoop of vanilla ice cream truly makes this dessert over the top!

the ingredients

Cut the cold butter into the crumb mixture until the butter is in pea-sized

this apple peeler/slicer is a gem!
