Apple Crisp

Apple Crisp -easy, fall dessert made in mini mason jars. Perfect served warm with vanilla ice-cream.

 

This is such an easy, delicious fall dessert.  This is the recipe my mom used when I was a little girl.

I’ve updated it a little by serving it in individual cute little mason jars, because everything tastes better in a  mason jar, right?  Or, you can bake it in one big 8 x 8 baking dish.

When I was in grade two, I had to bake a snack for an after school girls club.  Running short on time, I had to come home from school for lunch the day I needed it and quickly make it.  My mom had carefully pre-measured all the ingredients out for me, and prepared all the apples already for me when I got there.  All I had to do was mix together the pre-measured crisp ingredients and put it together.  That night after the club meeting, she asked me how the apple crisp turned out.  I replied “it was so good Mom, way better than when you make it.”  She’s reminded me of it just about every time we’ve had apple crisp since.  What can I say Mom, I’ve always been a great cook. 😉
