Classic Apple Crisp

apple crisp

This dish was published in the Venice Gondolier Flavors of Paradise Magazine. It goes back to my college days. Let’s just say, this classic has been around for more than 25 years and was a family recipe for 25 years before that. My son likes this recipe so much I have to make him his very own batch so he doesn’t have to share it. Super easy and it will make you a hero with family and friends.
