Autumn in central New Jersey means an abundance of fresh apples from local farms, which translates into some delicious hot fruit selections at my bed and breakfast, the Whistling Swan Inn. There is nothing I like better than hot apple crisp, whether served in the morning or as a dessert with lots of chocolate almond ice cream on top. Mmm, mmm, good.
I’ve tried many recipes from gourmet sources such as Bon Appetit and Epicurious, and even some from the Food Network. But none even come close to the recipe in my old (1981) Betty Crocker Cookbook.
This morning, Debbie, one of my guests from Texas, to my great delight, told me she was following my blog. She loved the apple crisp so much that she asked for it to be posted. Here it is…enjoy.
