Easy Apple Crisp

easy apple crisp recipe

This cloudy weather has me dreaming of autumn and winter. Meaning my mind is wandering off to fall baking! Apples, pumpkins, and more. This apple crisp is my new fall favorite. I’ve loved my mom’s apple crisps for years and finally decided to learn how to make my own. 

The streusel is crispy but the apples are tender, what more could you ask for? I guess you could top this treat with a scoop of dairy-free vanilla ice cream. But I prefer this dessert on its own! It’s the perfect comfort food you crave on days leading up to fall and the holidays.

What are your favorite fall desserts? What dairy-free and egg-free treats do you want me to post next?

Before we get too far into fall baking, let’s have a little lesson on the different types of popular desserts and what makes them different. The biggest debate or cause of confusion comes from crisp vs. crumble. I’m so thankful I found the answer so I know for sure when talking about my favorite treats. Crisps contain oats, crumbles do not. Simple enough, right? Well… As time has gone on, the two words are now synonymous. At least we know though! Oh, and we can’t forget about cobblers. Those are easy, they are topped with biscuits. Now you can wow your guests at upcoming holiday parties!
