Easy Apple Crisp Recipe

Here’s another EASY recipe that my family enjoys this time of year.  

I still remember the first time I went searching for a recipe for apple crisp

a few years after I was married; long before the internet and blogs.  

 My husband and I spent a Saturday at a local apple farm picking apples one weekend.

When I went into work on Monday, a co-worker shared her recipe for apple crisp with me.

Twenty five years later, I still make the same apple crisp recipe.
