It's apple season! This is one of my favorite times of the year because I love most varieties of apples. This is the time when you might go apple picking or harvest apples if you are lucky enough to have an apple tree. Our apple tree produces a ton of apples this time of year. I always find myself asking "What can I do with lots of apples?" One delicious answer to this question is apple crisp. Apple crisp is one of my favorite apple desserts and this Homemade Apple Crisp is one that we make often during apple season. The apples are spiced and cooked to perfection and the crumbly topping gives it just the right amount of crunch. Top this with some ice cream and prepare for dessert heaven!
