Last week Nana Helen made an awesome Old Fashioned Apple Crisp using the apples from her apple tree. Apples are my favorite part of fall. I love Apple Cider, Apple Desserts, and Apple scented candles. If you can’t get enough of apples too, then make sure you enter this giveaway.

Old Fashioned Apple Crisp may take some work in the kitchen but it is fairly easy to make. The end result is an amazing, soft filling with an incredibly crispy topping. Perfect with ice cream. Here is another step by step with Nana Helen!

    This sounds delicious! We make an annual trip or two to Nebraska City (home of Arbor Day) every Autumn and pick as many apples as we can afford, then I come home and start the baking and canning. Guess what recipe is going into my book now! Thanks for sharing!

    Thank you so much for sharing this!!! I am from MN where fall time equals apple orchard time and homemade apple crisp time. I have lived in AZ for the past 9 and a half years without my family. AZ does have very little fall season, no apple orchards and definitely no homemade apple crisp! In fact, they don’t know what apple crisp is! (It’s really sad actually!) I am adding this to my “I want now” list! :)
