Rich and Creamy Apple Crisp (Heirloom Recipe)

Family Favorites


Another recipe from my grandmother, the culinary instructor's files. Saving the recipe here so that my children will have it. When I was little, she would make this for me often. How wonderful it would smell baking when we came in the door!

A slightly different take on traditional Apple Crisp. Made with apples, rich creamy evaporated milk, brown sugar and oats, your family will request this easy dessert often!

Serve warm with fresh whipped cream or vanilla ice cream. Enjoy! Peg
