Dan's Father's Day Apple Crisp

Rose Mary Mogan


I created this recipe for my husband for Father's Day,& because I wanted it to be special I used ingredients and steps from 3 different recipes. Results were AWESOME. I also used the KORINTJE CINNAMON 3% OIL. The same kind of cinnamon used to make the CINNABONS. The flavor is amazing. Combine that with butter, and Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla Extract, you have nothing but a winner. My husband was so pleased, when he is happy I am happy. The caramel flavors blended together as it cooked in the oven and the aroma was to die for. NOTHING BUT GOODNESS for a special hubby that works hard all year.
