A simple recipe nana made that I always loved. Now my kids enjoy this too and it's quick and easy! Cinnamon and apples...you can't have a bad dessert with these two ingredients.

Sometimes the most simple recipes are the best... and that's the case with this apple crisp. Warm, tender apples and a crunchy, buttery, cinnamon sugar crumble, what's not to love? Serve this no oats apple crisp with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and you have the perfect fall dessert. The Test Kitchen
