I was first introduced to Apple Crisp when I was a young girl in school. I always loved it, but it wasn't until I got married that I learned how to make it. My mom told me how to season the apples and make the basic crumb topping that goes with so many desserts. It's also wonderful on sweet potato casserole. I hope you enjoy this simple dessert that's perfect in the fall when fresh, local apples are abundant.
