Apple Crisp is one of my all time favourite baked apple desert. Good news - you don't have to be able to craft a beautiful, flakey pie crust. This apple desert (or breakfast on a special occasion) is super simple, fast and easy to make - and make well.
It is also an easy recipe to alter to suit your tastebuds. Depending on whether or not you enjoy a tart tasting apple or have a super sweet-tooth - the type of apple you select will transform the taste of your baked dish.
You can also reduce the amount of sugar you use and make this treat a little more healthy. When serving for breakfast, try serving with plain, organic greek yogurt and fresh berries. For desert, I would always suggest the tried and true vanilla ice cream!

Fun tip: Try a spiral apple corer - it speeds things up and the kids love to help out!
