I have been on a "crisp" making kick lately. They are so simple to make, even when your busy, there is always time to make a fruit crisp. .....there is ALWAYS time for something sweet!
Do you have a sweet tooth? Just today my sister and I were talking about how I have such a sweet tooth and she doesn't, but her daughter does, and mine doesn't....how does that happen? I need a little something sweet everyday or I would die. No, not really, but I did just finish making and eating that whole plate full pictured below and I'm already thinking about another dessert I want to bake.
We all have out own crisp recipes and all are good. Besides sharing with you these recipes, I like to keep them on my blog for my own personal use and o-r-g-a-n-i-z-a-t-i-o-n. It really helps because I am not.
This is one of my favorites. Apples, cranberries, and oats are so old-fashioned and homey. They are saying "hello autumn"! Plus makes your house smell so good!!
