Fresh Apple Crisp

    During the fall apples are plentiful so it's wise to make use of them. Recently I had some spare apples so I decided to try an apple crisp. This was one of my favorites as a child. It reminds me of lunches in grade school.
    This was very easy to make, especially since I have one of those little apple slicers. It takes most of the work out of it for you and make peeling easy. I found the inspiration for this in a recipe book that is my cooking "Bible" and is older than all of my kids. Next time I'm thinking a little oatmeal mixed in the topping for crunch would be good. Be sure to add some topping or ice cream to complete the dish and take the tastes over the top.
