This sweet apple crisp pie is packed full of thinly sliced apples and topped with a perfectly crunchy topping. This is your new favorite fall pie!
As my blog name implies, I live in Boston and I love to bake.
My Hubby serves as my number one taste tester and even though he claims he’s not a big dessert guy, he has learned to enjoy the variety of cakes, cupcakes, cookies, and bars that I whip up to relieve the stress of my 9-5 desk job.
Making this apple pie was tough for me.
You see, I’ve been holding on to every last second of summertime this year.
I’ve been stubborn about admitting that fall is actually here.
And I love fall – it’s definitely my favorite season. The cooler weather, football, and food are all awesome!
But my heart just hasn’t been in it this year.
I think it’s because we had an especially brutal winter last year. I always say that the summers in Boston make living through the winters worthwhile. I figure mother nature owed us an extra-long summer this year.
But then it happened. Hubby and I went apple picking.
It’s hard to turn down an invite from my one-year-old nephew to spend the afternoon picking apples and laughing.
So then we had about 20 pounds of apple in our kitchen.
Hubby requested apple pie. But you see, I don’t really like making pie.
I don’t know why, it’s just not my thing. And I wanted to make apple crisp.
Then I remembered this recipe.
It’s the perfect combination of apple pie and apple crisp. It’s delicious warm for an afternoon snack. Or breakfast. Or really any time of day.
