Our dad isn't a cake guy. Or a pie guy. Or a dessert guy, really. This apple crisp recipe is his one requested dessert. And I totally get why- it's warm, crunchy, fruity, sweet with just the right hint of tart, and just good. I mean, who doesn't like an oatmeal-based crunchy topping on a fruity filling with just the right hint of cinnamon? What's that? No one? That's what I thought.
So go make this. Top it with vanilla ice cream (Tillamook, of course), or whipped cream. It's a perfect dessert for any night. Or day. Or breakfast. It's oatmeal & a fruit- it totally counts.
