Fall in New England means apples. And in our house, apples means apple crisp.
We got to help a special friend celebrate her birthday with a fun apple picking trip. The season is just getting started, so we picked all McIntosh, which are great for a crisp.
I can't remember what cooking blog I saw this trick on, but it's a great one. Using a grater for butter.
The crust on this crisp is divine. I added pecans because in our house, everything needs nuts. Crispy, crunchy, yum.
Served warm with some vanilla ice cream. The perfect treat for a cool fall day.
