Apple Crisp

Hey all! I tried another great recipe as part of my April Challenge! This is recipe numero quatro of cinco. Not quite sure why I went all Spanish on you, but it just felt right.

What do you do when you have a sleeping baby and extra apples on hand? Well, you make Apple Crisp, of course!

I found this recipe on Pinterest and so I decided to give it a try. Boy, I'm glad I did!

In my opinion, Apple Crisp is best served with a side of vanilla ice cream. However, we did not have any plain vanilla ice cream on hand. Guess what? I didn't even miss the ice cream; this Apple Crisp is just that good!
