Warm Cinnamon Apple Crisp

This is an easy recipe for Warm Cinnamon Apple Crisp.

Apple orchards are a sensory wonderland. The sound of leaves crunching underfoot, the aroma of ripe apples in the air, and the coolness of an apple’s skin as you pluck it from a branch—these are experiences supermarket shopping can’t replicate. There’s a certain satisfaction in biting into an apple you’ve picked yourself, knowing it hasn’t traveled thousands of miles or sat in storage. It’s the epitome of freshness. Plus, turning these apples into homemade ciders, sauces, or desserts amplifies the farm-to-table experience, allowing one to savor the full journey from tree to treat.

Just before the official start of fall, we hit the orchards and came back with 56 apples, 7 different varieties. The baby went crazy again learning that you could pick fruit from a tree and Bailey ran around to find the best apples and have Joey hoist her up to get them. The best ones are always at the top!

The next day we made Apple Pie but when we cough cough…ate…too much of the pie dough for my 9 inch pie plate…I quick transformed it into Warm Cinnamon Apple Crisp. Mixing apple pie filling with quick oats makes for a crisp and easy dessert.

We went a little overboard on apple picking but had plenty to share, go around and bake with. Grab some apples, slice them up and you’re in business with Warm Apple Crisp within 30 minutes. Read on for the complete recipe and tips to making Warm Cinnamon Apple Crisp.
