Fall is my absolute favorite time of year.
Fiery foliage and jumping into leaf piles… crisp mornings and warm spices… comfort food and oversized sweaters. I’m technically December-baby but fall in New England is my jam. There’s nothing else quite like it.
Oh and apple picking. Can’t forget apple picking.
One apple-picking-perk? Apple crisp. There’s nothing quite like sweet and spicy warm apples topped with an super crispy, crumbly crust, right? Last weekend, I got together with a couple of my favorite people (…and can’t forget my fave pup, Pebbles!) to tackle crisp-making.
We worked with a super simple recipe from A Family Feast that Amanda found on Pinterest – and doubled up the recipe to up all of the (20+) apples that we had.
Pebbles was super helpful with peeling…
We had fun peeling, chopping, mixing and crumbling — and followed the recipe almost to the tee. We added more oats than it called for – and I’m glad we did. It was definitely a sweet recipe, but not TOO sweet…but it could have gone there reallllly fast. I think if I use this recipe again, I’d use less brown sugar and add more oats.
I mean…c’mon you can’t really go wrong with a buttery, sweet crust? Really buttery…like Paula-Deen-would-approve buttery.
After 40 minutes of hanging out in the oven, it came out golden brown, bubbly and crunchy….
Not too shabby for a Sunday night??
….and breakfast the next morning. Whoops.

Hey–fruit and oats? Sounds like perfect breakfast food to me!
That looks really delish! Nice job (And the picture of Pebbles is super cute (HA!))
