Apple Crisp

Ella and I LOVE to be in the kitchen together. She is quite the little helper. It doesn’t matter if I’m taking out a frozen pizza or making a Thanksgiving Meal, she is right there beside me!

We’ve been making quite a few trips over the past few weeks to our local Orchard called The Apple Barn. They have the most amazing little store full of fresh-baked goodies and bread, canned jams and jellies, fresh eggs, butter and cheese, homemade apple cider, mums, pumpkin and of course, APPLES! We’ve been eating them with every meal and every snack. They are just too darn good!

We first made an Apple Crisp recipe I found online and it was YUKO! But, I called up my mother-in-law who makes the best Apple Crisp and asked her to share her recipe with me. It’s always so good and it was exactly what we had been craving!
