Apple Crisp is a fall favorite recipe that graces our table often. It's simple enough to make that even those that don't bake can make a truly amazing dessert. It's a favorite on the dessert table for Thanksgiving and Christmas as an alternative to apple pie, but easy enough for any night of the week.

Apple Crisp is an easy to make fall favorite comfort food. It it a simple enough recipe to make for any night of the week for dessert, but also a favorite for the Thanksgiving and Christmas dessert table from Serena Bakes Simply From Scratch.

As a kid whenever we went to a large family gathering there was always an amazing Apple Crisp on the dessert table waiting to be devoured.

This recipe for Apple Crisp is easy enough to make make any night of the week, but still a favorite for the Thanksgiving and Christmas dessert table. It's simply the best!

I used a combination of Granny Smith and Braeburn apples in this crisp. I've used Pinova Apples in the past and love them equally. They are a little harder to come by sometimes.

I find using a blend of apples gives the filling a nice depth of flavor from the sweet and tart apple combination along with plenty of cinnamon, and a little vanilla for warmth. The lemon juicy adds a brightness to the flavor, and really brings the crisp together.

The crisp topping is sweet, but not overly sweet, and extra crunchy to compliment a large scoop of ice cream.
