Summer Apple Crisp

August 8, 2017

What is one of the easiest, and impressive, desserts you can make? A crisp. Simply put, a crisp is filling with a streusel topping.  But foodies, please don't get it confused with a cobbler, which has a biscuit-like topping. Both are delicious, and both are lovely in the summer. 

 

Why apples? Apples are an all-round fruit in the Pacific Northwest. Not only are they great baked, they are the perfect snack to have on a summer afternoon. This apple filling can be easily used in a pie or cobbler, so save it for future use.
