Jared's Favorite Apple Crisp!

What is it about the this time of year, the cooler nights and Autumn in the air, that causes us to crave the warm aromas of vanilla, cinnamon, or coffee?  There is just something heart-warming to the soul about pulling a steamy apple pie or crisp out of the oven!  What a delicious surprise for your family at the end of a long week of work and/or school. Surprise them as they come in from school, or on a cool brisk Saturday after 'the' big game. A dessert dotted with butter and brown sugar somehow always puts a smile on my face and the faces of my little family!

This recipe comes straight to you from our son Jared. During his senior year in college he became interested in cooking. Apples and steel cut oats being two of his favorite foods, he concocted this recipe from 3 different recipes he found on the Internet. It truly is the Best apple crisp I've ever had!  It's an easy one to make and calls for staple pantry items in addition to a yellow cake mix that puts this crisp over the top.

Mr.P is usually more of a pie kind of guy, but when Jared cooks up this crisp he can hardly keep his fork out of it!! Whether you eat it with a frosty glass of milk or a big scoop of vanilla ice cream, this crumbly apple crisp is sure to satisfy your cinnamon-apple cravings. Hope you and your little family enjoy this as much as we do here at Porter Central!
