Apples are abundant this time of the year. I’ve been enjoying all the different kinds that are available at supermarkets. So, it makes sense that I decided to make this cinnamon apple crisp. I’ve tried some apple crisp at work during treat day and I really enjoyed it. I like this recipe because of its simple and easy to find ingredients. It also includes cinnamon, which makes the apple dessert even tastier. In this dessert, the slices of apples were first coated with sugar, flour and cinnamon and then topped with a coarse crumble. Finally, it was baked for 45 minutes. It came out great and I love the crunchy top and the soft, tender apple filling. I enjoyed this cinnamon apple crisp with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. This is indeed the ultimate autumn dessert.
