The other night I thought that apple crisp sounded fantastic. I remembered I had on fairly large granny smith apple hiding in my fridge so I Googled "apple crisp" and This Recipe from Betty Crocker was the first thing in the results. It looked easy and Betty Crocker has never failed me before so I tried it out. Now I only had 1 apple so I didn't make the full recipe. I cut the quantities to the ingredients for the topping in half. It tasted great. Maybe next time I would toss the apples in a itty-bitty, tiny amount of sugar to make it a little gooier but it still tasted great without it. Betty Crocker didn't say to peel the apples, but I peeled them anyway. It just sounded better that way.
