Who doesn't love the fall? Beautiful scenery, your favorite sweater and boots and of course pumpkin and apple picking! What is better than a fresh picked apple? A dessert made from fresh picked apples!
After going to a local orchard on Saturday, I decided to make apple crisp for dessert. I know how to make a basic apple crisp but decided to look up some recipes online to see if I wanted to try something a little different. I came across this recipe and decided to give it a try.
It was amazing!! The cake mix was such a great idea. I read a lot of the comments and from the comments came up with my own variation. After the apples were cut up I squeezed lemon juice on top and sprinkled some cinnamon on them. I also added about a teaspoon of vanilla extract to the water.
As for the topping, I added a 3/4 cup of oats and added about 5 tablespoons of melted butter. When I make the dessert again I will probably use half of the cake mix, a full cup of oats and 6 tablespoons of butter. The topping was more of a soft topping than a crunchy topping most crisps have.
What is so great about an apple crisp is there is almost no way to mess up. Add the basic ingredients and you are going to have a delicious dessert. Make it a la mode for an extra special treat!
