Between picking apples with Audley as well as a trip back home for a visit with my Momma to one of our favorite orchards, we have a house full of apples right now! We have Granny Smith, Rome Beauty, Macintosh, yellow and red Delicious… so many flavors, which means there are so many ways to use them!
And Audley has been enjoying the many ways I’ve found to use all of nature’s bounty in baskets and on our kitchen table and on our cabinets….
Besides snacking on them, my oatmeal has been quite tasty the last several days as they make a yummy add-in. I also made some fabulous apple jelly and put up a few for later use.
By far the absolute best way I’ve used the apples was in the apple crisp I whipped up for us to enjoy last weekend!
Y’all, it was absolutely delicious.
It was also so unhealthy.
But, It was so delicious!
What made this even better was mixing the different types of apples and their unique flavors to create a symphony in your mouth! Combining the juicy tart flavor of a Granny Smith apple with a sweeter Rome Beauty is just the beginning of flavor. Audley really loved the mixture of flavor.
It was THAT noticeable.
Making an apple crisp may seem difficult, but honestly, while it takes several steps, it is so easy to create. Everyone will love you for it, and the unexpected ingredients raise this crisp far above any other you will taste! This recipe has the traditional ingredients of an apple crisp as well; oats, flour, vanilla, apple pie spice, etc… but the filling is really special. I mean who combines butter and heavy cream into the filling of their apple crisp?
I did, and it is over the top scrumptious!
And guess what?
The topping has butter in it as well.
Whether you pick your own apples or buy them at the grocery store; mixed a variety of apple flavors or just stick to one, this apple crisp is perfect for your next potluck, family dinner, or to sit and eat in the corner, keeping it all to yourself! If you show up to Thanksgiving dinner with this dessert you will be the family hero.
Y’all, I promise, it is that good!

unhealthiness deliciousness of this recipe, Serve it warm topped with vanilla ice cream or homemade whipped cream.
After serving this, if you don’t hear from your husband for a while, he is probably passed out on the couch with football playing in the background in a dessert coma.
Take this moment to change the channel to Hallmark, savor your own dish of Apple Crisp, and enjoy the peace and quite.
