Old Fashioned Apple Crisp


Recipe: Old Fashioned Apple CrispOur family loves apple crisp.

I must admit we often just used milk (or a mixture of milk and cream) to top our warm apple crisp.

It adds a little bit of flavour and even if I have ice cream in the freezer, I still often opt for the milk!

If you ever make it and do not have ice cream on hand, a little bit of milk works as a fantastic replacement.
