Mom's Easy Apple Crisp

Many years ago, I met a girl from our church and we became great friends.

We shared many things in common, but a real thread that bound us was a love for Southern Living cookbooks!


It's been that long ago when we would pour over the magazines 

and collect the annual cookbooks and share our love of trying a new recipe!

We ate many Sunday lunches at their house.

Two reasons for that:
  1. They lived close to the church . . . and we didn't
  1. They could leave right when church was over . . . and we couldn't
By the time we got to their house on Sunday afternoons, she was able to have all the last minute things done and they were standing around waiting on us.

That's the life of having a pastor over for lunch . . .

you spend a lot of time waiting for them to get there!

Anyway; it's been a very long time since we've seen each other, but I still make a lot of our shared recipes.

This one, however, was not a Southern Living recipe.

I'm not sure where this is from, but the first time we had this, I knew it was a keeper.

It's so easy!

It's great for dessert or for breakfast! 

Try it warmed, over some waffles, or with a scoop of ice cream . . . maybe on top of the waffle!
