This is the best and easiest 5 ingredient Apple Crisp you will every come across. I have been making this crisp for years. And I probably make it at least once a month.

Easy Apple Crisp

A few Saturdays ago, my husband, Kirk and I went out to Oak Glen. A hidden gem I never knew about. The original plan for that Saturday was to find somewhere that I could pick a few pumpkins for decorations around my house.

Pick your own apples

So, I did some research and found this place about 1 1/2 hours away from where I live. My husband and I were game so, we made the drive and found this quaint little town filled with apple orchards, pumpkin patches, sunflowers and so much more!

Beautiful Apples

When I was picking the apples, my mind was on overload. There were so many possibilities for these beauties. But, I knew all along, I would be making an Apple Crisp. It's easy, good and a family favorite.
