Perfect Apple Crisp

Recently, we moved into a new home and with this move, we were lucky enough to inherrit a couple of fruit trees.  One apple and one plum.  The bad news is that we don't understand enough about fruit tree maintenance just yet, so we only resuced ONE plum oNe, but that plum was the best I've ever eaten (the rest were either devoured by birds or fell off with a big windstorm onto our roof then into the gutter...dumb, I know!)!  With our apple tree, we just let it do its thing...grow apples.  Well, these apples LOOK like they're probably golden delicious, but they taste so much better! 

This apple tree has produced SO many apples and they're not ity bity small ones either.  They're pretty BIG, baseball-sized apples and so crispy and good!  Well, minus the WoRmS!  Yup, we didn't spray it, so probably 50% of the apples have worms.  Arugh!  *No worms made it into this apple crisp.*  So, with our new apple tree that we completely {HEART}, we've resigned to make sure we spray and do everything necessary to ensure we get that percentage of worms DOWN next year! 

In any case, I've been making a lot of recipes that include APPLES lately.  One of my All-time favorites is my apple crisp.  I have no idea where I got this recipe, but I've used it for YEARS and years and every time I make it for someone, I get oodles and oodles of praises and requests for this recipe. It's sweet, cinnamony and nutty and above all DELICIOUS!
