apple crisp
One of the most popular ‘crisps’ we make around here is with apples. Sometimes if there’s a little extra fruit like strawberries or the odd pear or peach that should be eaten or used in some way, those usually get added to the crisp also. For a little twist to your ‘crisp’ try adding a handful of nuts or coconut to your topping.
