If there was ever a dessert that I would associate with fall it would be apple crisp. The warm aroma of cinnamon and the rustic appearance of the oats on top just seem to echo that of the season. I have declared more than once that apple crisp is by far and away my favorite dessert. Lately, this seasonal dessert has been making a regular appearance on weekends…ok, ok…on weekdays too.
While making fruit crisps is generally not a labor intensive dessert, a short cut is always nice, especially if it means the crisp will be out of the oven sooner and onto my plate.
A few years ago, my mom sent me the idea of making a large batch of the dry ingredients needed for a crisp, making it easy for you to quickly bring one together. All that’s left to do is add the butter and fruit. The nice part about this is that you can make a large crisp for your family, or smaller, individual ones…say for a movie/date night at home after the kids are tucked in bed.
