When I reach back into my childhood timeline, I think of the delicious oatmeal crumble apple crisp my great grandmother made me once. I remember the sweet apple being crisp tender and the crumbly oatmeal topping adding a crunch that made this dessert irresistible. Even though I had only had it that one time, it was enough to leave a lasting impression on me. As an adult I searched for this taste and each time I tried a crisp it always seemed to be missing that “it” factor, until one day I decided to take matters into my own hands. I channeled my great grandmother’s patience for perfecting a recipe and since I knew exactly what I was looking for, I created what I remember of that Oatmeal Crumble Apple Crisp I had tried so many moons ago. It has since then become my household favorite. Try it….I promise you’ll love it.
