For many people, October is pumpkin season. Don't get me wrong, I do love my annual pumpkin spice lattes, but for me, October is all about the apples. I love all things apples; a daily crunchy afternoon snack, a warm compote on a chilly morning, the list is endless - and the abundance of apples in the fall complements that perfectly.

APPLE CRISP // 9x9 glass dish

Preheat oven to 375.


8 apples

1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temp.
1/2 cup flour
1 cup rolled oats
3/4 cup brown sugar

What to do:

Peel, core, and chop 8 apples. I typically cut mine into chunks, others slice them into slices; do whatever you prefer.

Place the apples in the dish and sprinkle, generously, with cinnamon.

In a separate bowl, stir together the flour, oats and sugar. Crumble the butter into the bowl, and use your fingers to combine everything - ensuring you maintain a crumble texture. Sprinkle the mixture evenly over the apples.

Bake for about 45 minutes until golden brown.
