An apple crisp is a classic dessert that features cooked apples as the main ingredient, topped with a mixture of butter, sugar, and flour, and sometimes oats. The apples are typically peeled, cored, and sliced before being cooked with sugar and spices such as cinnamon. The topping is crumbly and provides a contrast in texture to the soft cooked apples. It is then baked in the oven until the topping is golden brown and the apples are bubbly. It can be served warm or cold with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream on top. Apple crisp is a comforting and warm dessert, perfect for fall or winter.
