Best Easy Apple Crisp is a wonderful way to use up those extra apples that you have. This recipe is packed with flavor and soon to be your favorite go to apple crisp recipe. I also love to top it off with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of fresh whipped cream!

You can even use this in place of an apple pie, with the Thanksgiving holiday that will soon be here. One of the nice things about apple crisp is that it is done in 1 hour or less. Pies take me 3 to 4 hours. Plus you don’t have to make a crust (which I am not good at) ha ha. However, you may just want to double the recipe. It says it serves 6 people, but if you are like most people, it is so irresistible you will find yourself going back for seconds.
