My mom’s apple crisp is the best in all of Texas, honest! I tweaked it slightly, though, and now I spend less time in the kitchen and more time catching up with my spry 92-year-young mother. —Joan Hallford,
North Richland Hills, Texas
Warm up your family any winter day with dishes of this oven-baked treat. If you prefer, replace the cheddar cheese slices with a topping of ice cream or whipped cream. —Mary Ann Marino, West Pittsburg, Pennsylvania
"When my siblings and I were young, we loved it when our mom made this old-fashioned-tasting treat," recalls Sharon Missel of Penfield, New York. "Now I frequently fix this comforting dessert for my family."
BOTH my sister-in-law and I both make this for Thanksgiving and Christmas. We both are aware that the other will have it on her menu, but we make it anyway. It’s a family favorite, which has become a tradition for holiday meals.
This dessert can be assembled in a snap and cooks up in minutes, making it a delectable dessert for unexpected guests. You'll love it served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped topping.—Suzie Salle, Renton, Washington
