I was fortunate enough to have a dear friend share this recipe with me more than 50 years ago. The sweet-smelling combination of apples, cinnamon, sugar and nutmeg has been a welcome scent in my house ever since. —Cleo Lightfoot, Southlake, Texas

Added additional cinnamon to apples as well as topping. Vanilla bean ice cream and Carmel topping when serving...yum!

I've never really had a crisp that did not contain oats in the topping. This topping was not like a biscuit cobbler, but was somewhat crumbly. I used Granny Smith and it was really good!
