Mom's Cinnamon-Apple Crisp

 Mom's Cinnamon-Apple Crisp
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
