Tips for the Best Apple Crisp
Whether you are an experienced cook, or a newbie testing out a delicious recipe, guidance in the kitchen is always appreciated. So let me pull out some tricks from under my sleeve which will guarantee you perfect results every time!
Tip 1: Slice your apples thinly when preparing for this recipe for an even cook. Although we love a crunchy apple in most occasions, this recipe requires a tender bite.
Tip 2: Although I have always used regular butter for this recipe, you can substitute it with margarine or any dairy-free option if you prefer.
Tip 3: Don’t miss the opportunity of allowing this warm dessert to shine by serving it plain. Serve your Apple Crips with oats with a scoop of traditional vanilla ice cream, whipped cream, or a drizzle of salted caramel. The extra sweetness is definitely worthy!
