What’s cooking? Apple crisp

Apple crisp on eatlivetravelwrite.comMmmm… autumn/ fall – it’s in the air, right?  I think it’s my absolute favourite season!  When there’s that slight chill in the air but you can still sleep with your window a tiny bit open… I love weekend mornings waking up warm and cozy in my bed but able to smell the autumn air.  Chilly nights mean comfort food too, right? And what’s more comforting than a crumble for dessert?  And since, it’s apple season, for this month’s Kraft Canada #whatscooking assignment, I couldn’t think of a better recipe to share today than one inspired by this apple crisp.

It’s really simple to make too and uses crushed cookies in the crumble part – genius!
