As the blog world is well aware, I am not much of a baker. I struggle following directions and it causes some issues when trying to bake. I have several go to recipes that are hits but overall it is not my forte'. Over the years I have dramatically improved my limited baking skills but apparently a good crisp still alludes me.
My apple crisp recipe is very tasty but I did not develop the crisp myself. The apples were all mine, the crisp was all Ashley. She is a quite an outstanding baker, despite her relative inexperience. She designed the crisp on my recipe while I did the apples.
With some of the apples I had left from our recent annual apple picking trip, I opted to make my crisp recipe. Somehow, my crisp did not come out much like a crisp, again. My apples were spot on but the crisp was a little off. Don't get me wrong, I still ate nearly the entire pan by myself, but it was not as good as when Ashley makes the crisp.
