“This is the best apple crisp i have ever tasted! The crisp part tastes like a shortbread cookie! Its a recipe from the food network show Barefoot Contessa. I only used 2 1/2 lbs of apples(about 5) but i prefer my apple crisps more crispy than appley! I also used Gala apples because they just happened to be on sale and it turned out great! You can use your own apple of choice! I also didnt have orange juice or the zests so i just used the bottled lemon juice and it tasted fine.You can also substitute berries, peaches, or any other fruit you like! This crisp also stays crisp if stored in the fridge!”
