Clara's Apple Crisp

Growing up in my family, we used to say you have two stomachs. One for normal food and one for dessert. So even if you're full after dinner, there's ALWAYS room for dessert. (Really, it was just a way to be able to say "I'm full" to mom so you didn't have to finish your veggies but still be able to say, "I want dessert!") This is an excellent dessert to fill up that other empty stomach of yours.

And have you ever noticed how hard it is to get rid of the last two apples in the big bag you bought? I don't know about you but I'm always buying too many apples because they're so tasty and on sale! But I always find myself starting to get tired of apples by the time I reach the bottom of the bag. I'm always trying to find a use for them! (Besides helping a certain gnome make his robot look like a priestess in order to unravel a dire plot in Stormwind. I'm gonna miss that quest. *sniffle*)

Making apple crisp is a way to sweeten up the apples and cooking it makes them soft so you get a different texture and taste to mix things up when you're getting bored of apples. And you don't have to make a big batch either! You can make them in individual ramekins and have your own personal piece of heaven to dive into.
