This is the apple crisp my wee little girl made, topped with my homemade ice cream. The apples were from my parents' tree; I froze some last fall.
We used the apple crisp recipe from the 1950s Betty Crocker Boys & Girls cookbook. Now, usually apple crisp is topped with a mixture of oatmeal, brown sugar, butter & cinnamon. This had a topping made of white flour & sugar and butter. The cinnamon was mixed with the apples. It was more like a butter cookie topping - kind of chewy & pale! It tastes good, but I would never call that apple crisp. Our ideas about food do change over time.
