Apple Crisp small batch

We had crazy fun in picking the apples this year. As the little man is growing, his interest in exploring the nature is increasing. He wants to be away from the home and have fun. And this year, he thoroughly enjoyed apple picking and was excited to see so many of them. Biting the freshest of the fruit is the joy of fruit picking. The little one was insisting on pie baking, but I wanted an easy recipe to accomplish my sweet tooth and also there was ice cream sitting on the freezer corner. So, I planned a small batch of apple crisp.

Basics of Crisp, Crumble and Pie dough:

Apple crisp is a easy way of adding the apple chunks with the basic flavors and some flours and oats to give the crisp texture. It’s similar to the crumble but crumble has flour and butter sans any oats and is basically a deconstructed pie. But, no matter what pie is the beauty of baking, where the crisp and flaky dough made from the frozen butter and flour does the magic of covering the moist juicy fruit filling.
