Martha Stewart’s Apple Crisp

By Angelika Hanna

I came across many apple crisp recipes on my google tour, and eventually decided to go for Martha Stewart’s. It sounded like an old-fashioned recipe with all its ingredients for a hearty apple crisp that seemed perfect for a first October weekend.

As for the apple choice, I made my apple crisp with Gala apples. Martha Stewart’s recipe calls for either Gala, Empire, or Braeburn apples.
