Brown Butter Bourbon Apple Crisp

This crisp recipe makes enough topping for two crisps, because it’s always nice to have extra.

Almost any fruit and a little sugar will make you a quick delicious treat if you have some crisp topping in your freezer. You can make it as healthy or as decadent as you wish. I’ve had it for breakfast with yogurt and served it with vanilla ice cream but love it most with a big spoonful of creme fraiche.

It's also a lovely last minute gift to bring with you when you don’t want to show up empty handed.
